3 things that irritate you most at the table

FuzzypupFuzzypup Posts: 2,577Subscriber
Didn't see this so I thought I would start it....

List 3 things that drive you nuts, irritate, or annoy you at the table.

#1 Slow players, especially in an MTT.

#2 Short Stack Players:

#3 Loud Talkative Players: who never shut up even when asked.

    Constant strat or poker term talking.

    Players who feel the need to tell others how to play after every hand

    Players who immediately sit out once it gets 6 handed or just walks around. People who walk around are always fucking huge nits.

    The strat and poker chat doesn't bother me because of the content, I truly feel most players have no idea what do with the knowledge, but rather the condescending attitude they give "bad" players which ruins the mood of the table.

    Low limit players talking their time like the decision-making is 20k deep. Don't mind so much now and then in a spot but its mostly preflop. Waiting to look at their cards like they're in a 2k deep in a hand against Zack himself or the main event final table.
    I've gotten burnout traveling last ten yrs 4+ hrs for 5/10 and have been playing at my local casino, 10 miles away, which only runs $1/2 and a rare Saturday night $2/5. Its been a TOUGH transition.
    I'm astonished how these players take time preflop to make a $6 raise. LOL
    Some guys wait till the player to their right completes preflop action, waits for 5 seconds then look at their cards, thinks for 15 more and folds! I want to stand up and beat them with a chip rack. (Obviously I make no mention of it as to keep the table friendly)
    2. Regs who try and use rules to angle casual players. Making the casual player feel "swindled" even though its within rules etc
    3. Foxwoods(and others) for not allowing food at the table. Countless good games have broken because 2 or 3 guys want to eat.

    Wearing headphones/watching a tablet at the table. Slows the game down and kills action. As an aside; wearing sunglasses. You look like a fucking tool and you give a vibe of "I'm taking this veddy serious." Fun players recognize this and will try to play better. not a good thing.

    tanking constantly. There's a guy in my pool who postures every chance he gets, even pre. No coincidence he's fucking awful at teh pokerz, but cmon you're making it seem like this is a competitive sport and not a fun game.

    refusing to straddle. stop being such a goddamn nit and "gamble" with the rest of us.

    I could go on and on but these are the three that come up off the top of my head.

    - HIT & RUN
    - Short stack nits
    - Nits that play 1 hand (by play I mean fold pre) and walk for 30min then back play (fold) 1 more hand and walk for another 30 min

    Mouth odors & assholes that brag about their kids going to college and how many business they own but yet they are playing cheap tournaments and $1 $2 cash. As soon as they become short stacked the conversation ceases

    Sunglasses at the table. You're inside you douchebag, act like it. If you're that insecure about tells, work on them.

    Slow players. Preflop and flop mostly. Take all the time you need on turn and river decisions.

    Button straddles. They seriously kill the blinds and kill the game. I get the advantage of it, but it's annoying being in the blinds. Imagine how a rec player feels.

    That's only two things.

    Bitter that one of those "assholes" didn't send you to a school that can teach you to count to three?

    1. Rule sticklers vs obvious recreation players (e.g. betting out of turn and minbetting to get a free show-down)

    2. Regs/Pro's who take an age to call a small turn or river bet vs a recreational player.

    3. Smugness

    1. guys or gals who such at the food stuck in their teeth. so grossly distracting
    2. players who "tap on the glass"
    3. players who at nitty about showing their hands at showdown. they always try to get everyone else to show first before deciding if they need to show regardless of who is supposed to show first.

    Have to add #4 to my list.

    Sit down at a table. Wannabe young Euro LAGtard tries to run over table and lowers my winrate because I gotta play tighter. I patiently wait for a to nab him. Get the right hand. Get him all in. He sucks out. Now that doesn't make me mad. What does is....... He leaves the next hand after all the time I invested figuring out his game because he has something else to do.

    That makes me want to rip that backpack off him and beat him with it.
