Some are even worse and hold a grudge for weeks. It’s pathetic. Very very sad people.
I’ve been playing the Ursa Major league and there’s a small group, buddies from some private league, that are just nasty.
They soft-play each other all the time. For example, 3 of them in a pot, last to act flops the nut flush, and they all check it down to showdown. In another hand, one of them limps from UTG, another limps, his buddy shoves his tiny stack, and they both fold instead of calling less than 1 more BB. Just to keep the other guy in the game.
Another time, one of them says in chat, “careful” when it’s his buddy’s turn to act. They fold, another buddy calls, and Mr. Careful shows AA. He then says, in chat no less, “I tried to tell you.” The one who folded says, “Yeah, I listened.”
Insults, soft-play, team play, outright cheating… in free poker. Mom must be so proud!
I take it as a complement. They know they can’t beat me playing fair. Hell, they can’t come close even when they cheat. Kinda funny, that. The insults mean less to me than a snot bubble from the nose of a newborn yak. I’ve played (and beaten) more than a few teamers when I was playing for real money, bring it on.
I’ve found that the lower the skill level, the bigger the mouth. Kids are like that, I guess.
