For me, it would be insults from my opponent at the table. I consider such behavior unacceptable.

I cannot accept when a player lost a hand and then uses rude words and attacks the winning player personally.

Another issue I faced was somebody using words of national socialism which is forbidden in germany.
Other behavior which should be lead to a ban of course is to tell about folded cards as long as the round is not ended or to give advice what to do when two other players are betting.

Any action that interferes with a played hand from not playing playing players in that hand. Even discussion after a hand may be a problem.
But it is hard to get this mood all the time especially when players want to get others on tilt.
All things that are absolutely forbidden by TOS of the tournament or casino.
Touching other players to notice them that it is their turn to act. I hate to be touched by strangers.

I would not tolerate any hate speech, racism, or (sexual) harassment. But first of all, I would try to involve the floor manager so that the other person has to leave the room instead of me. If this would not happen then I would leave.
Maybe I also would leave because someone has terrible odors or unhygienic behavior.

If they are rude, prolong the game, collude, do not know how to lose, comment endlessly, try to cheat.

As I have said many times, I work as a dealer in a small poker club. I live in a small town with a population of about 70,000 people, about 30 of whom play live poker. What the players in our establishment allow themselves to do probably cannot be found in more than one poker club in the world). Our poker club is forced to hold on to each player, because when they are reprimanded, they get offended and don’t come for a while, and for this reason we sometimes have no games for 3-4 days, and accordingly the establishment loses money and we, as dealers, are not we get paid because we get a percentage of the rake. Dealers are treated like dirt, they shout at each other, and speak in a raised voice. The only thing that is prohibited in our establishment is hitting someone, but absolutely everything is allowed. I love the quiet and calm atmosphere at the poker table, when people come to play poker, and not to shout and leave all their negativity in this establishment. Therefore, any environment in which someone raises their voice, shows disrespect to other players or to the dealers is considered unacceptable to me, and as a player I would not play at the same poker table with such people.

I've never played live poker, but I think constantly moving around and running out of chips is what will make me leave the table.
Although it is possible that conversations also influence, but I don't know that.

Almost nothing. I would apply to the opponent as he deserves it. On the other side, if it would be profitable for me to leave, then I do not tolerate any indecency towards myself.

I would leave if there was too much swearing at the table or if players kept on going all-in when it wasn't the last stages of a MTT. In online poker, I would tolerate more bad behaviour than if it was in-person.

In my opinion, insults are unacceptable behavior. It doesn't matter who is insulting whom, but this kind of behavior would probably make me quit the game in most cases.

If I notice a suspicious attitude between two players, comments when a hand is being played and one of them is inside

It's tough to think of any kind of behavior at a live poker table that would make me get up and leave(especially if it's early in the session...), I mean over the years I've dealt with sore losers, rude players, also players with IMO tough to hear politic/ society ideas, players that by 'mistake' got involved in hands after they've folded etc.- I rarely to never even call the floorman... I can easily avoid this things affecting my game and also I can extract useful info on this opponents from their actions that IMO will improve my chances of making profit in the current and future sessions...

GLGL all at the tables 💸💸💸

According to my opinion it should be tolerated if 2 players want to discuss something intensively but it should stays in a reasonable level without
bad language and discrimniation.
I would say that im not a sensitive person but there are limits when tolerance is over&out - when it is a live cash poker table - it is still an option to stand up and leave.
I can´t give stories about that because i haven´t had problems @live poker tables in my past.

At the poker table and in life, I can't stand toxic people.
But if I win and there's a tasty reward waiting for me, I'll stay and endure.

If someone is bragging a lot, or making fun because he won me a hand.

I would get up and leave if my opponents were speaking a different language, i.e. not English. I would also leave the table if my opponents insulted me or mocked me.

1. Any type of racial slurs should always be unacceptable behavior and not tolerated (anywhere for that matter)
2. People that are too drunk to play (I know they are good for the game but they can also be very annoying)
3. Constant berating of other players, whether it's me or someone else
4. Playing a cash game with people that play every hand and take forever to make a decision

I'm not sure if I would leave if some of these happened but they would make me think about it for sure.

He begins to treat other players with disrespect, this is not conduct to sit at a poker table.

Yelling, foul language that I could not stand....I don't even understand why people who can't lose play in live tournaments and openly declare it....Such people should stay at home under the bridge or in the cave. ...

Verbally no limits, I can take it all including the truly intolerant words or cultural unmentionables

Anything physically damaging behavior like yelling too hard, blowing a whistle or physically having a tickle fight is unacceptable

I don't know if I would get up and leave. But surely insults and lack of respect are unacceptable.

Someone responsible for the event would be better to remove the person, in that case.

I think it's unacceptable if a player is rude and doesn't respect the rest of the players. But it's not me who's going to get up and leave, it's this player.
