Re: What makes you cringe?

I'll start. People asking questions about "GTO" or "Solvers" in Beginner questions or MS Stakes, like yeah, that'll totally work in the micro stakes with all the rake and people shoving 79off.

Re: What makes you cringe?

Picking my nose. In fact it often makes me cringe twice. The mere act causes my face to contort which looks like a cringe. And whenever my interior digging doesn't put forth a specimen I often cringe a second time in disappointment.
Oh and this thread.

"I'm going to put you all in.", announced with an intimidating glare down the table in a 1-2 game.

Re: What makes you cringe?

- poker scenes in movies where they say "I'll call your 20 and raise you 20 more"

- pretty much anything dneg tweets about poker or life.

- the graphics on current WPT broadcasts.

Negreanu constantly displaying on his vlogs his 20 years younger significant others like they are trophies.

Don't forget the Tom Dwan clones; mouth wide open, tanking for 30 seconds before folding 67o in MP.

Re: What makes you cringe?

Scarves of European players.

People like Adelson who don't know a damn thing about poker and yet they influence it so much.

Players that eat cereal out of its brand name box at the table.

Articles and people that say they're going to make a specific movie and you never hear about it again.

Players who use vulgar profanity (especially G** dam*) at the table as if it was a Oakland Raider locker room.

The second post in most threads.

Lol I don’t cringe but yes I also don’t get it at all. Did not realize it was specific to euros but on review I guess so.

Also - talking heads calling David Peters ‘D-Peets’ 50 times in an hour.

Any player who thinks if he folds rags pre-flop before sitting motionless for a half minute he’s doing something wrong.
