What Bothers You the Most When Playing?
Worst thing that happens to me is when my internet connection goes bad and the green bar appears trying to find a connection!And trust me i get that a lot and its so frustrating!
And the worst thing is when the connection comes back it feels like i am loosing my pace and my cool i had so far at the tournament i was playing.As a result i feel vulnerable don't know why but i get that every time...
And when my dog comes over and knocks his head on my feet but i love him so its not that bad!
I hate it when you made plans later that day and thought you might just make the money so your friends are like, 'are you coming? okay we'll wait for a few' then your head gets to you and you do something you normally wouldn't do and try and justify it before acting on it, then after you lose realizing that its because you need to leave.
re: Poker & What Bothers You the Most When Playing?
Bad connection really is the worst thing that can happen for me too, especially when you are playing cash game. You always get worried that your internet is going down when you are on that big hand. It's really frustating.
def for me with hands numb right now etc.. when am in few rooms playing hands and new software starts popping up for new events and lose the hands time out with trip aces stuff like that cause takes me forever to manuever not sure of spelling there my rooms click the buttons etc..
Is a new thing am adjusting but now over a week have no real feeling in first 3 digits from thumb on one hand and no feeling on other thumb lol.
Not sure what is going on with that but it sucks. Other thing is falling down a lot because of my heart condition so I broke my laptop screen have about 18 percent of screen so have a monitor use and sometimes forget to look on monitor pay attention using ear phones now since broke speakers lol in laptop so that helps to stay caught up most of the time but typing on laptop and looking at monitor took me an adjustment for awhile lol.
But you do what have to do haha
do you dare to dance with the devil in the pale moonlight
The worst thing that annoys me when playing is the "Bloody Telephone Ringing" and my missus looks at me to say "Are you going to answer it?". So guess what I answer it and its her sister or somone who doesn't care that I've just 3-bet the chip leader at the FT and starts telling me her husbands car is going wrong!! Thanks for that. Especially, knowing that she doesn't want to speak to me!! F it I say................ Sometimes this type of thing makes me go on tilt!!
So no I am not giving anyone my telephone number !! haha - gl all
Probably playing in a tourney for 5 hours than getting it all in as a huge favorite and still losing and busting out 12th place out of 1100 people. Stuff like that pretty much. But hey that's mtt poker for ya. You have to get used to these sort of things when you decide to play tourneys. There is just a huge amount of luck in tourneys so it's going to happen over and over and over again.
Uncertainty in the forces - is perhaps the most important reason of this problem. In fact UTB psychological reason, and it very much depends on the individual. Such people often drop all the way to the floor, or meet the first major failure, begin to read and speak all that - it's all garbage and scam. What is this all RNG all podkrucheno so on. You may have encountered such people more than once.
Laziness - or attempt to do it right, and do not feel like. If you want to chegoto achieved, it will have to invest time and effort, or even better not to take, just goes to waste time and confidence. Surely you remember when being more green fish in poker you think that right now, go down at the table for 10-30 minutes planted American fish and wake steep pepper. So this does not happen. BMA course may be lucky, and really an hour can increase his fortune say from 30 to 150 dollars. But it will not last you are sure to flood all of his money next time. Professional way - this is not the reliance on luck and faith in our strength and skill and further self-development.
Short-term planning - no need to pay more attention, if, say, per session we lost a few buy-ins, though played correctly. Do not need to change anything, play their game, such rejections and Streaky are, you will soon get used to them and wake up only look at the chart EV, and simulated distance will return you to your short-term losses. Keep this in mind and play for EV.
Serious attitude to the game. The game odds fan - if you want to make a poker - treat it just as a job, if the same to you is entertainment in the evening after work with a beer - that applies both to the game. Need to understand the differences. Once will not work to earn a poker if you treat it just like a game.
sometimes if everyone is playing with there chips in live games the sound freaks me out, funny thing is is that most of the time I dont care and then radomly it angers me and another wierd thing is I also play with my chips constantly but my own chip sound dosent bother me, wierd i know... I bring headphones or earplugs to live games so the off time it happens I dont lose it.
What drives me nuts is if I'm running bad all around like losing every cooler mixed with fish sucking out on me mixed with cbets not being effective mixed with being carddead mixed with when I finally get a hand and flop tptk or something like that and a good reg c/r me on the turn which means I'm beat more often than not, etc, etc, etc. Sometimes when multitabling it seems like all those thing will happen consecutavily like I can't get anything going. Luckily over the years I've learned to not tilt and if I feel like I'm on the edge I just take a break.
flexible working shifts. Missing the Wednesday live league in my area due to suddenly Wednesday being the 12-8 shifT! And that player that calls calls, bets bets bets everyone folds about 5-6 hands in a row, you play against his 7th hand and he got A,K or something like that...exsqueeze me??
When I play poker, between more things, the most that bothers me is those players that bet with nothing ("garbage hands") pré-flop and wins with impossible hands. It seems they have a pact with that poker room and sometimes it seems they have access to our hand cards and to the flop, turn and river before play. Poor skils but towsends of luck!!! They win because they play bad.
Badalhoco345 wins. The feeling that online poker is rigged and feelings of paranoia are the things that bother us the most. On the other hand, I'm just watching the wsop 2014 now and there are some amazing hands that seem like setups. I think it just shows that if you play enough you'll see some huge luck boxes out there!
I hate having to take bathroom breaks! I only play turbo sng so I can't just sit out a hand or two.
I hold it as long as possible but eventually I have to unplug my computer and hold it in my left hand, hold my wiener in my right and try to watch the computer and the bowl at the same time. All whilst trying to avoid spraying pee all over haha
