All kinds of people play poker in casinos and card rooms – tall and short, fat and thin, young (must be over 21; 18 in Indian casinos) and old. You name it, they are there. And, of course, there are idiots too – to use Phil Hellmuth’s description of a player who should have folded his arms, but instead stayed on and beat him.
There is one person (I hesitate to call him a boy) who goes to my favorite casino almost every time. At least once in a session he violently and mercilessly cursed at an opponent whose game he disagreed with. “You are a terrible player,” he shouted above his voice. “You have to learn to play! Read a poker book. And then, when an opponent lifted him in the river, he scowled at him angrily. “Why did you raise me? Just the two of us! “For lack of a more descriptive term, I call him Mr. Ugly. It seems fitting to visit IntanQQ.
I must add, as long as I played at the same table as him, I have never seen Mr. Ugly leave a winner. There were times he was lucky and ahead – for a while; but soon the chips were gone and he bought another batch. This happens a lot.
There were times when he coughed uncontrollably. It happened to him quite often. (I noticed he was a heavy smoker, taking frequent breaks from games to go out to smoke a cigarette.) On one occasion, I administered cough medicine to relieve his strong coughing spell. Does he say “thank you” to me? Impossible. Instead, as she quickly grabbed the cough drops from my hand, she scowled and looked away as she unwrapped it and pushed it into her mouth. It’s Mr. Ugly.
I must admit, never again would I offer to him any assistance. In fact, I avoided communicating with him as much as possible, and didn’t pay attention when I was the subject of his harsh words. So far, I have never seen another player react to his terrible attitude. (Maybe it’s because she’s so big and overweight – or we just don’t value her.) I rarely see her attack a woman with offensive language – mostly men. Interesting. The only time I saw him smile was when he talked to a beautiful maid.
Now, don’t think I’m shying away from playing poker against him. I love it when he comes to our table, or is already sitting there when I join the game. While he won’t berate others for the way they play, he has to be one of the worst players I’ve ever seen. For one thing, he played nearly every hand that was dealt to him; so I know he’s played a lot of bad starting hands.
Anyone who consistently plays more than one in three beginner hands, is PokerPigeon, to use the words of my poker mentor, George “The Engineer” Epstein. And then he chased most of the hand up to the river. (“The hunter is a loser.” I once again quoted George.) I wondered: Does he know anything about the importance of entanglement?
Obviously, I have little respect or respect for Mr. Ugly. But I have to admit that I was delighted to see him on our table; I know I’ll win the chips – sooner or later. And he did make the game more interesting. Just don’t take it too seriously.
