Dont mean to perpetuate stereotypes, but every single serious no limit player ive met in real life is kind of an *** clown. Mouth-breathing, shade-wearing, puts their hat on sideways with the stickers still on, challenge you to a heads up match if you look at them the wrong way - douchebaggery.Serious limit players tend to be nerdy or on a field trip from an old folks home.And given those broad generalizations, we can see why limit players appear to be more respectful of the game - they're mostly just less confrontational.
I don't know about nerdy ... howza about more mature? I say that as an add on to what you said as I don't neccessarily agree ... I've played with a lot of mature/respectful people at NL. I know what you're saying about young guys as there's a ton of 'em and they all play NL.As far as confrontational goes ... what's said above is correct but, a huge part of it, imo, is that with NL your entire stack is at risk every hand you play versus Limit is "just another bet". As a result NL is more stressful causing the confrontational aspect you speak of. Generally, Limit tables are a lot more fun to play,imo, as everyone seems to be more relaxed and sociable.
