We all have people we want to do horrible things to.

That isn't what makes you awful.

What would make you awful is DOING it.

Wanting to do it and not doing so makes you a decent person.

When I need to vent I go to the dark side of youtube and unleash on flattards or chemtards. You know for a fact they deserve it so no need to feel guilty.

No, what makes him awful is taking all that pent up anger out on someone totally different.

Don't like the political talk at your table? There's nothing even that horrible about live trolling them. During the Occupy movement, I egged on a drunk about how the 30/60 LHE game was full of "****in' 1%ers," and then she went off about "Jew lawyers." Another time some douchebag went off on a server about "I don't know how they do things in your country but" and I just called the server over, gave him the tip that the other guy had stiffed him on, and told him that the guy is just mad that he's losing. You could see the steam coming out of his ears.

Don't like sportstarding? It's not horrible to look up a few lines and offer the sportstard a worse bet than Vegas, then go place the opposite bet to take advantage of their irrational exuberance for their team.

People mocking your play? No problem, just roll with it. Put on your angriest face and say, "You think I care about money? This is nothing to me. I could lose this every day for 15 years and still have more money than you." One time I got **** at a NL table for winning a big pot when I got called for 30/60 LHE. I nodded to lock it up, then announced very publicly that I was sick of this **** and yelled, "Is there a 30/60 seat open?" Then, I just took my stacks of chips and hastily stuffed them into my pockets and left the table.

The difference is that I did these things to the people who deserved it, not some random people at another casino where I went to pick fights.

The whole idea of this thread is pretty bad, but this one thing is hilarious. I would even love it if someone said it to me. Not much bluffing in O8 though.

Maybe a therapist visit would be a better use of your time? I know that sounds like an "internet warrior dig" but I mean this sincerely. You'd be surprised how much good it can do if you can get past whatever negative image you might (or might not) hold about therapy.

This.

And even if he's not, I don't think there's anything wrong with trolling IRL trolls for a laugh.

I haven't been recently, but a couple years ago the Borgata's 10/20 O8 game was so much fun to spectate as a player. That has to have been the most miserable, prickly bunch of people ever assembled.

Re: How Much Trouble Can I Get Into for Making Fun of Whiny Players?

Won’t you just fit in with the miserable regs? They are used to being angry and miserable. They like being that way. You would probably annoy them more if you acted like the happiest guy ever and tried to ‘infect’ the table with a joyful attitude. They would not be used to that.

Some of these guys probably play poker because it gives them something to whine about and makes them miserable. And if a game with the most miserable regs is their game of choice, showing up and being miserable just makes you part of the group. If you can make yourself look older you will fit in even more.

So maybe act like the happiest person ever. That will really throw them off.

Re: How Much Trouble Can I Get Into for Making Fun of Whiny Players?

You seem to be under the impression that I'm going to go in there angry and pick a fight with the first person I see. I'm going to sit there and observe, figure out the mental weak points of the most annoying players, then happily try to cause them emotional pain with a smile on my face.

I’m sure you’re just pulling our leg. But if I’m wrong do us a favor and get it on video.

Maybe it is. Perhaps if you were to tell us what those downsides are, we could help you to figure that out.

If I get one of those douches at my table who likes to build up these giant towers of 80 or more chips because he's compensating for something, then he loses most of it, I am going to ask what happened to his towers, then make a 9/11 joke based on his response.
So in other words you're not funny creative or goodat needling people
Have fun

Why bother driving all the way to another casino when you can rile people up on the internet from the comfort of your own home?

Just thinking maybe getting perma Banned for starting a disruption, or getting punched in the nose , or getting run over in the parking garage, OR maybe nothing much at all besides just having the table thinking you are a prick and treating you that way, or maybe nothing at all would happen negative.

Quit poker or find better people to play with. You’re supposed to enjoy the game.

Re: How Much Trouble Can I Get Into for Making Fun of Whiny Players?

I think you should make it a Grand Tour type project where you spend a day or two in poker rooms across America. Find the grumps, troll them to the bone, then just when you are starting to get a reputation for being a dick, move on to the next location.

That or find a hobby that doesn't tilt you as much, I guess.
