hey all, so last night was Monday so we had our live game at hoodi's place. I ended up busting out but in the process my buddy really pissed me off, and no one seemed to understand why so I wanted to see if I'm the only one here. I had top pair, Kings, and my friend flips over one card, an Ace, and says "I have ace high," only to flip over the other card, revealing that he in fact had pocket Aces. Angry I can't be the only one that thinks this is rude, anyone wanna back me up on this? (i ended up throwing my chips at him once he showed his other ace, but I'll still be back for vengeance next week Evil )

No, your just a big baby who got upset because you lost.
You are friends, playing should be a laugh, he just teased you a little.(not to be done in a serious game with unknowns)
Now throwing your chips at him is very rude, and to be honest If I was playing wiith a bunch of people and one chucked chips at me he would end up with a fist in his face and not be invited back.
Knock him out hoodi Big Smile

I agree with B1gfoot. It was more of an over-reaction on your behalf. If this person was a friend you should just take it as a joke and move on. There is no need to throw your chips at him. If he wasn't a good friend or a friend of a friend you should make sure he is not invited again.

Whatever you do don't go next week with the thought of revenge otherwise this will affect your game and reduced your chance of getting your money back.

GL to you and all mobsters anyway.

well i did read his book, SuperNoob, so that would make sense. Blink

it's really not about losing in itself that i was upset about, it's that he did it. i can admit, i shouldn't have thrown my chips at him, but i think what he did was much ruder than what i did, and since I am a friend to him as well should have thought better than to do that, even though i seem to be the only one who thinks so. oh well, i'll get over it i guess.

Nobody likes it when they get their nose rubbed in it when they have lost a big pot, and although you should have kept your cool your buddy was also not being very cool. The best thing you can do is take what you have learned about his style of play and use it against him to win his money, over, and over, and over, and over, and.... right? Keep winning his cash and don't rub his nose in it, best revenge IMO. GL!

Have to agree that you might have overreacted a bit there m8. i mean, throwing your chips at your friend because he teased you?!? was probably just to wipe the smile on your face when you showed your KKs Big Smile

Since this was a game between friends, i really think he wanted to make a little joke and not trying to offend you as you think. probably under other circumstances you could consider this is a offend, lets say on a table where players don't know each other, but in a poker game between firends i'm sure he just wanted to make a joke.
As the other gusys stated above it was a bit rude from you to throw the chips at him, poker is all about controlling your emotions, it makes you improve your game overall and makes you be a better live poker player especially.
@lukasb, i don't think he had pocket kings since he said he had top pair, he had a king and another card, his friend got pocket aces. I think they went all in preflop, it's a common pocket aces strategy, i mean you see if the flop is dry in order to safely shove it all in Blink
