Aright, I was playing at Lady Luck Casino in SD, CA. I walked in and went to the 2/3NL table with about 160 (wanted to start low and work up). I was playing fairly aggressivly, grinding up to about 340 in about an hour or so. Made a dumb call, and was labeled after that a fish. Kept getting referred to as 'the dumb white boy' at the table by some guys. Well, after that, I went on a decent tear and busted 2 out of the three guys. I will give you the hands and such for each of these situationsSB: J8HH2 calls, I am BB, raised to 12 (I had only been raising this amount today)called by bothFlop comes Qh 8s JsBet 15, 1 callTurned 8dBet 30, 1 callRiver 10sChecked, he bet 40, pushed him in for an additional 85ish, he called.Now, before I continue, this was one of the three guys saying they were gonna bust me. 2 of the 3 were left because after the guy made a score of like 120 off me, he left after dropping another 100ish to the table. He was a tight player who didn't/couldn't shift gears. I looked and said 'do you have a boat?' He said 'no'I said in a cockish way 'well I do'I won the hand, but he was pissed I disrespected him. I told him it goes both ways, he tried to threaten me, I kinda let out a laugh after that. Afterward, I wondered if I was wrong for doing that. Conversation ended with 'I am not here to be your friend, I am here to take your money.' Ok, felt bad, but they kept talking trash, so now I am just waiting for the opportunity to bust them. Dealt A10sI am BBRaised to 20 to me (This table doesn't believe in the 3x or 4x raises, it's always completely random. Had a guy raise pre-flop, with $3 in the pot, to $55 for kicks.)3 calls, including me. Flop Ad3c10dI bet 25, 1 call (other guy who was calling me 'white boy' and saying a bunch of fun other things)turn AdI bet out 35, 1 callRiver 2dBefore I say this bet, the only reason I bet a bit high was because I had a read he would callbet $100He told me 'FU' and raised to $200, I immedialty said all inHe thought about it, tried to get me to tell him if I had him beat. I kept my mouth shut.He called in with like $150 more and flipped 1010Now, before I continue, let me tell you that after awhile of them talking (2 hours ago this took place), I finally looked and said I was going to bust them if they stayed in this game. So I flipped mine, looked at him and said "I told you I was gonna bust you". He got mad, walked out. I got a few laughs from some of the players there. Just a question. Should I have just taken it and not stooped to their level, or was I slightly ok with talking trash after I busted them? I am kinda confused on the matter. I try to keep professionalism if I win or lose, and I never yell at anyone for making a move I don't agree with or get flustered in front of anyone. This time, though, them judging me because they can't understand the positives of my live game styles kinda made it seem like they were trying to take a shot at my intelligence. Thanks for reading this.
