When they start spilling their drinks or food all over the table. Or if they vomit on the table... which I've heard a dealer tell a story of that happening before. I think It's time to cash out at that time. Just have someone clean my chips first.

It doesn't bother me that players even say insults on the air, but when their words are addressed to me, I wouldn't tolerate it, although I won't leave the place, I'll make the person come to their senses one way or another if no one else does it

after a 'dealer beat ' its time to cash out ! when the dealer does a burn and turn early , and the card that would have won you a huge pot ( which you now lose ) , is no longer on the board , get going before you lose your cool .

This is quite an interesting question, in fact, there are several things, but first of all, talking at the table, no matter under what pretext. Yes, we have all seen jokes and banter between the players on the shows, but for me the game is about concentration and my talking should be tolerated. Speaking a language other than English. Talking about the development of the flop hand about how someone lost the hand and was the favorite. For insult or self-harm.

For me the number one issue that would force me to say "ok, that's enough!!" is poor behaviour from other players. Like tilting and insulting or scolding someone because you didn't like the way he played.

Another reason for me is if you don't realise that sometimes you have to not be so talkative when other players are involved in a big pot and want quietness in order to think about their hand with a clear mind. Also I don't like at all drunk people in my table who demonstrate obnoxious behaviour.

I think insults are the line and when player talks when they are not in the hand or if they fold and they would hit something big and they talk about it or even when they face says it( when the hand is still in play after that u can say if u want )

I would stand up and not tolerate gloom and lack of respect for the players and especially for myself.

I would not allow any insults directed at me. People often, having lost in poker, blame not the game itself, but their opponent, who played the wrong cards, did this or that incorrectly. And they don’t notice their mistakes. I don’t like these conversations, losing means losing.

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.
You forbade any re-enactment in anything Nazi-related in your Grundgesetz 👍🏼 we even have an own law "Verbotsgesetz" which makes the whole ideology illegal. Stuff like Hitlergruß can be fined more heavily than in germany .

And yes even online people harass Austrians and Germans cause of that idiot with the square beard...
Extremely often I get insinuating "88" bets on the table 🤨🤨

Behaviour during the game must be polite and civilised. If someone passes some red lines and his behaviour is unacceptable, then the game authorities must act and take measures for the player or the players who are unacceptable! I don't think I would leave the game, because I wouldn't take part in that behaviours.

Generally speaking, there aren't really any things that would make me leave. If I was very upset by someone's behavior and it irritated me a lot, then I would try to use various sociotechnical methods and try to make that player leave on his own. Initially, I thought that the limit would be that someone would start having sex, but I'm not sure if that would cause me to leave. :D

There is no point in leaving the table because of the offended.
I think insults and personal attacks are not allowed at the table, but in a fit of anger anything can happen.

I think poker etiquette is important and should be followed by all.

I think that bad language, insulting, berating other players should not be allowed and goes on far to much sometimes.

This is such a negative thread I don't even want to consider how bad it could be.. yikes ... I will stick to online thanks. It seems even they are doing away with live chat online, at least at 888 where I play. Only those cartoon throwable thingies are left as reactions, unless I can figure out how to turn that off too

What kind of behavior at a live poker table would you refuse to tolerate, that would cause you to get up and leave?
I would not play at a table where the opponents do not respect each other. That is, if my opponents insulted each other or insulted me, I would leave such a table.
...... and would come back after a while, but with a baseball bat :)

I would leave the table if my opponent started insulting me with his statements.

Unnecessary foul language and rudeness to me or any player on the table, whether they are drunk or not, it doesn't matter.

I will leave the table over rude behavior! Won’t tolerate it! It’s leave or make a fool of myself for dealing with it!

It really depends on the situation and what's going on, if fish are acting like idiots it's not really a big deal however:

Not accepting insults thrown my way if they're asked to stop (depending on what they're saying & the inappropriateness)
odd one but somebody repulsively eating finger foods & touching cards
People on hard drugs/severely intoxicated

Really? I look for these players at live tables.

Hopefully they're having a great time being loud and obnoxious!!

I would hope you can handle it considering your name and avatar. :rolleyes:🍻🍸🍹

If their behavior is disrupting the flow of the game.

If someone is concentrating on being the butthead or the clown most of the time that is all they are focused on and are losing at the poker game.
It won't take long to bust them and they will move along.

If the behavior is bad enough that I am not enjoying being there, then I will leave myself.

If my opponent insulted me during the game, I think in such cases I would leave the table.
