  • WTF Know it Alls

    So I play my first Premier League event today, and decide to play a little unorthodox with a small bet with J 7 off suit. I beat some guy with a pair of 7's and he then spends the next 20 minutes telling me off for being a fish, and telling me that I played wrong.

    Does anyone else get knowitalls on their table acting like they are superior to every one else? Or am I in the wrong and should I play by the book every single time so every opponent can read me and beat me?

    Or should I simply just put chat on silent in these tourneys so morons cannot preach to me about how perfect they are....

    I would be lying if I haven't been rude at a table but it was along time ago. It doesn't matter if you play it right or wrong. There is never an excuse for bad manners. The thing I just come to realise is that if a player does play a hand wrong then great....that's what I want him to do....I'm there to win and that will help me so why be rude?
    Just ignore players like this, don't even get involved in an argument. In fact concentrate all your strength on spotting their weakness and think of ways to finish them off by taking all their money

      Play however you want, if it gets you up in the leader boards then more power to you. Disabling player chat is an option if they get on your nerves.

        This can be good news in 2 ways.
        a) villain is paying more attention to perceived bad play from your part than in playing good poker himself. this means he will make more mistakes which is +EV for you
        b) sometimes when this happens villain will target you specifically and make spite-calls and make dubious moves to "outplay" you. This can be hugely +EV if you can take advantage.

          Hmmmmm, 291/336.....
          looks to me like your gonna have fun in the Premier playing J7o.(which is just fine with everyone else BTW). They make a note or their HUD makes an entry & now they know your range in that situation.
          All the other stuff is just nonsense
          there are many fools without brains playing poker
          Some Premier players play SOOOOO LAG they constantly get harrassed,
          When u know a player is just spewing, block their chat
          Good Luck

            291st was moreso because I had to have dinner so just went all in with KJ off suit knowing it was the first tourney of the month so I could recoup the points when I could relax in a tournament more like the one I am playing now.

            Thanks for all the advice, if someone is bothering me from now on I will block their chat messages and let them talk to a brick wall and put off nobody but themselves

            PS I hope many people make notes on me, my play is very erratic at times, Jekyll and Hyde kind of stuff, so if someone has me pegged as a loose cannon on one of my good days they will soon find out I am not
