At first i think i would just politelly told him to shut the f..k ul and im not anyone bi.tch , i would like to watch the next call against him wiem he loses his chips. From my early steps i learned that you should respect oponenet , i know people react different but mostly when they lose on river. Here after winning that comment was inappropriate.

To be honest I have seen players like this in live game and a few time been on the receiving side of the foul moth players. In tournaments there is not much I can do but play my game and hope the opportunity to take there chips happens.

Now in cash games its very differnt. I will let the 1st time slide but not the 2nd. I have litterly just annouced to the table something like, I know im not good enough to play at this table with a profesional like him so I will take my eazy money and go home. good night. I actually one was caught by the floor man as i was cashing out my chips once and he asked what had happened. I told him he made it clear i was not good enought to play here and my money was not wanted so im leaving and going to a diffent poker room where i can play. Dont know what he floorman did after I left but the look on his face said a lot.

I know these guys are mostly playing for the cameras and are probably friends, but I've seen Airball in other shows and he's a real Ahole, imo.

That is the perfect way to handle it. If you get into it with the loudmouth it's no big deal for him because it probably happens a bunch. But if the gamerunner/casino/cardroom people talk to him that's a whole different story. And the other players will be cheesed off too. Well done.

From my first steps I learned that you should respect all your opponents, I know that people react differently, but especially when they lose in the river. Here, after winning that comment, it was inappropriate.

Seems like a lowlife to me, and I don't lose any sleep over what his sort says. I've been called twenty times worse than that more than a few times, so I wouldn't even feel his little thorn hit my skin. ;)

Sadly, some people never learn to be gracious winners.

In a cash game i might just leave . In a tourney I suppose I'd try to ignore him .
