Re: Are you called a fish?
 
Yeah, I got called a fish at a 1/2 NL the other day when I tried to bluff a guy who was obviously chasing the hell out of a flush when, doink, a third card came up on the river. I had been plucking apart the table until then. Then I called a mini-raise that had been called around the table with 42o from the BB, hit a full house, and won all my $$ back. Got called a fish again. What can you do? Not all of us are going to sit around and wait for the sets and straights to come. [censored] them. [censored] them in the ear.

I think that the real question should be how many fish don't know they are fish? What percentage of them flap and flop around on the felt waiting to be stabbed by some mighty fine LAG and TAG play? How many people still think that a "fish" is a LAG? How many LAGs would ever want such deception to ever change? Am I a fish?

I also sometimes tell people hearts are the suit most likely to hit a flop that's why I always play suited hearts no matter what.

That's priceless (and I'll bet it works!)

So thats why I always miss with spades. Kicking myself right now, and only playing hearts. Thanks for the tip buddy. Gee you sure a swell guy. [img]/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

Apparently I'm a real big fish.

Yup, once a day probably. Very profitable.

Do any of you guys do intentional things to look like a fish, or make big image plays when you sit down? I've always thought about intentionally losing the first pot in a ridiculous way to make the table think I'm a moron (or making a huge bluff with junk and showing it). I wonder if you could make back enough later to make it worthwhile.

I have a leak where when I first sit at a table I make huge bluffs, sometimes they work, sometimes they don't. I wonder how -EV this leak is sometimes though for my image... maybe +EV?

A good one is when you've been jamming at someone and constantly stealing his blinds, and he bursts out, "keep on doing that you idiot, I'll get you eventually". Obviously, nine out of ten times they get frustrated and push with some sort of crap like top pair Tens, ace kicker. It's priceless.

Another one is when you raise some limpers with a hand like 67 and flop the straight, get all in vs. some sort of suited K with the flush obviously hitting on the river, and then have to hear the whole table going, "that's what you get for playing those crappy hands!"
