The most typical repsonse from new or bad players is constantly complaining about bad beats and being ul.

Even in stated 50/50 or 60/40 flips there rage has no bounds.

Why rookies? It depends on the type of player's temperament and psychology. Richness doesn't matter either, as both poor and rich people equally hate to lose on the river. Another thing is that experienced players may resent that a rookie is very lucky in the tournament. But this is a factor of underestimating the opponent or overestimating their own abilities. :unsure:

I see such players every day. Every day I watch players who, with a better hand or a worse hand, it doesn't matter, lose, and at least in half of the cases they start talking about the fact that it's all falsification and so on. I think such people, such players simply cannot cope with their own emotions and this is their biggest problem that prevents them from developing and improving.

Well, if I need to tell you that, I must tell you that I'm very good at Poker. I never make a wrong decision, but somehow the 'godly spirits of poker' realize my expertise, and, in sympathy, always let my opponent(s) win. :):):):):):)

I lose attention at a certain point in the game I lose some hands but when I concentrate and I can focus on the game then no one can hold me back.

What is something that only new or poor poker players say/do at the table?

Let's start with when they lose a hand to that 1-out terrible river card (we all know that feeling) and then, instead of shrugging it off, they go off on a tilty rant about how poker is rigged or the winner is a horrible player for even being in the hand in the first place.

LOL it sounds to me like you have been watching a certain streamer on twitch. LOL I actually got banned from his stream because I beat him in a hand with bad cards. LOL

yes, the winner is a terrible player, I agree with this conclusion🤣🤣🤣
for me, the river very often ends badly for my hand and good for my opponent

Weak, recreational players tend to overestimate the strength of their hands. They might call large bets with marginal holdings, hoping for a miracle on the flop.
Weak, recreational players tend to ignore fundamental poker concepts like pot odds and equity. They play based on gut feelings rather than calculated decisions.
Weak, recreational players tend to limp rather than raise. This is also a sign of weakness.

i just lost with 4 aces in my hand...

I guess you did if you were playing Badugi or Razz. A bit more explanation would help in future.

Thank you.

P.s We have one of the best Badugi players I have ever seen on CC. I know it is her favourite too.

When a player complains about how aggressive their opponent is or about the sizings of his value-bets (which this player still can't resist the temptation to call with weak holdings 😂).

When someone calls my all in on the flop when I'm ahead and they get lucky and get their card on the river I'm the one who's bad at poker? It starts to feel rigged or that I'm cursed when it happens literally every time everywhere I play.

It is very common for new players or those who have not yet developed the ability to handle losses calmly and rationally to react this way. Attributing defeat to bad luck or the opponent's supposed incompetence is a clear sign of lack of maturity in the game. Most experienced players know that poker involves a combination of skill, strategy and luck, and understand that bad plays or unfavorable cards are part of the game. Instead of ranting, these players tend to analyze the hand objectively, identify potential errors in their game, and look for ways to improve in the future.

There are quite a few players who like to whine. Almost every day I see people accusing poker sites of rigging, at least during the game, I see such statements regularly in chat. And most importantly, such people accept situations in which they win with a worse hand as a given, and situations when they lose with a better hand they consider falsification, a common phenomenon.

When I'm playing against someone else and I know that his hand is better than mine, but deep down I believe that mine is better, and in the end he takes my chips, and I keep wondering why I'm like that kkkkkkkkkkkkk

Hi :)
Like most of us, I often see comments from opponents that the site is not working properly, the algorithms are bad and in general everything is wrong because the opponent had AK and the opponent had AQ, and the opponent won and this is wrong. All I can say is comments like this just make me smile :)
