this isn't true. A donkey is a separate species from a horse and a donkey and an ass are the same thing. A cross between a horse and a donkey/ass is a mule. Mules cannot breed themselves.

In poker terms a donkey is a bad player or so I believe.

I just know one thing:

You can lead a horse to water.. but a DONKEY will chase you to the river.

I hate donkeys!! I know that I should love them because they are the ones who give us the money with their stupid calls. But i dont know why, but donkeys always get lucky against me with their stupid hands. The river card always kills me!

Sometimes people are called donkeys when they take the pot by the weak players who simply can't stand that they lost. Especially when they are busted from SnG or a MTT. If somebody calls other player a donkey in most cases it doesn't mean too much. Blink

"trying" being the operative word. How is that funny? I was just trying to answer the question.

I thought donkeys or donks at the poker table were just the bad players in general. So players who call to catch one card outer draws is an example but not a definition. but I maybe wrong. players who call every card to the river seems to be a plausible explanation.

Yes it is always against you. If they call you 1000 times when you are 70% favorite I am sure you will go bankrupt, because they are donkeys so they are favorite to win even against all odds.

If you are not able to stand donkeys' luck, you are not able to be a profitable player.
True you get more bad beats/suck outs against them, but when you have the winning hand they will pay you enough, usually more, to compensate the beats.

Saying "I always lose my hands to donkey" is probably equivalent to say "Hey, I am a donkey too!".

When you go all in with nuts, is the one who wins hand at river with j9 off Aww crap! Aww crap!
In a different result is the one you want to kill when river card is shown Blink

It's just your imagination that donks always win. It's just that the bad beats sting so much they leave a better impression, you will remember the times your two pair was drawn out on by a flush draw as a terrible injustice, but when your flush draw hits it's just fair.

That's interesting. I just checked and a male mule has never reproduced and female mule very rarely reproduces...Maybe one day there would be a miracle male mule that can.. lol.

The expression is actually 'If you can't spot the fish at the table, then it's probably you' - Not donkey.

A fish is a weak player who chases every hand down to the river and often gets lucky for their bad play.

A Donkey is much more aggressive, they usually know they're playing bad but don't care, they push and shove with bad cards all the time and also hit a lot.

Best advice: never be either one, as they end up losing more than they ever win in the long run. They get lucky here and there but lose badly at most tables. Especially when good players spot what they're at early.

Remember, never tap the aquarium, if you spot a big fishy player, don't scare them off by highlighting it at the table. Use it to your advantage and take all their money with good hands first! Cool
