Poker Etiquette?
« on: July 29, 2018, 11:29:47 am »
First time in my many years and thousands of poker games played that I've ever heard this...

Played in a casual Texas hold 'em neighborhood game last night, bourbon and $20 buy-in. Six players and the host and two other guys vote to not increase the blinds.   ::)  I don't want to rock the boat at this dude's house so I go along with the pussy rules. We basically play "merry-go-round" poker for 3-1/2 hours except one dude who bets on everything and goes out after his second buy-in. The rest of us are basically hanging around, waiting to take a shot. My hole cards have been shit all night though I manage to hit a couple of decent pots to give me a slight stack advantage. After four hours, we decide to go once more around the table, then cash out. I'm to the left of the big blind and the host is dealing. I get 7/9 suited, call the pot and one guy drops. Flop goes 2-6-8 unsuited, everybody checks. A K gets flipped on the turn, again, unsuited with the three flop cards so no flush is possible. Everybody checks again. The river card is a 5 of diamonds giving me a straight, blinds check to me, then I check to the dealer/host. This dude hasn't bet more than $2.00 worth of chips all night. He bets $5.00 so I know he probably has trip 5s. I proceed to push all-in. After he gives me a death stare, he counts his chips and pushes all of his chips in. I show him my straight, he shows his trip 5s and proceeds to lecture me on how check/raising is "bad etiquette in a "friendly" game. I was fvcking flabbergasted...I have never heard this before. The guy told me I will not be invited back to his house for future games. Good!  :lol

Anyone think check/raising is bad etiquette? I mean, it's fvcking poker for crying out loud.

Going home with someone else's money in your wallet isn't very nice either.

Hayta, I like you, but TL

Blinds not raised in cash game? Not pussy.
Not being able to check raise? Pussy.

Lol...Jeff said "friendly" and "death stare" about a poker game.  Sounds like said host has a passive/aggressive complex.  Or maybe herpes simplex. :popcorn

Poker is another activity that we can use less of on TV.  Unless it's being played in a smoky room with guys who might or might not be carrying concealed weapons.  Somewhat similar to "The World Series Of Dice" that Chappelle did.
