Pay off Donkeys at poker club

Currently playing in a 1-2 PLO poker club where the majority of the players will pay off when you hit your hand. They don't understand hand values but I also think they're all afraid of getting bluffed and this is super exploitable and juicy for the game and they all seem to love to semi-bluff. I've just been using my name like JSmith1988 but I am thinking of changing it to the name of a bad bluffer so they will pay off even more.

Examples include Jamie Gold and names like that, any other suggestions?

Or are there better names I should go with, perhaps someone they hate and want to bust? I find annoying people get paid off more often when they make the nuts. Any other ideas?

Way more +EV to focus on good play rather than hoping there's some magical name that gets fish to pay you off.

Hi Pierre:

If you think that annoying people get paid off more often, why don't you become annoying, and after enough hands you should have an idea as to what this might be worth.

Best wishes,
Mason

Keeping somewhat consistent with your 2+2 username, I vote for Jean-Robert Bellande. Might have to eliminate the hyphen and any spacing to meet the character limit

I think a goofy avatar has a better effect than a screen name.
