Thumbs down Re: Etiquette for handling slow player in tournament

I'm pretty sure players like this are just using the spotlight to look like sexy methodical poker geniuses (in their own head).

All eyes on them as they broodingly replicate the Fedor Holz mannerisms they saw on ESPN.

Re: Etiquette for handling slow player in tournament

Calling clock - which generally gives 1 minute - isn't going to speed up a guy who takes 30 seconds for every action. And a guy who takes 30 seconds for every action is going to massively slow down a game. Even a 10 second shot clock with a bank can slow a game a lot if the players are using all 10 seconds on every action.

Re: Etiquette for handling slow player in tournament

I try to not let it bug me, though that is difficult.

For someone who is this obvious and clueless, I would like to.try open mockery, or maybe just stare at him for the same amount of time it took him to act before you even look at your cards.

Of course, he will interpret any response as confirmation that his super advanced super disciplined approach is rattling the fish

Don't call clock. Just call the floor. If you call for a clock, the floor will think the guy is just tanking on this one hand. If you call for the floor and let him know that the guy has been stalling for the entire tournament on every hand then he'll have the right information and can help you.

Re: Etiquette for handling slow player in tournament

Oh Christ.

They're having one of those boot camps at my place of employment TODAY.

And my manager reads 2+2.

It's been nice knowing you guys.

(At least the price has dropped substantially. And the pro coming to town is a guy I can respect, unlike the charlatan mentioned above.)

Re: Etiquette for handling slow player in tournament

I'll sometimes ask the dealer where the camera is so I can make sure to get my fair share of camera time too. It makes the dealer laugh but never really speeds the guy along. I'll also whistle the Jeopardy theme. Same effect.

One place I play doesn't have dedicated seat change buttons but they'll hand out the little quarter sized clear plastic lammers they use to separate stacks in the well. I've been tempted to (at a cash game) request the seat change button and then chuck it at the head of a tanker. I'm not quite old enough and definitely not big enough to get away with it without fear of getting punched. Though if I got punched they'd likely 86 the guy so maybe not a terrible result.

Have this video queued up, and every time the action is on him, play it.

Re: Etiquette for handling slow player in tournament

"if the action were on you, sir, what you you do?"

When enough of the table clowns someone often enough, you often see the desired change (or they go on monkey tilt, and the situation resolves itself soon enough)
