What kind of behavior at a live poker table would you refuse to tolerate, that would cause you to get up and leave?
If a sore loser keeps yapping about the hand he lost against you... what a bad player you are blahblahblah (actually happened in a live PLO cashgame session .. He flopped a full house and I turned a better one . He lost 340€ in 2 minutes :LOL:)
Only as a last resort though. I'd call the floorman to hear what he got to say about this behaviour

If a player announces what cards he folded during the hand.

If a player announces what hands are possible as the board comes out. This is actually illegal in Nevada.

If a player tells another player to call or raise. Even non-verbally.

If a player is holding up the game with poor behavior.

Perhaps - and just perhaps - a player is yelling in my ear, spilling his drink on me - touching me inappropriately. Or I might just felt that player instead.....:D:ninja::ROFLMAO:

To me this is delicious behavior from a competitor.

They are expressing their lack of skill.

They are tilted and you have them emotionally where you want them in a poker game.

Not only would I stay at such a table - but I would top-off my chip stack and buy in for the maximum.

I can't stand an insult to me if someone just like that said bad things to me because he lost the hand. I could not stand it and quickly shut his mouth so that he knew where he is and playing poker it's not my fault that he lost like this, they dealt cards if he doesn't understand it, it's very bad

Its difficult to say, because its really situational. But if someone are doing things, which are against the rules, like the ones Poker_Mike mentioned, and the floor is unwilling to stop it, then I would for sure leave. And I would also leave, if I felt uncomfortable at the table and did not enjoy being there. Many casinos have multible tables running, so the first resolution would be to try to get on a different one.

I've had my share of live games in casinos, poker rooms, & home games. Have seen very talkative to the very drunk players on the tables. Playing mostly in my country & familiar with the culture, I would say that there is probably no behavior that would cause me to get up & leave the table. If anything, I would just ask the annoying player to get out of the table if the other players have not already called him out. The poker culture has low tolerance for players that do not abide by rules & ethics. The game is taken seriously as many try to make it as a living.

The worst for me is bad winners. The ones who win the pot then gloat rudely about it "give the chips bit#h". Or something like that.
I dont mind sore losers, I see that enough to tune it out and they usually calm down and apologize soon after, but I can't stand graceless winners. I've stopped playing at many private games because of that.

Hmm, I wouldn't get up and leave - I would take their money and smile (I do that few times...)

I don't tolerate any kind of shit towards any of players at the table - if someone assault anyone, I wouldn't be quiet...

Anyone who slows down the game to irritate or bring people off balance and then acts like this deserves much harder punishment than me just leaving:

This guy kabrehl is the perfect example of "enough is enough" lol.

The most pathetic human being that ever sat at a televised poker table imo.

If it got to the stage that someone would have to leave, then indeed i would probably leave, but the villain would also be leaving with me, whether he liked it or not.

I will certainly not accept insults addressed to me or my fellow diners, of course nerves don't bother me when I'm playing at the table, of course I wouldn't tolerate swearing either.

I was watching reruns of the wsop me 2015 the other day. and there was schwarz. his table ettiqutte was beyond deplorable for someone like me and it would tilt me at the table itself. if they just didnt talk during big pot hands or heads up hands I'd be alittle less inclined to critsize them.

If players are allowed to verbally insult, berate, or bully other players at the table, I would call the floor and leave, if possible.

I would quit if I lost all my chips. There are no other reasons for me to leave the gaming table.

Hard to say...

People who are drunk, smelly, obnoxious loud mouths, or who simply look at me in the wrong way, are a reason enough for me not to sit down with them in the first place.

Why would I leave a poker table because of the behavior of someone else? If a player is misbehaving, the floor staff usually takes care of it.
However, if there's something I wouldn't accept at the table, it would be insults or racist comments whether addressed to me or to anyone else. That would make me leave if the player in question is not thrown out of the casino, to which I might never go back again.

@Suns of Beaches Yah that guy was a real PIA but I'm way smarter than him and If someone called me on something... idk... I'd probably call the Moderator on them and get them an infraction! Because I'm smarter & stuff like that. (btw, Stars sucks! and I let them know it too!)

I will not tolerate abusive people. I am also not talk about rude players or people trying to tilt me but abusive to me and my fellow players. I have gotten up a few time to leave due to players just crossing that line and both time they were abusing the lady's at the table. Many of them don't play live that I know play online or in our poker groups as they dont feel comfortable going to he casino and playing in a room of 100 players and they are the only one or 1 of say 2 or 3 playing in the good old boys room as my friend put it. One time when I had enough was hen the player was just going after my friend relentless in the game and just getting personal. Even the dealer and floor were starting to tell him to come down but he would not. Right in the middle of the hand I stood up grabbed my chips and said I wont play with this A@#Ho%$ and walked to the cage. I was stopped and and asked why i was leaving and told them why, 5 minutes later that jerk was escorted out of the room. Sadly, my friend has not gone back to the poker room since.

If someone gets tilted and start to insult me agressively, I'll talk to someone on the casino. If the behavior continues I just leave the table.

I will call out racism, misogyny, bigotry, bullying, and other hateful and disrespectful behavior. I will not leave until my opinion has been expressed. I was warned once that it was improper to ask a misogynistic asshole if he was having a bad day or was he always an asshole. I was told I needed to choose my words better,

In my opinion the bahevior who I can't tolerate at the poker tables it's when you insult other players of the table or very drunk and impulsive,the dealer must call the security and get the trash out of the game,but it's hard to manage this for the moment

The reasons that can make me leave the table can be different and quite a lot. But probably one of the main ones is if the opponent behaves inappropriately, if he insults me or other players.
