I would say 50-70% of live pros shoot angles.
-Throwing in an oversized chop "accidentally"
-Calling/Shoving out of turn
-Asking for a count out of turn (thereby demonstrating interest in playing the pot)
-Making statements like "you doin't have to worry about me" in a multi-way pot
-Saying "Did you say call??" in an excited fashion when absolutely nothing was said to make it look like you have the nuts.
-Not putting your BB out and then fake almost folding your very strong hand until the dealer says "wait its your BB" then you sheepishly take your hand back and everyone thinks your hand is uber weak (wrks well in the #1 seat - can't see the 10 seat)
-Saying "I check" or checking out of turn when you have the nuts to appear weak and induce action out of early position hands once the dealer says "its not your turn yet."
-Hollywooding -(possbily angle shooting or just gamesmanship??)

Some of these are angles and some are gamesmanship

I know that when old live pros shoot these angles in tournies it makes me think they are scummy and possbily perverts...
Worst list ever. If you think a majority of pros regularly do any of these things you are very ignorant. Successful pros don't have to do these things. Plus doing those things pissed people off and no pro wants that. Also, most of the things you list might work once at best. You have no clue what you're talking about.

So after about an hour of play i realise that tommy vu is that asain from family guy spoof and i say have i seen you on TV ? And before he can even answer toolbox say yes and starts going on about his tv final tables..at the time i never knew who this guy was so i politly said i was actually talking to tommy about the family guy spoof they did on him. His face went BEAT RED.....if i knew who he was at time i would of said no one cares about your poker tv time toolbox.....

Doug Lee might not be the biggest toolbox but you are hard pressed to find many people who are bigger toolboxes than him. That website is LOL.

On Wednesday in the WSOP $1500 event I had the unpleasant experience of being seated at the same table as Michael Souza, pictured below (he was wearing sunglasses at the table). This guy is the biggest jerk with whom I've ever played (an assessment with which Stars pro Anh Van Nguyen agreed).



Early on, he wouldn't stop berating Doug Carli (a middle-aged pro from Ohio and super nice guy) after losing a relatively small pot to him. After this went on for a number of minutes, I said to him, "Just stop, he's a better player than you'll ever be." That prompted him to say things like, "Don't you know who I am?" along with the ever important, "I bet I have more WSOP cashes than you" and "I bet I have more WSOP Main Event cashes than you." He refused to say his name (I got it by looking up the table draws and checking some of the things he said against his results, 100% it's him).

The next thing he did was an attempted angle. He raised preflop and got two callers. Flop Q83. He checked, second person checked, BT bet, he called. Person in the middle then raised all in. Michael Souza then, out of turn, immediately threw his cards into the middle of the table. While BT was thinking, Michael grabbed his cards back. To his credit, BT recognized what was going on and said something like, "Now I'm pretty sure I don't have you beat." BT folded, and sure enough Michael had a set of 8s. He then, amazingly, proceeded to brag about what he had done for the next 5 minutes.

The next incident involving him was a pot where Anh Van Nguyen raised pre and Michael called from the BB. Flop: K 4 x. Check, bet, call. Turn: x, check, check. River: A, check, check. Michael, who by rule is obligated to show his hand first, says, "I have a 4." To his credit, Anh sat there and said and did nothing. After like 5 seconds, Michael says, "And an A", and turns over A4hh. Anh was really pissed and said, "You were going to slowroll me." Doug said, "It's about time for you to get schooled." Michael said, "For what?" Doug replied, "For being an *******."

Michael then called the floor because Doug said he was an *******. Doug was given a 1 round penalty over the protest of everyone else at the table. Michael was taken aside and warned by the floor, however. Ironically, while Doug was serving his penalty, Michael busted from the tournament, having punted a fairly big stack by playing a hand terribly.

So if you happen to be seated at the same table as this *******, beware the angles, slowrolls and general douchiness. Feel free as well to 3bet him, c-bet a KQ3 flop and show a 2 after he folds, which is what I did.

So you're calling TT a liar.. hmmmmm, who's ignorant...???

Re: Doug Lee, biggest toolbox ever?

I apologize for my part of the derail. I agree there are a lot of douchebags in poker; that's obvious. But pros with decent winrates are not often douchebags or prone to angle-shooting. I'm done here and won't write again until I have a doug lee story to share.

Re: Doug Lee, biggest toolbox ever?

Was playing 1/2 at the Flamingo on Saturday and a guy who looked exactly like Doug Lee sat down next to me. He bought in for $100 and only played for about twenty minutes. At one point he pulled out a huge list of all the WSOP satellite tournaments to tell everyone about them. Is there any chance this actually was Doug Lee?

For future reference, if anyone is ever not sure if an opponent is Doug Lee or not, the winning move is to ask "Haven't we seen each other on TV?"
