Miss-click Ethics

      Greetings All-

      Just looking for some opinion on if I was right or wrong in this situation.

      Was playing deep stack NL .10/.20, picked up AA in 2nd position on full ring table raised to 80 cent. The button, an extremely loose player who'd already put two beats on me that day, min-raised me to 1.60 In my steamy mood i decided to move in not wanting to play post flop out of position that could litteraly have any 2 cards. He went in to the tank and finally called me. He showed 22 and failed to improve so I won the pot.
      All was grand until he started typing in the chat box how he'd miss clicked on call and that i should give the money back.

      I told him no for the following reasons:

      1. He'd already cracked my JJ with a loose all-in call with 44 so i felt 22 were in his range
      2. If he called and won he'd never have mentioned the miss-click I'm quite sure.
      Course he got abusive and said he'd report and kill me blah blah blah
      Just wanted ta know do people think I was right in this situation or was swayed by the fact he'd put a few beats on me?

      Thanks in advance

      Haha, how can you make sure that he really miss-clicked? He's just another maniac on tilt.

      Hi =)

      I wouldnt even need the info that he sucked out on you earlier..

      If he calls he calls, if it was missclick it was his problem and nobody is gonna take care about it ever. Of course theres no way he can report you or something :D I mean he can but nobody will care..

      So dont feel bad about this, he called and lost, its that simple. One day maybe you gonna misslick as well and nobody is gonna return your money to you =)

      A live game at a casino.

      Player says 'all in', put his chips in the middle and sees AA against his 22, board blanks he loses and says.. I'm sorry I meant to say 'fold' not 'all in' Can I have my chips back please?

      Can you imagine the rofls?

      You are way too nice for even thinking about it, but thanks for posting :s_biggrin:

      Hello elcowbert,

      He is probably the kind of guy that always thinks when having a small pocket "oh he could have AK and I might have coinflip" and then calls with 22. I don't believe his misclick story for one minute and especially since he still wins against your AA in a decent percentage of the times (where he will NEVER offer to give you your money back) I would never in such a case give this guy any credit for telling the truth.

      Best regards

      you can try the victory song to tilt him even more.

      btw . a pocket pair preflop is the nutz for the fish so I don't believe on misclicks.

      Mis-clicks are part of the online game.

      Unfortunately for your villian in this tale, s/he needs to learn to accept them and move on.

      And once someone starts suggesting death threats? How much was the pot? $25k and villian is gambling their house? Or $0.50 and villian's mother sent them to their room for talking back?

      In either case villians problem not yours.

      For me, either mute villian and get on with life or provide a bit of lip back and enjoy the entertainment. :s_grin:

      Would never give anyone their money back for any reason.
      They are aware of all risks involved when they play.

      The thread title almost made me laugh. I never considered poker to be an ethical game, and I would personally discourage any sportsmanship when playing. Being a LAG, I use any means necessary to put my opponent on tilt, including teasing, trash talk, blatant insults and verbal abuse. Not because I know the opponent or care about his feelings, I just want to win money off him. That's what I believe this game is all about. And if he gives me money by misclicking, that's like a shortcut to profit.

      If you want to keep any morals while playing poker, you may do so, but it will be in your own disadvantage.

      I mean if he had sucked you out he would've sent you those $40 back because well it was a missclick...

      lmao.. You really considered sending him his money back? and did you really have to reason with him? lmao???

      bottom line don't use the chatbox to talk to donks...

      No such thing as miss-click ethics.... it's not ethical from his side to claim that he miss-clicked. That's bullshit... never believe these guys...

      Next time ask for his password to his account so you can go in and deposit some money, if he falls for it go in and transfer all his money to your account.
