not especially interesting, but about 15 hours into a 20 hour session, i develop a tendency to fold my cards off the table--not intentionally, but i think that about 15 hours after i arrive, the air currents in the brantford poker room get wild and messed up due to my huge stacks of chips and start blowing my folded cards onto the floor. this causes a half-setup change, for which i usually say "****, sorry man," and get a warning about swearing.and it's not really embarrasing, but once i almost got in a fight at brantford.all my big pairs had been getting cracked all night, so when i picked up QQ in mp, raised, and two ******* guys in the CO and button called, i knew an ace was flopping. sure enough, the flop came AKx, and a little frustrated, i tapped my cards on the table. apparently the guy next to me tried to see them, and the douchebag on the button said, "kid, i'm gonna do you a favor. that hand is exposed. show it to everyone."me: what?douche: you showed that guy your cards, now you have to show everyone. i'm really doing you a favor here, kid.me: if he saw them, sorry, but i didn't show them to him.dealer: i didn't see anything.douche: no, that hand is exposed. floor!me: whatever, i'm betting the flop, you're calling, and then i'm check/folding the turn to your Ax anyway. [flips up qq]douche proceeds to check down the hand with his buddy to his right, repeating over and over about how he's doing me a favor and how he's saving me money from making mistakes like that in the future.me: oh, sorry, my mistake, i thought you were being an asshole, not doing me a favor.[CO proudly flips up a3o for the (not so) stunning victory. button mucks]douche #2: yeah, kid. let that be a lesson to you. don't show your hand to other players.me: what? i can't hear you very well over my huge stack of chips. (i did have about 2k in front of me at a 10/20 table, after all)[dealer giggles, then stops herself][douches #1 and #2 glare at me]douches, nearly in unison: "i'm not playing at this table anymore" [exeunt, one of them literally punches me in the shoulder on the way out, telling me that "he'll be outside waiting if i want to settle this." i don't. he's big and dumb, and i'm little.]that was probably as close as i've come to losing my cool at a live game. i apologized to the dealer and gave her 20 bucks.that's kind of my favorite poker experience, though, in retrospect.
If there are two things LHE players like, they are weed and pornography. The third would be kittens. LHE does not appear on the list.
