I want to start a ten commandments of poker thread just for S&G's.

Something like...

Thou shall think about folding pocket Kings, Queens, or Jacks when re-raised.

Honor thy player who comes in for a raise, when they have actively been playing a tight game.

Thou shalt not limp under the gun with 72o

or if you're someone I'm playing against:

Thou shalt fold AA in any positiion, even from the BB in an unraised pot (It's a trouble hand, it's only going to lead to a hard decision ;))

Thou shall not go all-in, suck out and win the pot, and then announce that you did that because you have to leave.

Thou shall not play 2 suited connectors after a re-raise because they look nice.

Thou shall not say: thank you after winning a pot without anyone complimenting you on your play or cards.

1) Thou shalt not tilt. Ever. I mean it.

2) Thou shalt think over every decision made for at least 5 seconds. Yes, even the times thou must 'check' the BB.

3) Thou shalt not play Razz. Because I sayest so.

4) Remember to place thine card protector over thine cards, to keep them safe from mucking.

5) Honor thy raiser when he is Under Thine Gun.

6) Thou shalt not murder Donkeys. Even when they really deserve it.

7) Thou shalt not commit adultery during the poker game. Wait until it is over please.

8) Thou shalt not raise simply to steal blinds, unless thou can get away with it.

9) Thou shalt not send too many false tells. That is what headphones and dark eyeglasses are far.

10) Thou shalt covet thine neighbor's chips.

--From the Book of Second Negraneu, 5:6-21

Thou shalt not complain moan and groan because you played the hand wrong from the very start.

Thou shalt not play 10-2 just because the old man does.

Thou shall not go all in on the first hand of a tourney with crap cards.

Thou shall not tell other poker players that they stink at poker.

Thou shall help the weak minded grow in the game of poker.

He who sayeth "one time" more than one time shalt be struck dumb.

Thou shalt always remember that a flush beats a straight.

Thou shalt never covet thy neighbors cards, only his chips.

And the most important

Thou shalt not try and take pots against DaFrench1 or stealeth his blinds

You have to repeat this about 20 times, I'm looking for a subliminal effect here.
