View Full Version : I thought this was a friendly game

I’m in the BB and it gets folded to the SB (this is the SB 2nd or 3rd hand). I look toward the SB and say ‘do you want to chop?” He says “no play”. I look at my hole cards and see AsKs. I respond, “OK I raise then”. He gives me a nasty look and says, “I thought this was a friendly game”

The flop is K, rag, rag the turn and river are both rags. I bet all the way and he calls all bets. I show my cards, he mucks and continues to mumble crap about my betting into him. I simply said to him “I asked you to chop”. He continues to play grumpy as can be.

What does he expect? He said play!

the low limit crowd really has some people with poor social skills.

Pretty funny. I might have said something like,"Yeah, I chop because the BB is my lucky position. I never lose when I'm the BB and I feel guilty about it so I chop. Sorry you didn't know." But I'd probably just laugh to myself.

I was sitting next to this kid for a while, and he asked the guy to his left to chop with him. He said no, so he said "Alright, then I raise." The flop came whatever, bet call. Turn: bet, raise, re-raise, call. River: bet, raise . . .he looks at his cards, he shows them to me (63o) and he says, "That was smart, huh. . ."

In other words, when someone says they don't chop, it's not a good idea to "show them what happens when you don't chop with ___." Well, maybe it's not a bad idea against some people.
