Hello.
I have never visited real casino. So I have a few questions about real live Poker.

Question 1. impolite players
I can only play freeroll games in my country. I play governor of poker 3.

And so many players in GOP3 say 'Thanks' after winning the pot.
It's so annoying and I get tilted easily. I think that's very unsportsmanlike.

My question is do people really say 'Thanks' in real live Poker?
Or people act impolitely? Even in real Poker rooms?

If someone is so annoying and taunt me, can I call security?

Question 2. Bingo players

In freeroll games, people never fold. So recently I'm afraid of making a Continuation bet.

Just like freeroll games, people really resist and float and call all the streets with no equity?
And some people really go all in the very first hand even in live Poker?

I'm so curious. Please understand my poor English.

I don't think that people act impolitely or say thanks in real live games.
Free games are diffrent from cash games, If they don't have equity they do fold unless they are willing to bluff you out of the hand. You have to practice some real games online to get a better picture of what's going on.

You will find the same players in live poker that you find online. Tilt management is a needed tool for any poker player.

It's rare that someone will taunt or berate you playing in a casino, it's more common online imo. Most people will not talk at all and just try to be as stoic as possible. But if it does happen, don't be afraid to say something to the dealer or pitboss. Good luck !!

Live Poker....

Entry Fees


Money is the key
Reentry or rebuy
Lets say you have 100 dollars after your first entry fee.
To reentry or rebuy for the first hour or more is 50 dollars...
You face 60 players The prize pool may mean a little to you , nothing to them, everything to another.
It may seen like a stretch < but its real>
You can renter twice ( other players as many times as they feel like, others have to borrow the entry fee from others and only have one shot.
Prize Pool Affect
The prize pool may mean a little to you , nothing to them, everything to another.
Find the scared money, go after those blinds.
Find the ( business owners who are seeking thrills ) Don't expect them to fold
Old guys value high pairs and Ace X , like they are gold.... You cannot push them off of any value hand
Player types
Hobby fun old timers out for a social event, wants to be able to tell the bad beat or suck out story, feel the rush
Some players live hate to be pushed off a hand with no to little equity.
So long as the rebuys are active ( expect a chaser to try to run you down).
Even after the rebuy period
You will find serious to hobby to tourists,
Old young disabled,
Practiced , trained, to never played before.

The dealer should control rude behavior at the table. They should give a warning to the rude villain and then ask them to leave the table the second time.

If the dealer is not handling the rude villain then call the floor or room manager to warn the villain about his behavior.

Of course you don't have to do any of this. You could just leave the table - that should disappoint the villain and room management!
Question 2. Bingo players

In freeroll games, people never fold. So recently I'm afraid of making a Continuation bet.

In my experience it is rare for live players to open shove.

Sometimes in the early levels of a cheap re-buy tournaments it is a shove festival because they want to double up quickly and easily or they will re-buy/re-enter.

These were all good questions. Don't let any fear or ambiguity prevent you from playing live. It will be a new adventure for you - hopefully a very successful one..

Good luck !

It would be rare for a player to say thanks after winning a pot in a live game. But live players can be rude in other ways - it all depends on your table.

Freeroll play is vastly different than live play overall - but you find bad players everywhere.

There are players who play on your nerves everywhere in poker and in real life and in live poker so I think it's not surprising just you should be restrained and everything will be easy to put on headphones and not listen to anyone:)

Firstly, it's important to understand that online poker and real-life poker can be different in terms of etiquette and behavior. In real-life poker, it's generally expected that players act in a respectful and sportsmanlike manner, and excessive taunting or rudeness is not tolerated. However, in online poker, players may be more prone to acting out or behaving in a way that is not necessarily considered polite.

Regarding the issue of players saying "Thanks" after winning a pot, this is not necessarily an unsportsmanlike behavior, but it can certainly be annoying to some players. In real-life poker, it's not common for players to say "Thanks" after winning a pot, but they may still express their excitement or satisfaction in other ways. If someone is being excessively annoying or taunting you, it's best to try to ignore them and focus on your game. Calling security should be a last resort if the behavior is truly disruptive and inappropriate.

In terms of playing freeroll games, it's important to remember that many players may not take the game as seriously as they would in a real-money game. As a result, some players may play recklessly or make unconventional decisions. It's up to you to adjust your strategy accordingly and try to exploit their mistakes. Continuation betting can still be a valuable strategy, but you may need to adjust your bet sizing and be prepared for some players to call you down with weaker hands.

Overall, it's important to remember that poker is a game of strategy and skill, but it's also important to behave in a respectful and sportsmanlike manner, whether you're playing online or in person.

Yeah, humans are assholes by nature, apparently. In this day and age of attention seeking goobernauts playing in a live situation, especially a freeroll, can be a bitter experience. I think players, these days especially, want to use their "social graces" to discourage players from being in a pot or to put other players on some sort of wanna-be tilt. Since they can't really get a read or read a player in general, they act out, kinda like a toddler when it doesn't get its way. Trying to actually make some $ in this situation can be unnerving. If that's your reasoning for playing poker then I'd seriously consider getting a home game together or maybe sticking to online, if possible. GL.

1) Any table can have trash talkers... is part of the game somehow. If you TILT better for him.

2) freerolls is just crazy. Is a sea full os fishes. My suggestion is for you to play very honest and safe at the beggining.

I used to think that players are rude online because they are anonymous, and can't be shamed. Live, there is far less really rude obnoxious players, but they do indeed exist. Taunting opposing players is widely accepted in poker rooms if it is done without name calling or rudeness. A player who pokes fun at a poor play will not be held accountable...it is as much a part of poker as bluffing. Ignore rudeness, and you will have an enjoyable experience.
