Just curious as to how some of the Mobsters react to players that run their yapper at the table and attempt to get your goat or throw your playing off.

Example: I'm playing and my A,Q gets beat by a player who hit a set of 6's. Player goes on making statements of various sorts like "Wow a pair of Q's two pair it's the nuts for you probably" and some other things.

I usually tighten up and rarely allow anyone to provoke me other then my reply to this player was, "Fortunately we're not playing live because you'd be bleeding by now". That's something I will usually state.

Anyway how do you react or not react?

Just as a general rule i really do not care what players post in the chatbox...

This is not something new i actually said it in older posts. There is no reason to get into a dialogue with such a player.

I have a great new plan that just seems to put those types on a bad case of TILT...!!!

I tell them something like....

"I know what your problem is,.....your mother and father are actually brother and sister, and YOU are an incest baby.... They were so ugly and desperate, they did each other...."

This usually gets them to swear at you.... Once they start swearing at you,....keep taunting them. They will undoubtedly wratchet up the swearing....

At that point,...notify the chat monitor and complain and ask to have that person blocked....

Once the person has been blocked,...just watch the sudden change in their play, and keep taunting them....and ask them why so quiet all of a sudden....

Most of the time they get really screwed up and start betting and playing all crazy and wind up putting themselves out..... Big Smile

I usually ignore them, but I add comment/information, that shows the player is weak psychically...

It's very useful information, because in poker, if you can't stop your emotions, you're pretty weak...

'Fisting',....is a term for a certain act performed on,....or should I say 'in' SOME women in an extreme case of being in 'heat',....if you know what I mean.... Blink

Didn't know if you were aware of that....

Sure,....I'd so called 'Fist' a few of them too given the opportunity.... Big Smile

Players that abuse the chat in such a manner are either on tilt themselves or they think it gives them a psychological edge on others. Watching how they play should tell you which. However, those that play such head games are usually more susceptible to having the tables turned and going on tilt themselves.

If they are really obnoxious though just report them and then block their messages.

Learned a long time ago to have my chat off when its possible.
Thats the best thing to do when you want to be concentrated.
Unless i see someone i know and we have a chat in general.
Never talk about poker at tables.

I knew someone would have the best answer and only logical way of dealing with this type of situation. What's funny is, we're probably all guilty of doing just that at one time or another. What's great is they never yell back!

Very humorous reply!

I just ignore them and laugh at their stupid comments, like the guy who said " I hope your whole family die in a car crash" , I just look at where it's coming from and know that person is so immature . so like I said just ignore it and laugh.

back in the days i use to chat back @various idiots provoking me, or just trying to get into chat wars...got a few chat bans to my name Agree later decided it's not worth the effort- i just turned off the player/observer chat and find this is by far the best option. just concentrate on the game, not the side effects

If that player is from same country as me,I will insult him until I move to another table or he will be moved to another table or one of us will loose,of course he will lose.And if the player is from another country,to prove I'm smarter I search on google their common insults from his country Agree

Generally and most usually I totally ignore the brainless idiots who think tghis is a valid tactic...its just downright rude and unnecessary.

However, I have been known on one or two occasions to give as good as I get especially when im blowing someone away heads up/....LOL.........
