Freudenfreude is a made-up word, a take-off on another real German word. This new word has been coined to mean, “Happiness in another’s good fortune.” (The other word, by contrast, is happiness in another’s misfortune. Only bad people indulge in that other emotion, one would assume.)

Are there moments during poker games when you experience freudenfreude? I am happy when I see someone who has played hard and well with tough cards suddenly catch a break and land a big pay-out. How about you?


I am always happy for others luck and well play,that makes me happy when some one does it!!! Its so beautiful game and sometimes its very lonely when things dosent go your way but i have to say i have meet stunnig peopel here,yes i have come across crazy peopel but i always say good no bad,then they calm them self!
