It can be part of the game but I would rather concentrate on how I play. Put making comments is part of live play as well. Cannot remember which pro I am thinking of, he is not offensive but deliberately talks excessively through opponents tough hands to affect their concentration.
Not the nicest of tactics but not banned either. But that one is more of a live tactic but highlights how chat can be used.
What is not forbidden at the table can be used.
I don’t usually communicate verbally during the game, but if someone lives with it they can. Obviously if you bother someone it can nicely mute the chat and you’re done.
Some toxic players always use rudeness and insults to gain their psychological superiority. There is no point in paying attention to these haters, since they are flawed moron, and this is a diagnosis.)) Therefore, the "doctor", that is, you, never holds grudge against the patient.))
I think it’s part of the game, but I don’t like it. On live poker this type of strategy makes more difference because it’s difficult to ignore a player that is next to you, but on online poker I just close my chat.
i had a player tell me i was the worst poker player he had ever seen after he successfully bluffed me, i dont know what his game was.
Anyway I invited him to play me heads up and sat in the lobby, waiting for him to join me i pointed this out in chat he tried to continue i pointed out well if your right easy money and repeated this several times.
This shut him up he did not come and sit me a few hands layer i took him out of the tournament I have not seen this guy come to my table again I ever offered him my phone number so we can arrange games whenever he wants that I can make. Note I did not post my phone number publicl but offered to find a way of giving him it if he wanted.
He did not take my phone number he did not sit me for heads up he did not speak anymore.
It is a side trick that has low chance to work. You can attempt it and it sure attracts attention. But it is not like something unfair, on the contrary - it partially mimics conditions that live poker has.
No need to pay attention to the chat. Clearly, the chat is just good for distractions. If I want to chat then there's facebook. I've had it so much that at the beginning of the game I saw a photo of a beautiful woman and sent a heart, but it only happened once. If you look at it you can see that not many people use chat at higher levels where the buy-in is already higher. I think you can take an example from them.
As an emotionally unstable person, if you want to "tilt" me or "get into my head" or get me "off my game," the chat box is the least effective way to do it. If you are talking trash, I just don't pay you any mind. I'll happily banter back and forth, and shoot the breeze with people to pass the time, but you aren't going to gain some sort of advantage over me with it.
