We sit around a table smiling at each other.
Meanwhile we all lie,cheat and steal from each other. LOL
Maybe that's why it's best I don't play live. I'm not a good liar.
A computer once beat me at chess, but it was no match for me at kick boxing.
I laugh a lot with this way of seeing things, it is a reality, I laugh a lot again,We are all liars and deceivers lol,We are thieves because we steal our friends when we are at a poker table
I'm laughing thinking about it all
good (funny) thoughts haha
im not a good lier aswell, but very often the money is necessary only for the game have a proposal (when you play with friends) and you can enjoy it without thinking about the prize pool
There is every one on the tables live, there is every character, there is the one who has his poker face all day, the one who is talking all the time, the typical fish, the typical shark, the friends who pass it Talking all the time, and then there's the one who plays quiet, ah, and I'm forgetting the one who plays with balaclava lenses and cap hahahahaha, it's all a joke
Boxers who also came to the ring in life can be good friends, but this does not prevent them from beating each other with all their strength)))) in any sport there is excitement and also a loser and a winner !!!!!
Most poker players are just everyday people. Some are good (most actually) and some are bad. Even good people get upset at times and say things that they regret, and there are certainly lots of opportunities to get upset if the cards aren't gong your way. Lying, cheating (metaphorically speaking) and stealing are just parts of the game.
In my opinion I believe that in the world of poker players we find all kinds of people .... good, decent, serious, good-hearted people, inclusuve I've known of people who when they get a good prize or become millionaires help To the poorest and most needy people ... but we must recognize that there are also bad people, bad character, full of vices, who if they win a prize, they waste it on inappropriate things ...
I feel like this rings much more true in cash games. I like tournaments much better because you can pay once as if it were a different kind of entertainment like a movie. In a cash game you always want that donkey to come back with more money and feed your bankroll. In a tournament it doesn't seem to work that way. I mean sure you want to get as many of their chips as possible but one or 2 buy ins is easier to walk away from at a tournament then it is in a cash game for me.
Not all players are liars. I frequently tell the other Players I got the Nuts, but they dont believe me and Pay and Triple bet.
And when I say I have nothing I am just Bluffing.. then.... they Fold! ???'
I guess they just dont trust me!
i must disagree. There are a lot good people i've had chance to meet at the tables, especially here at Cardschat. What makes a difference is that a "good poker people" consider this game like they supposed to, as a game
Since I rarely talk during a hand, simply putting chips into a pot would not qualify as lying...bluffing or acting weak is a strategy, not lying. When I play live, I am usually playing against the same people time after time. I enjoy their company and chitchat between hands, but we all know that poker is about competition....I tell no lie!
