Five things that you shouldn’t do at a poker table

1: Trash-talking your opponent

This is a Tony G master piece. His “good-bye speech” to Ralph Perry will very likely stay as the worst public humiliation seen on a poker TV Show. It’s still very hard to understand how the Russian pro remained completely silent after nearly 3 minutes of : ” You are a terrible player” “You played that as bad as you can” ” Your career is finished” ” You are gone, gone gone !” ” You feel my power baby” “This is how you play ? You call with KJ ?”


 2 : Tilting

Just an ordinary drunk and angry guy on tilt, probably  after receiving an ugly bad beat. What is less common is how he decided to cashout his remaining stack .


3 : Drinking like a “Men”

With this new trend of healthy poker players eating only salads and drinking organic fruit juices, it’s always refreshing to see old school poker professionals who enjoy drinking beers even when playing a WSOP event. Just don’t spit all of it all over the table…


4 : All-In with Aces without your cards

It’s 100% guaranteed that she won’t forget  to protect her cards in future.


5 : Slowroll for fun the biggest “Mouth” of the poker table

Waiting before calling your opponent with the nuts is always extremely impolite. But if you could do it on TV and against a player famous for his trash-talking abilities, would you resist ?
