Chat Strategy

Do you guys using chat strategy to 'mindf...' opponents ?

At my table today one said Gotta go and shove utg preflop K7s. I called with 55 and the flop came king.

I bust (itm) and he keeps playing without any weird play (close to the ft)

What are the other chat talk at the table to mindf.... players?

I wouldn't pay too much attention to chat, but what's really best case scenario there? Coulda been worse...

I think the villain was genuine here. K7s is hardly premium that he would be trying to induce calls with.

Re: Chat Strategy

You can use chat randomly - It will affect 1 in X amount of players.
Make sure it doesn't change your thinking and way of play though - could be dangerous

Re: Chat Strategy

I prefer to avoid psychological games because I don't think that such games are good for the atmosphere. Instead I try to joke around whenever possible, hopefully without coming across as a jerk, in an effort to have as much fun as possible and to encourage a fun atmosphere at the table.
