this is the stuff i'm talking about.. why would you take the time to educate this person and everyone else at the table that you were ahead on the flop?

I kept quiet for a long time, but they constantly were berating me so I decided to get under their skin, I find it is a way to get people "gunning" for you which I believe is VERY +EV.

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.

You have this imposter fish thing down to an art form. If you said such things at my table I'd make a note that said FISH and give you unlimited action!

In all seriousness good gamblers invite people to gamble with them in +EV situations over many years by being honest, friendly, affable and minding their tongue.

Pretty much everytime I push allin with a draw I get called a fish. Especially funny once when I pushed allin with AQo on Qxx(all same suit as my A) just because I thought I had him, he flips over a flopped flush, and turn comes A, river Q. Man 2 people were all over me the rest of the night, I loved it.

I thought it was just me.
I never understood why people hated me,
ganging up, telling eachother to "take him out".

+EV though

I'm guilty of both. Not only do I sometimes get called a fish, though not as much, I do the pointing as well. I try not to, I swear, but some people just anoy me to no ends. They hit suckout after suckout and think they are playing great. My favorite is to call someone a "Fishtard". I know its bad etiquette and all and I have cut back a lot and keep my comments to myself, but sometimes I just can't resist.

Wow, Rob, I'm impressed. This is such a step up from your normal response of "raise pf." Holla.
