The Ten Commandments of Poker by Nolan Dalla
This is from one of his latest blog posts and I love it!
1. Thou shalt practice good personal hygiene.
Is anything more important than this fundamental commandment? Think of those excruciating occasions when you’ve sat in a poker game
amongst players with body odor, or skunk breath. Or with players who dress in tank tops and have sweat pouring from their armpits. If you play poker in public, please do everyone around you a favor: (1) take a shower, (2) brush your teeth, and (3) dress appropriately at the poker table.
2. Thou shalt not slow-play.
What in the hell has happened to poker tournaments? What is it with taking two ****ing minutes to make every single table decision? If an opponent shoves and you sit there holding ace-king or a big pocket pair, go ahead — take some time. But these purely orchestrated moments of high drama on every poker hand are sucking the life right out of the game. Everyone gets bored to shit when the time-waster sits there like he’s playing heads-up in the Main Event, showboating his ass off, when he’s probably holding jack-four off-suit. Unfortunately, the problem of “slow play” seems to be getting worse instead of better. Even players who make the WSOP
November Nine are now taking so much time with decisions, they’re ruining poker on television. Slow players should be stoned to death.
