a debil smile makes the other player nervous, so they dont talk with me.
online makes fun to chat, but not with angry players, too much swear words.

When you're playing live poker, do you prefer to be quiet and observant, or do you prefer to chat and get to know the players?
I think you can perform much better when you talk to other players.
The first time I played live poker I didn't know anybody and it made me really nervous, nobody talked to me and they all knew each other.
It made me uncomfortable.
If you are prone to leaking information about yourself, then stay quiet, other than that chat and try and gain information, chatting may also help ease your nerves.

Sometimes I talk and drop things for fun, but in general I focus on the game.

No, I don't interact with anyone at the tables since I'm very focused on my game. I try to concentrate on making as few mistakes as possible.

Yes, a live game, of course, involves communication

Hi
I play only online poker only, and I write chat very often. I write so much and so often that Others always ask me: "Are you drunk?" But I am not. (I dont drink alkohole since 11.09.2014 - On that day, an accident happened in my life and I lost everything: Mum, Dad, Home, Job, Money... and freedom for many years. I am never drunk.

[I am a very sensitive and emotional person. I have been trying to help others all my life because I cannot ignore someone who is being hurt. I say what I think and I do what I say. I try to be a noble and honorable person. If something goes wrong in my life, I always look for fault in myself first, rather than blaming others. That's what my mother taught me. Even now I have tears in my eyes as I write about it...
I'm sorry for these personal topics, but I'm like an open book and very often people take advantage of my naivety and gullibility. I won't change even though the times require it. I believe in people and I will always do so. There are few of them left.]

I have marked many forum members. I always try to greet them nicely. When I lose a hand to them, I often write: "It is alwayse nice to loose with CC member. If they win with other player at the table - I write: "CC members alwayse Win"
When nobody answer I just write: "Ohh.. I see there are only BOTs at the table ;)" . Sometimes I get answers: "No mate - just try to be focus at the game"

If I would play live poker - I'm sure my mouth won't shut up. I'm just a big talker. I would ask other players millions questions :) and You know why... because people are different when they answer true and they are different when they lie. So, it could help to just know when they are bluffing and when they got the best hand.

Exaple questions:
Are You happy to play this turnament today? (of course YES will be true answer).
Have You ever speak with Aliens? (heh I am sure that only me got that possibility xD)
I hope You understad what I mean - there are a lot of general questions that You 100% know answer and You will know how the person react telling true/false.

Unfortunately, or by Happiness, at the present time I play only online Poker, and therefore while I can't to say whatever about this topic...
And Further Time Shows!..
P.S. In online Poker I decided this question simply: turn out chat quite, that to concentrate only on Game! That's it!

Online generally I just concentrate on my own game and not get involved with comments on the table. Basically pretend I am playing against a computer and take out any emotional triggers that could send me on tilt. Lie playing golf, try to remain on a stable footing and keep as calm and calculating as possible.

I used to do it when I played via PC, but now I don't do it since I only play on my phone and so it's very inconvenient

This is me Live and I'm not joking...so I tend to focus online as I've grown older.


Thank You Mate for that YT - I subscrible at start :):) It is amazing. I can imagine only what You feel. Few days ago I was playing good turnament and Pass 1010 hand after Riva. I am sure opponent was bluffing playing allin. But I was afraid - it was bubble. Blinds was so high... That pass demolish my head - I will never know what hand he got. I was eliminated in bubble. I was thinking non stop about that deal. Even today after few days I cant forget it :(
You are amazing. I like You at start :) I dream about playing live - but in my stupid country it is impossible. I was in Helsinki and try to go into Casino Helsinki - but I got only polish POI and Driving Licence but only passport must be, So I didnt enter :( Hope in future I will :):)

SALUTE My Friend. I am afraid I would be able to Punch that Man and made him serious damage, because I am full of emotions a sometimes I do something first and think later.

I can perform better when I interact with other players at the table. For me it makes a big difference.

Always! Be that person who complains about getting beat & has a low self confidence level....as far as the table thinks.

Play tight and the table bullies will inevitably try to push you off the nutz when they don't even have a pair. Easy money...

It seems to me that everything will depend on the character of the person, during a live poker game it is better for someone to be silent, and for someone it is possible to talk. Some conversations can interfere with concentration, some specifically distract the opponent from the game by talking and this is their style of play. Some people are very good-natured, during frequent meetings and conversations they can make friends with their opponents and therefore at a crucial moment they can show pity, but this should not be done. Probably everyone should determine for themselves how best to play.

I think the way to study players at the table is by observing their behavior. Conversations distract from the game.
