Im Kate or "DD'sinTn" (screen name ACR). Just wanted to say hello from Memphis and ask a question. I now that poler is a game but it seems that there are a whole lot of unwritten rules. In other words, people in live tourneys get mad if say an A5 unsuited wins against pocket kings. Im not saying its the greatest hand, but its a game and people can play what they see fit. I just saw n arguement at a table about this the ther day and the guy with the KK got super tilted because he lost. I just wanted some feedback from some more experienced players.... Thanks!
It's called Entitlement Tilt. You just have to learn how to deal with someone on tilt like this. You will never get rid of players that will tilt and berate other players for what they think is 'bad play'. I see it every time I play.
This is a great place to find out information on how to improve your form in poker play and also to gain some knowledge from experienced players. I would recommend checking out the rules in the forum section and to make sure that you assign your posts for the correct section.
As far as your play, we all run into hands that we agree or disagree with. What we can learn from is how to make a difference in the mistakes that we make. This is a great place to create a conversation about these issues that I myself, and most people run into. Even if you have the best hand, doesn't necessarily mean that you're going to win the hand. Sometimes it comes down to simple luck.
What you saw happens all the time. We believe that we should all live by a certain set of rules and get upset when others don't share our view. The guy playing the A5 no doubt felt that he was doing a fantastic job, and obviously it worked for him in that instance. The guy playing the KK knew that he had a fantastic starting hand, but found out that nothing in poker is a sure thing, and that it's really all about probabilities.
To argue the point at the table is a waste of time, but lots of folks do it anyway. The trick for observers is simply not to let it get to you, and certainly not to get involved unless you enjoy chaos and strife, which admittedly some of us do.
Hi DDsinTn, I lost my hand many times -KK-I was interrupted by cards -A4-A5-A6, the T5 card is not always good, but at some moments this card can play well, now when I play on the card - KK-I'm very careful!
Where I play there is almost never any negative argument on hands like this. Maybe cause 90% Of the players play like that lol but I've seen it happen plenty and player just shakes their head and says nice hand . At worse they get upset at their luck but never berate other player . Also dealer/casino would never allow that.
Hi Kate, there so many personalities in poker, much the same as life, it can bring out the worst in some people perhaps they shouldnt even play but they do so there are always going to be conflict, just remember any 2 live cards can win, I remember playing when I first began in online poker it was on fultilt, this guy said to someone complaining about not getting good cards he said you have to learn to play with the cards your dealt and it is so true to this day. Anyhoo good luck with your games.
