What is your opinion on rail support for a friend or fellow forum member? I think that it shows your loyalty to them and how you are here to help them and support them at all times. However, when I rail some people (no one on here...yet!) and they lose the tournament or sng, they then send me a pm, email, or instant message and tell me how bad of a railer I am and that it is all my fault that they lost.

Keep in mind that THEY are the ones who asked ME to come and rail them.

Back to the topic. Do you think that railin is such a good thing if the people that ask to be railed "blow up" after they lose?

Give me some feedback on this issue. I really want to hear what some of you have to say about it!

As always, Good Luck at the tables.

rail support is where you go and rail someone at the poker tables. rail= go watch them play...cheer them on

Anyone trying to blame you for their loss in a tourney is an idiot.

I once railed Freakakanus for like 5 hours when he won the $20 deep stacks tourney at stars for like $4K.

I think railing is good and supportive, but if someone is a jerk to you later, just stop railing them.

Being railed makes me play better IMO, so I definitely don't mind when people rail me.

I think railing, specially other CC people is a great thing and fosters a real feeling of community.

i dont know if it makes me play better, but it definately makes me feel more comfortable and i feel like i have to play better. i guess thats polar opposites, but when i am comfortable, i play better. *shrug*

i think when i'm uncomfortable, i play better. i've found i usually win when the "best" poker player of our group is in. when he doesn't play, something about it makes me play worse, and i lose.
