In many tournaments you can see different types of players. some turn to distraction as a strategy for the game of poker using the emoticons, chat. Can applying this strategy lead to better results in poker?
I will vote yes as well. If I can find a way to block chatters, I do. I pay very little attention to the emoticons. Personally, I find them amusing, I am sure others may object. Good luck and put those things that bother you on ignore.
It's a strategy for some players. If you look closely at the game table where 2 opponents throw various emoticons at each other, to irritate each other, you will see that the duels between them are only all in most cases and this without having very good cards.
when playing poker you can't let your emotions get to you. controlling them is very important. people like to play with peoples patience and run the clock/timer down, again you cant let that get to you.
