i just want input on what kind of personality u bring to a table (obviously a live table) ... read this little story of why i am asking this question, and then answer, this story has meaning to my question... last night i played at a 1/2 NL cash table and 3 hours in im up about 450$, having a really good night, and this girl sitting to my right, who was a very tight player but had a lot to say and we bullshitted the whole night through... anyways our table gets down to 6 players and the dealer says they were breaking down the table so we could move to different 1/2 tables and said this would be the last hand... I get Q 9 of spades in the cutoff, and i raise it to 12$, everybody but 1 person calls. FLOP is A 8 4 ... all spades, i flop the 2nd nuts, the woman to my right, bets 50$, i smooth call and the rest fold, the turn card is a 3 of hearts, and she says to me "are we going to bet like maniacs? or can we check this one down" me having the 2nd nuts, and wanting to make money, says lets bet like maniacs, she throws out 150$ pissed i wouldnt check out, i go all in and she calls (she had a little over 500$ b4 the hand started, and i had her covered) she flips over J 10 of spades for a jack high flush and i win the pot... after i win the pot she says to me "you could have checked down with me, thats all my money dude" and she starts crying, now my question is, do u think its a good idea to be buddy buddy with a person the whole night and risk having that happen, im a poker player i play to win money i dont care if they r the weaker person and want to do stupid shit that cost them money, but at the same time i made a woman who i was being buddy buddy with cry for about 5 minutes and i hate to admit it but i felt a little bad. so anyways, do u think its better to just be quiet and just play cards, or to try to be buddy buddy with the risk of winning a huge pot off some1 u became good friends with at the table and then have them hate ur guts when its all said and done.
