Very good, some of it reminded me of the changes I have personally seen in the UK as regard to live poker over the years.
Years ago, around the start of internet poker, I would go and play tournaments at my local casino. Everyone was very friendly, if you made some sort of etiquette error they would laugh and joke with you about it, all nice stuff and you felt like you wanted to have another try next week, a call of "good poker!" and a hearty slap on the back as you left the table.
These guys were all normal everyday people, all doing the same thing as me. Or so I thought! What I learned years later is that my local casino was regarded by many as the main poker venue in the UK, and it was not unusual for Devilfish himself to sit playing there.
These days, if I bother going it is totally different. Everyone moaning and complaining. Most people walk out thinking why did I even bother? The result is live poker in that place is nothing compared to what it was, although I suppose at least the final tables come to me more often. It was just more fun to lose to a nice bunch of blokes than it is to win against shouting moaners and complainers that have nothing nice to say to each other.
Pure and simple, complaining and arguments wreck the game over the long term.
Damn! I just realised, I am complaining lol!
Good stuff. The first 20min were quiet slow but if u keep watching there are some fine advice/ideas later on.
I think we need a new word for donk-bet. "Leading into the raiser" is too long. And "donk" is a judging/negative word like Tommy says. Could someone with English skillz please figure something out?
