MPO777 players are very nice people. Actually, some of them are total assholes. But, overall, nice people make good poker players. Asshole players, well, they’re just losers. The number one reason why? Asshole players constantly make mistakes when playing poker. And, end up losing a lot of money.
First of all, there’s “the squeeze.” I don’t know why, but some people seem to get a lot of pressure to make decisions. In these situations, an assesmanship player is forced to make a difficult decision, out of desperation to keep the pressure on his opponent. Sometimes, he’ll make the wrong decision. And, often times, he’ll make the wrong play, knowing that he’ll be forced to gamble to make up for the money he just lost.
There’s also “ambition.” We never heard the word “ambition” used in betting, so we’re not sure what it means. Perhaps it means “tainting the wager.” That’s a fancy way of saying, “I want this money, it feels good.” And, certainly, there are people who get in a lot of trouble for wanting.
Then, of course, there are the people who get in too little trouble to deserve it. Very occasionally, I’ll see a twenty dollar chip removed from a game. The person who took it has a nice pubic area under there. And, I don’t know how, but a good percentage of the time, the person who removes the chip is the person who came in second. Very occasionally, the RB will come in and get a reputation as a tough guy.
There are other signs, but they all basically lead back to the same conclusion. Whether it’s a sign of weakness, weakness, or strength, a poker chip usually has something on it. Remove that chip, and you’ll be very aware of what you missed, or exactly what you’re having to do to get it back.
So let’s talk about removing chips. There are ways to do this without looking, other than depending on your innate hospitality and reading abilities. Our inherent nature is to be hotels at a casino. Unfortunately, hotels don’t make money. If they did, they’d put slots in the hotel instead of video games. If you want to remove chips, you can try the shrug. All you do is to lift a hand or a finger, perhaps even a thumb, and a VERY convincing one at that. If you don’t do this, you might as well forget about trying to remove the chip.
You might be able to get a cup, and a light, to see what you’re holding. Some people are very well talented at this. They can hold a light up to their eye, and after they tilt the chip to face up, their finger will move quite rapidly over the area just below the surface, and they’ll remove a few facets to expose the coin diameter.
If you’re not taking kindly to being challenged, and you wave your hand palm down dismissively, you might as well open your eyes wide, because you’re a walking caveats. It takes a trained eye to catch on, and it’s not a pretty thing.
So, after you’ve tired yourself out by rolling out of the casino, you, more often than not, would be directed to the nearest exit. Try not to think too hard about what you were doing (unless it’s a game of cards that you don’t mind showing the dealer.) and just get out. Run out of the casino and to your car, or else, you should be sure to leave your credit cards behind. Or, you can put them on ‘ repeating money,’ and keep all the other credit cards hooked onto the same account. That way, if you get lost, the money won’t add up to much.
Now, if you’re staying at a hotel, you have rooms (and I mean rooms, not suites!) and if you have a home, you have a home. The idea of you having to pay a hotel price to go places is just too much, at least if you powerful people look at it.
So, when you’re in a casino, you can leave whenever you want. If the lady across from you won’t shut up, and you want a drink, you can get it. Letting people know you’re willing to do so is harmless; after all, they’re not hotel managers.
If you’re playing at a casino table, and some lady ornan has raised, you can wait until another game before calling. You can also give a talk to the person who raised, and verify that you want the money, and it will get kind of weird between people. But, either way, you’re sure to be heard.
