Default Re: Chopping etiquette

There are obviously pros and cons to anything.

Pissing your opponent off is not necessarily a bad or a good thing.

Your opponents playing tighter against you is not necessarily a bad or a good thing.

An added andvantage of not chopping is that if your opponent is a 'chopper', he probably has little hu experience, so this can be exploited.

You obviously haven't read any of Slantsky's books. If you like pissing off your oppenents, I hope you never sit at my table. Not because you are a "better" player, but because you scare the fish away. Let me guess, you wear sunglasses and do chip tricks too?

I rarely if ever play at the casino because its very inefficient to do so with online poker and 400 hands an hour.
I am a clutz and can't do chip tricks.
And I don't believe in reading Sklansky or a lot of poker books because I believe they can only hurt my game.

I don't talk that much online but I generally noticed that the pissed players are usually easier to win off than the composed players.

Why do people even get pissed off if you don't want to chop? I don't play live so I don't get why this is a problem. You'd think fish would love to play HU so they can LAG it up. Where am I going wrong here?

In the casino (where at 3/6 there's a really good chance they loose-passive-suck) they stop "having fun" sooner and take their money home sooner. I like the idea of creating a fun atmosphere where people can leave thinking:

"Hey...I'd have spent that much taking my wife out to dinner and to a show. So no big deal. I'll be back."

I agree with this 100%.

My last casino experience was playing some 3/6 at a horrible table. I was doing chip tricks, I was outplaying everybody and showing, but we were all having a great time. They had no problem giving me money, and even talking about it, because they were having a good time. Doing something like not chopping is completely risking the fun atmosphere of the table and could possibly tighten everybody up or cause them to leave. Not worth it IMO.

However, when I play live I am doing it for fun, and when I play online I am doing it for money...
