honestly sir, you're better than i am.....i would've lost it far sooner, probably at the floor when they dropped the ball. Seriously, i would've probably been calling the floor over every few minutes b/c of the shit going on. You should've jsut come to windsor
When you're right - you're right!(but my first visit to Windsor was sort of similar - they got better!)

Did saying anything help at all?And I don't think you were even close to out of line.
The table did settle a bit (after Loud Mouth Girl #1 quit complaining about me shutting her down) Even Chatty Guy admitted that the Dealer wasn't out of line and just doing his job.

i thought you were going to MCC anyway?
My buddy talked me into MGM Grand - He did "warn" me, but he'd never seen it get that bad before.

That sucks. I obviosly don't want everyone to take the game as seriously as most of us here do, but tables like that ruin the game for me. I'll often leave, even though i feel like I'm missing out on a profitable situation, but if I'm cranky I'm probably not playing my best anyway.I play live so infrequently, though, that I'm occasionally inclined to start goofing around and nutbarring that type of table. It's nice now and then to blow off some steam, and there's nothing better than the drunks thinking you're the crazy drunk one at the table. Btw, I think you were well within bounds for saying something, but I hope you left afterwards, since it doesn't sound like you were having fun or in the frame of mind to play optimally.
You're right of course. And I understand the "fun" aspect and completely agree that my definition of "fun" isn't going to be universal. Really, I tried to concentrate on just taking their mobneys, and had a decent night, but it just got overwhelming.I actually played OK. Bottom line: I'm not always going to be able to control my environment and it will often be sub-optimal and distracting/frustrating. If I want to continue to be a "winning player" I need to be sure I can tolerate a wide variety of situations - however if I am going to "enjoy" my limited Poker time, I'll also have to decide wisely in which Room I play.
