Answer is: a.

or h. Other: I hope I keep playing this way also.

If your opponent is easy to get on tilt then throw something more at him or her. But do it in a way that will make everyone else at the table question your sanity. A free sugguestion follows:

Add a little Zen-like saying, for example; When the wind blows the grass bends, or say - What is the sound of one chip stacking?, etc. etc.

Hope this improves poker table etiquette and everyones game.
