How does everyone else feel about the chip leader ?
Also , whats the best advice for not feeling so intimidated by them?
Don't let that d-bag with stack screw with your head. More often than not (at least at some of casino's I play) the guy ended up there playing 3-5 off and sucked out a straight on 5th st. with a b.a.c. 2 or 3 times the legal limit.
I used to get in a twist about this, too. Until I saw some utter trash being shown on the river. It pays to compliment this kinda play, by the way. They'll keep doing it. I just waited for my spot and flat called pre with good holdings and shoved after the flop.
Been paid off many many many times over by guys like this.
