This is a discussion on Chat at the Table within the online poker forums, in the General Poker section; It's Friday night at a 50c table why doesn't anyone want to chat? It should be a fun game.....damn no one wants talk.....kinda sad for
then... I usually only chat if it will make someone else tilt.
or the ocassional "nh"
I hear ya. I usually don;t chat a bunch during my day game but this was a "had one too many" game and I was just messing around. One person did actually start chatting with me and another told me I talk too much.....lol
What do you talk about? I'll sometimes comment on hands, or if someone comments on a perceived bad play I do I'll make some donkey justification like "flush draws usually hit on tuesdays."
I like to say hello when I sit down. If players are being chatty in a good way (pleasant, able to laugh at themselves) I'll chat back.
I'd like to think that there is some basic etiquette at the tables where you should say NH or GG. I'm playing at such small stakes that I don't think I need to be messing with anyone's head!
My thing is that I get really annoyed at rude comments when someone's on tilt. When you're playing for $1 or a freeroll, really! If you're going to get that upset about a bad beat, maybe you shouldn't be playing. That's the advantage of online play; you can mute the players!
When I chat I really don't have any set things in mind. I say hello and see where it goes from there. It's kind of annoying that people dont have the courtesy to say hi back. I was pretty hammered though. I don;t care as much about it tonight.....LOL
I have my chat turned off because people at micros make me tilt way too hard, and it goes both ways too. Too much toxicity.
I have one exception: if I've been in the same table for a while and everyone is chilling playing solid and there isn't much stealing and all-ining going on, I will turn on chat and start a funny conversation. And since I can only play with fellow Portuguese players, this is easy.
Yeah man, i know that the players are playing for money, but cant even they have some fun while we're on the table? I mean, nobody wants to say anything, only play the game with the same poker face for hours. Well maybe these guys think that distracting a little will affect their game quality. I like to talk on table, espcially when I'm with friends, buth trying not to bother everyone around, like talking to people beside me or making some funk of something.
Chatting at the tables is a double edged sword imo. I chat alot but find that after I make a "single serving friend" I play a tiny bit softer against them. I might fold or not raise because of the companionship which can lead to negative EV.
Poker is war and everyone else at the table is the enemy.
i use chat for fun.. sometime when im bored in big blind psition when everybody just limp ihave worst hand like 24o 23o i start to write "you guys better fold pocket aces here" i shove everybody fold lmao..
I also do not understand. People come to the tournament to play with friends and did not want obschatsya. Kind of weird. I have talked with their compatriots but prohibited site rules. English I know is bad.
No, I do not like talking about online games where a lot of people disrespectful and dishonest, not so in games with cards in the hand where the goodwill and respect for the other players warrants that he is kindly
sometimes chat in my native language if somebody on the table speaks it
otherwise i chat in english, depends on the table, and sometimes its funny to see people getting salty and start shittalking (usualy it russians that do that)
I love when people make the game more fun or interesting by talking. Then I laugh my @$$ off when people get on tilt and can't stop themselves from cursing and spouting out racist nonsense. Those guys don't last long. I find being friendly can cause people to hesitate when playing against you.
These days I don't chat. No need. Back in iPoker days I was friendly and made a few friends along the way, just casually. Now is different. Especially us players. I can no longer trust the poker community with that asset of which used to be a beautiful addition to online poker, chat.
