This is a discussion on Do you accept criticism in your game? within the online poker forums, in the General Poker section; you are playing other players and comes criticize you if this betting high if this winning all and other critics, I do not like and
if this happens online, anyone can talk/write whatever they want too, for you to see, your chat has to be open, so if you don't wanna be criticized, turn off this, if is a live game, is other history...
There are many cases when chatting offends each other. It depends on the education. There were times when I knocked out players in a knockout, these players are then very offended and begin to curse you. And as an offended viewer the whole game haunts you😂
Of course! ... I like to criticize my game, it does not offend me, but some think that I always play the same, but I do not always play the same way in all tournaments, sometimes I play Loose, sometimes tight, sometimes passive, sometimes aggressive, sometimes many bluff, sometimes I do not bluff throughout the tournament, but the criticism will always be good and must be accepted

Everything is said here! I don't think there's anything to add lol
This is inevitable, you will always be criticized, no matter how well you played, there will always be a person who will say that you played wrong. How many people so many opinions, how many people so much criticism, and poker is played by a lot of people.
Most people that criticize you are tilting. I usually respond back to frustrate them and put them on tilt even more. It’s paid off quite a few times where that player has dumped off the rest of their stack. If you easily tilt I’d probably avoid this approach because if they suck out when you’re about to put the nail in their coffin. It could cause you to dump your stack off instead.
If I have KJs on the button and I shove with 5 big blinds, and a guy on big blind calls with AQo and I sucker him out, it gets to me when he starts crying in chat that I'm a donk. Players who bitch and whine when certain plays were standard truly annoys me.
Other then that, if I'm sharing my hand history and trying to work on my game, then any criticism that improves my game I can gratefully accept.
Accept? Would depend on the person and how it was delivered.
There are plenty of instances where I may take something someone says and remember it for later. But if its during the game, I will say whatever I need to in order to keep the person speaking as long as possible. And try to get a more of a read on that particular player.
If instead they were simply being rude or condescending, depends on how I am playing that day. Either say nothing and take their chips if I can. Or figure out what I can do to get under their skin and make them unsettled.
...I cut my deck to the Queen of Spades, but the cards were all the same...
There is a difference between criticizing the game and trash talk in the chat. I like it when they criticize my game in the forum when I write or make a post about a hand and other players tell me their thoughts about this hand, but in the chat most of the time it is simply trash talk so I don't give it much Attention, in most cases I ignore the chat
Of course, I accept criticism, but criticism should be constructive and preferably with a hint how to fix the situation and eliminate the negative side of my game.
And cursing that you were lucky, and you won from below, this is for weak and inexperienced players.
Problem is, most of what is sajd is not criticism its just someone pissed off because they lost,anything other then nice hand or good game is out of line.Criticising someone play during a game is inappropriate and better left to the forums,what people forget is, in a freeroll people gamble a little more then if they were playing a buy-in so your going to see some real dumb play goes with the territory have fun there is always another game
Accepting criticism can be very hard. Your going along thinking your doing everything right. Your playing poker. Your chatting. Then wham a criticism comes. It hits you deep and you want to find a happy compromise. Sometimes it takes weeks. Meanwhile, the tides turn and you start to lose in poker. Seems superstitious but it happens alot.
The only solution is handle it the best you can. Like shown above.
Hi man,I accept criticism if it´s with respect but I don´t pay attention if opponents want to bother me,specially if I´ve just eliminated them ..Unfortunately,some players react so badly in those situations..
It is only natural that when we make a wrong or right move, some players have the habit of criticizing us in the game, but you have to stay focused on your game if you are playing well and if you play badly reread your game myself and do not care about the destructive criticism. I only comment on the compliments.
depends on the table. hip deep at a casino and some drunk donk is telling me how i overbet for my e/v or whatever the ****, he can **** right off. my bud at a home game telling me i may have missed on some value becuse of xy and z? totally accepatble.
you are playing other players and comes criticize you if this betting high if this winning all and other critics, I do not like and do not answer, I think that each one plays the way you want.
It may seem like criticism, but actually they don't care how you play. Their just trying to distract you. The fact that you are commenting about it says they are getting to you. Just ignore them, better yet turn off the chat.
You have to except criticism if you want to improve....i will never turn a blind eye to any criticism.....its all how u take the information in and proccess it....dont let the criticism hurt you but use it as a tool to become better players
I suppose you need to be opened for criticism, but also you should take an advice only from these, you consider the authoritative. Then, when you play with the friends you can follow the suggestions of more advanced ones, but when you play online with random people why should you care? The only purpose of criticism during play is to annoy the opponents.
