Playing Nice online....

There are some things, that just need to be re-visited from time to time... like Poker etiquette! Since I play Texas Holdem Poker at several online rooms I see the same things in people.....

Whether or not you play like a champion, you can act like a champion.

Treat others as you would like to be treated. There is no point in being rude!

Do not harass or intimidate other players at the table.

Do not criticize your opponents' play. Not everyone has the same understanding of the game, and it is easy to take exception to how someone else plays. REMEMBER, it is their hand to play as THEY see fit, EVEN if it is NOT the correct play!

Foul or offensive language in chat is not tolerated.

Do not type in capital letters as it appears you are shouting.

As we all know, poker is sometimes frustrating. Bad beats are a part of the game, and they seem to happen more in online play. When they happen to you, take them in stride. Try chatting "Nice Catch" or "Nice Hand" to your opponent OR don’t make a comment at all. You can say what you really feel out loud, just don’t type it!
