      Not me -- that's the only way I can win 'em :coolface:

      What REALLY annoys me is that when I sit down to play there are rarely any tables. What few there are are full of regs, with several more on the waiting list.

      Poker room software should detect that there are 6 people waiting ( or 9 if FR) and create a new table, and send all waiting players a pop-up saying, "Hey, we just created table XYZ just like the one you're waiting for, and there are players waiting!"

      Good for them, good for me.

      Great thread idea!

      I agree to this, but also, it annoys me when players go and insult the bad players at the table, scaring them away. And lso, regs who have robot mode on and don't talk back to please the recreational players, making the game more and more boring mouse clicking.

      Oh good, a rant game; here we go then...

      Software developers who don't give a shit about players,
      stupidly placed annoying popups,
      too short a time bank.
      Losing to bad regs,
      losing to fish,
      losing to whales,
      just losing.
      People who keep telling me I'm a fish, shut up, I know I'm a fish.
      Me, being a fish, calling others fish
      Bankroll getting frozen for no logical reason whatsoever.
      Having to contact 24/7 CS for same but nobody replies for days.
      Cashouts taking 12 years, wtf is that all about!
      Idiot regs berating recreational players so they leave.
      People who stack me because they don't fold when I say they should.
      People who say to me all need is to put in some hard work to be a great player, when they know full well I'm a lazy git.
      Being a lazy git so I don't put in enough work...

      ..I'll be back... :spade: :heart: :diamond: :club:

      People complaining about all other things when the only thing they can change is themselves and their perception of things. There isn't much point in wasting time on something you don't have control of, but it makes a lot of sense to work on the things that you can change - yourself.

      You can't take the cards out of the hand of the dealer and rib them to pieces when you get sucked out and the start crying

      Edit: You can actually cry in front of the computer, trust me :(

      One thing that annoys me are when people complain about players sitting out, there was a recent case on one site that offered a decent daily freeroll. As with most freerolls there was a lot of players sitting out, and people end up complaining about them so much the sites cancel them! It baffles me why anyone would complain about a stack of chips at the table that wont even play AA.

      Id give up half my manhood to be able to play online poker again. You boys don't know how lucky you are to be able to play online poker. Here in the US, its only allowed in 3 states right now, and mine is not one of them unfortunately. Recently I've been forced to play live games with a bunch of bow-tied frizzled-haired clowns with Gonzo noses.

      Playing with friends is more fun.
      They are much worse than online players plus no rake.
