We've all been at a table where we've lost hands that the other guy had no right in the world winning. But to put icing on the cake they come back at you with some retarded comment. Let me know some of the comments that really get under your skin in situations like these. For me I just cant stand the old "TY".

"TY" used to do it for me.

I have really had to turn things around and just consider how lucky I am to be at the table with such fish. I now enjoy it when they make such comments as it is likely a sign of just what a fish they are. My money is only on loan and I will get it back...with interest.

I simply respond "nh" and ask the poker gods to keep them at my table a little longer!

I wish I could say nothing bothers me and I don't steam, but I really hate it when some idiot blinds down all of his chips. Then gives me garbage when I call his all in nothing raise with a weak hand because of pot odds.

Even more then that is when some idiot tries to justify his bad call due to pot odds when he really has no idea what they mean. He just uses them because it’s the loser’s only hope to save face.

I too would like to say I'm bulletproof. Alas, someone will beat my very good hand with a great hand, and try to berate me. I mute em.

And the number one answer is....

Probably the best strategy for dealing with the idiot comments. And best for your poker game.

BTW, I didn't want to give the impression that nothing ever gets to me. But I work really hard to not let the comments affect my temperment. I am more likely to find myself steaming from a string of bad beats. Nonetheless, I think one of the most underrated skills of a good poker player is the ability to avoid tilt and play a solid game even in frustrating circumstances.

I like to say "It was all skill, no luck" after I get completely lucky. Usually people laugh. Usually.

I am getting better at this. (online - no real live experience)

I`m one of the "nh" brigade. I think of the times I muffed out someone else.

I also remember some poker expert saying that it is pointless telling everyone how bad a call another player made. The other players really don`t care and the guy who took your cash laughs.

So no point going OTT !!!

The best wind up comment I know is this :-

Freddy vs Jimmy

Freddy sucks out a seemingly impossible draw to knock Jimmy out of the tourney

Freddy :- "Have all the fish gone now?"

I hate it when they have a terrible hand, and get a lucky flop and then go on saying that "you called with that" when i had them dominated preflop. best thing to do is ignore them and move on. Sometimes thats hard to do though

"nh" doesn't annoy me, it's when they say "nh" EVERY hand. Then proceed to throw the v in front if the winning hand was trips or a boat. I realize some people are just trying to be polite or friendly, but as I tend to tell those people...poker isn't about being civil, if you want to be civil, go play chess.

Ty after I lose a good hand to a better hand p's me off. The most unique comment I have heard lately came from a player where I bet the pot after the turn. This individual had the guts to inform me that I raised because I was scared to let them see the river. Not only was I shocked but I had the decency not to repond. Actually did not have too. The rest of the table did it for me.

The nh or vnh is aggravating when a person gets really lucky with a bad hand. Now I know a lot of people use this as a back handed compliment but there are those who are actually giving props to someone who backed into a good hand.

I play at PS.

The chat used to annoy me when they would get the miracle runner runner and say things like "sorry about that"

I always click the info tab now, that way I don't get to see the chat.

Doing that means I do not get distracted.

I hate it when someone calls bets to the river with a massive hand and then says "Ty". "Why didn't you raise?", says I. "I wanted you to hang yourself." "But you have position and could have raised me at any time! Worse case that could happen is me betting/folding?". "Stupid Fish". :eek:

I love it when a really bad player starts winning from suckouts. I start telling them "nh", to try and keep them in the habit!

I'm a lover of fish! I'm patient (and getting more patient) and I can usually pick the fish off the table. I just hate losing to a fish and then having the tables restructured. I WANT MY CHIPS BACK!!!!

Guess you've not played much chess! I find poker to be much more civil...and I play a lot of chess.

EXACTLY!

Until you understand this concept, you don't understand the game. If you are not getting bad beats, you are not at a good table (not good player, but good money). If you scare away the fish, you lose money! Rule number one of fishing and poker: DON'T SCARE AWAY THE FISH!

Click to info tab

Yea, but you dont have to go to the info tab. I know you are aware that click on on the chip stack for the drop down window and then remove the check marks where it says "player comments" and " observer's Comments" or something like that.

But, best to mute out players and observers in order to conscentrate on playing poker.

Seriously, I'm not bothered by any comment someone makes. Usually it is me making these godridden remarks. My favourite is (when I win a hand I shouldn't have) "nh" to myself and add to it "thanks. I guess it was well played" :p
