Default Re: Am I a Nit?

Definition of a nit:

Letting a homeless guy put you on tilt enough that you call him down with Q high.

if you're a nit, you will never understand why, so there's no point explaining it to you.

And still noone can give me a definition other than to say you are one. Is being a nit about attitude, poor play, ego? What skills do I need to work on in order to be the best nit I can be?

Also, what is the diffrence between a nit and a donk? Maybe I am a donk too???

i would say you're more of a dipsh*t than a nit or a donk. but i haven't seen you play poker so i'm speaking only from experience.

I love working people up into a frenzy enough to call me names over nothing. You take yourself way to seriously. Now that I have control of your emotions go make me a sandwich.

If you have to ask the question...

You probably are. Remind me to kick you in the nuts next time you are in town. [img]/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Al, Tracker is in town at all times. So let the nut kicking begin.

In some countries, it's consider an honor to be kicked in the nuts by Capone. [img]/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Ok, ok, enough fooling around.

A nit is a non-useful idiot troll. They tend to ruin the game by backseat dealing, being generalized jerks, and of course NIT-picking every little thing, particularly when it's to their advantage to do so. They also rarely do much for the action at the table, more likely killing it than adding to it. A nit may or may not be a winning player, but if they are, it's usually not by much.

"Donk" is much different. A donk is just a person who is playing badly at the time, whether they're usually a shark or a minnow. Donk was adapted in the modern age from the more ancient latin term [img]/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] "magoo," which is a person who can't even read their own cards, let alone the board. Both donk and magoo can be adapted into nouns, pronouns, verbs, adverbs, adjectives, and probably, if you're redneck enough, prepositions that you could end a sentence with nine of.

Bonus-

If players were placing illegal sidebets with people on rail about the color of the flop for each hand, would you feel bothered and call the floor/dealer to do something?

[/ QUOTE ]

No, wouldn't care. Would a nit?

[/ QUOTE ]
Awesome.

well how old are you and how long have you been playing live 1/2 poker without moving up? over a year?

[/ QUOTE ]

Thirty. Yes. Why do I need to move up?

[ QUOTE ]
do you limp AK or QQ in early position?

[/ QUOTE ]

AK, limp, this hand sucks. QQ, raise it up.

[ QUOTE ]
do you pick on people who are younger and better looking than yourself merely because they have been more successful in their shorter poker careers?

[/ QUOTE ]

Not at all. I pick on people who are better than me at things . I do this, because I encounter these people everyday.

If I pass judgement on someone and am wrong, so be it. I have been wrong before. There are plenty of good, young, poker players. There are plenty of pretenders too.

Still didn't give me a definition.
