I would not play at a table with players who would insult me. For me, this behavior of my opponents is not acceptable, so I would leave the table in such cases.

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.
Entertaining though. Not condoning his behaviour at all but in the past it has been entertaining.

Yes its definitely kind of entertaining to watch as a spectator i give u that.

Under no circumstances i would find him entertaining while playing at the same table.

Guy is a complete sociopath. The podcast he did with (doug?) confirms that imo. Complete weirdo.

Nothing wrong with being a bit different but yea he can be quite annoying and I agree, to be actually witnessing it in person will test anyone's patience.

If the order and harmony of the game were not present.

These can be some facts, such as if the dealer doesn't know his trade, can't deal the cards:rolleyes: or can't do math:rolleyes:, doesn't understand the rules:rolleyes:, or just doesn't do his job justice:rolleyes:.
What doesn't work is cheating or changing the rules and structure of the game(n).
Other reasons would of course be insults, discrimination, racism, physical violence(n), etc. – reason, decency and respect are the “tripod” that supports the table.
Probably also heated discussions about :censored:politics or religion.

Bad language persistently directed at the table and a hint of violence brewing. It's not worth sticking around to be part of a scrap.

I don't tolerate any kind of aggressive behavior based on nationality or color. This is typical of idiots and bad people. I don't wanna any proximity with this kind of person. And I'm sorry to say that I saw it many times in poker tables, mainly in online games,.

I am not one of those who can tolerate insults at the poker table and leave because of a boor, I believe that players who violate gaming ethics should leave the tournament with the help of the gaming room administrator.

I'm usually very tolerable of most behavior related to winning, loosing or tilting - just comes with the game.
Unfortunately smart-aleck childish behavior and bulling are also is to be expected - with todays morals.

:unsure: What would push my intolerable button and motivate me to move on?
:cautious: Collusion - multi-player cheating - Can't beat those odds!
Good Luck, Gary. :geek:

I can't think of a persons behavior that would make me stand up and leave a poker table. I only play live tournaments, no cash tables. I've seen people escorted out for being too intoxicated, and also seen a person be asked to leave because that player kept seeing another players cards. The other player was not protecting their hand, and made it easy for other person to see what they had. The floor gave both a warning, before asking the cheater to leave.
I don't like people being disrespectful, or tanking to often.

In any sport for me disrespect must be not tolerated. So if a player at the table disrespect any player or dealer, than this player must be removed from table and excluded from the tournament.

"I wouldn't appreciate aggressive and disrespectful behavior at the poker table, such as excessive slow playing, the use of inappropriate language or gestures, as well as unfair play or attempts to manipulate other players. I value an atmosphere of respect and professionalism during the game, and I hope for mutual respect and sportsmanship from all participants."

My first rule is to play with people whose qualities, virtues, weaknesses and flaws I already know. Several times I have been in a game where exactly the situation you are looking for an answer to has happened.
Personally, no one has ever managed to throw me out of tune with their deliberately inappropriate behavior or even an attempt to deliberately provoke. (Non)players of such character are in most cases the weakest at the table but with deep pockets. Brutally and honestly, I solve such cases with one sentence, but the same sentence.

I played offline poker only 3 times in many years and had no problems.
And there is no such situation, no way I should leave a table. Come on, the others better leave.

Blatant or not that blatant misogyny. It's actually why I wouldn't look at the live poker direction any time soon. Also if there is someone aggressive and rude.

I wouldn't tolerate insults, it's a game and you have to have a great time, even when you're losing, this is poker and it doesn't have to be a war at the tables.

Something that would make me leave the table would be aggression and personal insults.
But as this must be against the rules of poker, I would simply notify those responsible and warn them about it.

The actions of others don't affect me greatly, so I can't easily think of a situation. But I would believe that a person who just beat me on a bad beat and mocks me could be the situation where I would leave the table.

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.
Based upon your answer I thought you'd get a kick out of this movie quote. :)

I think that from your point of view there would be nothing that would lead me in a certain situation to retire without a lack of funds, in the event that a certain player tries to disturb me, I will dedicate myself more to that player to get him out and that's it

I wouldn't tolerate any type of rude, toxic, unfriendly behavior that ruins the fun for players at the table. It's better to discuss things with dealer and rest of the table and ask such "unwanted" player to leave, instead of losing players who behave well.
