What would you prefer the other players at the table to think?

Imagine for whatever reason you make a ridiculously bad call for all of your chips on a cash table and you luck out. You end up doubling up and your opponent is hurling abuse at you. Do you reply, if only to wind him up more and increase his tilt or do you apologise and try and explain yourself? Even if you don't reply, what would you prefer the rest of the table to think? Are you ok with them thinking you are a donk? If you value your reputation, how do you act to convince them you are that reputation?

Well, the amount of money you stand to make at that table is somewhat tied into what sort of image you portray. Ie: if they think you are a total lag donkey, but are actually a good TAG player that just mis-clicked or whatever, then it pays for them to have the wrong impression of you.

As for the player goading you, I say you should say whatever it takes to keep him angry and on tilt, because as long as he's tilting, he's just dead money waiting to get scooped up.

Making a bad call can be very advantageous due to the image it gives to you for the rest of the players, especially if you are normally a tight player. I rarely chit chat when playing online, so if someone is raging I prefer to focus on the game and try to get the next solid hand which is going to stack him again, or another player who thinks he finally has the donk cornered.

I rarely chat myself unless I see a player from BRM or a couple others that have been good reputible players. I actually try not to play donk hands and if I happen to beat A,K with A,9 and someone starts harassing me I pretty much keep to myself and wait for a hand to challenge again. really like to think I'm no donk although we've all chased that flush and hit pizzing off the opponenet.

they can call me whatever they like as long as i'm taking their money/chips,although if it was a really bad call i'd probably just say sorry and try to forget it.
it doesn't matter what people lose to there are those who just like to call other people names when they lose a hand.

If im about to win a hand either its in a tournament or a ring game, i dont really care
what they think of me, nor i will try to explain why i played like that.
Although a couple of times i have miss clicked with total crap and won the hand.
In this case i just told them what happened.

I'd like them to think I'm a complete donk. Then I can get maximum value out of my monsters Tongue

Acting like a donk is great Smile Other players would call or reraise all of your bets and this guarantee you great pot and winnings with your good cards Blink

Most of times i wouldn’t reply for a comment, only if i was playing against other regulars that somehow could already recognize my nick from those tables. If he knows I am a regular, I believe he would never think I am a donk, because he certainly have seen me in the past doing great moves and getting nice pots with very well played hands. So, I think I would prefer my opponents to think I was on tilt! This way they knew (better if I was a donk) that they have more chances to go for my chips later on the game. If I was a donk, most probably I would be getting away from the tables after getting such a double stack victory!

Never answear back or start a fight at the table.Will distract from the game.Better thing to do is to close the chat window and try to concentrate on the game.You got lucky,be happy about it and look for bad beats,they are coming after you

That will for sure make the opponents went on tilt, so, no matter if we have done it right or wrong or even if we did it not thinking about it, the idea is to weaken our competitors so we can reach an even better result. Good thinking uhhcallmi!
