It's quite irritating being card dead and not being able to shove or reraise these guys and put them off balance. So my thinking is poker is more than a cards game it's a mental game.
So without the card aspect what subtle or non subtle way would you use to throw these two guys off? Make them upset or cranky??? Just to get them to have negative energy because it was all going their way.
Keep asking for his chip count?
Ask random stupid questions?
Ask if their dating?
Anyways you get the idea, let me know what you would do if you came across this and wanted to upset the balance.
Honestly what you are suggesting is SO against poker ettiquette it is almost ridiculous. This is the kind of behavior one would expect from a child.
Play your cards, if you are card dead then fold, if you are in position and have been playing tight when you make a move even if you don't have cards you have a good shot at stealing the pot. Or wait until you have a a playable hand.
Play poker don't be an asshole at the table. Karma is a bitch.
