re: Poker & Abuse at a table
Dealing with Trash Talkers is part of Hold em.
Never let it effect your game.
If you want you can reply back.
But remember most times this is what they are looking for.
They want to effect your play in some way.
If you reply back I would suggest:
If you get the nutzzz.
Provoke them in the proper way.
No Trash talk.
But challenge them.
Showing your intelligence not getting into a trash to trash chat.
Fire with Fire
But choose your words so you don't step out of bounce.
Just ignore the chat or turn it off.
Either way make Hold em an enjoyable experience.
Don't let ever get to you.
