We all play poker, we all stereotype based on players and where they come from.
Here's a break down:

UK: Generally solid, but mostly lack the aggressive nature to be top players. A few top players amongst them but not really known for being a nation of poker masters; slow and steady.

U.S. : Unable to get poker online - angry

Russians: S**t their pants EP, Mid-P, Button...well anywhere with an Ace something. They continue to pursue any draw whatsoever on any textured board. When not spilling vodka and onion on their keyboards they will hunt you down aggressively like a pack of Dobermans using the mystical power of the Ace, somewhat akin to a magic ring in that the user feels empowered and ready to wreck sh1t.

Australians: Descended from the sperm of UK exports, they somehow have ended up as the top of the top when it comes to blindly piling chips in with s**t. Generally unable to calculate how many children they have fathered, let alone how many BB they have left, they will continue to plug pots with dubious draws and raggedy chit until the kangaroos come home. Will then continue to berate the losing player when they suckout and drop a bad beat in a display of assinine pseudo-alpha online keyboard warrior taunting, making everyone with a keyboard want to smash it off them for having the audacity to try and prove Darwin wrong, that people can devolve.

Eastern Block, Bulgaria, Romania etc : Often aggressive but usually very solid and play like the money means something to them. Often have the skill to back-up their TAG play and can be a real menace.

Germans: Well stereotype or no stereotype, generally they are the most solid players, tend to make well judged decisions and are tough to beat unless you have the nut hand. These guys seem to understand the game very well and at higher stakes know their stuff. probably have read books about this game, unlike Aussies who cannot read.

Greeks: A mix of feta and olive oil these guys or girls play like their economy is collapsing...oh wait. Hyper aggressive with anything from Ax to paint in any position, sometimes tough to read due to the craziness of their play. Some genetic resemblance to Aussie poker style, but they usually bomb out early instead of lucking it.

You have not mentioned the the players from Canadia.

Apparently Canadians are SCUM. I read that somewhere, can't remember where though although it was definitely online, so it must be true.

In my somewhat limited experience they have similar levels of aggression to their near neighbours (and our ex colonists) but are much more polite when they slag you off for beating them on the river.

wish countries could not be seen, because now thanks to the scum of the countries I've had the displeasure of playing against I am a racist. I did support two kids in South America that I canceled because of born into money 3rd world scum bags. yeah yeah yeah I know they didn't do anything but I don't really care tell you the truth if I had access to nukes or better yet chemical weapons(because they would suffer more) there would only be 20 countries left. so the next time you decide to act like( for lack of a better word that won't get me banned) and inbred douche bag. Remember there's a real person on the other side that is not gonna give two flying f**ks next time you have a natural disaster, plague, war or 95% of your country is starving because your father was a corrupt d**k. As for the last one think it don't affect you cause you have money ? Whats gonna happen when there is no food or water except for the 5% in five- ten years. I can only imagine a razor raping in your over privileged butt will be the best of it.
Anyways to real players best of luck, to the idiots like I said you f**ked yourselves deal with it.

HAHA great rant. I'm assuming you have been bummed out of big pots by total imbeciles as well.

Australia wouldn't exist right now if I had a nuke button...

I really do hope we are all different. If we were all the same it would be a very boring world.

For example, I would like to think that I wouldn't extrapolate a bad outcome in a game into a dislike for a whole country or a socio-economic division of the whole world.

The irony of someone by the alias Calmplay posting in here is expertly timed Worship
