When i was in vegas -- about a month ago -- I sat down at a pretty live 4/8 game.I was kind of in a shitty mood, but sat anyway.There was an older Vietnamese guy sitting to my left, that was totaly dominating the table, and being a severe loud mouth and extremely cocky the whole time.he would raise befoer looking at his hand, reraise blind etc...and often times turn over some huge hands when others didn't believe him. His game was working perfectly, as it was throwing everyone else off, can't fault him there.some things really started to irritate me, so i started playing table cop. You can tell me if im wrong to call these things out.1. he would look at his cards and then lay them down well over the "line" on the table. I called him out on this one, saying, "shouldn't that be a muck, his cards are layed face down over the line"dealer corrected him -- he just made some stupid comment, "ohh! i crazy guy, me bad boy tran~!"2. He would often times come over the line to call a bet, with a hand full of chips. I called the dealer on this one, saying shouldn't that be a raise as he has enough chips over hte line to show a raise.dealer agree'd and made him raise -- once again, some stupid comment.3. he had some friends standing behind him, being just as annoying, "oh you so good, you like poker pro, good time." Well often times he would pick his hand up off the table and show the group behind him saying, "oh i win this hand, i got best hand -- should i raise? yea i raise all times!!"I asked the dealer if it was right that the rest of the table should have to play against a whole team -- dealer said, it wasn't against the rules to show your hand to the rail. wierd..ok..4. He often would drop cards while doing his show his friends his hand trick, a few times the cards would flip into my stack, or even once flipped into my lap. the time it flipped into my lap, he was ina huge pot 4 way on the river and showed his supposed nuts to his buddies, and his card dropped into my lap.I told the dealer it should be a dead hand as the cards left the table -- dealer killed his hand, hahaha...What do you guys think about this...i found this dude extremely annoying, which i guess was his "game" but should i have been such a dick about it? I think the main reason i was being so bitchy is because just previously i was knocked out of a tournment after showing a card before the dealer called for the hands to show down. i went all in and the guy said what i thought to be "take it" and i flashed my ace to show the nut flush. dealer killed my hand and shoved the pot to the guy...ugh...anyway...yea thats the story.
