Connecting in Poker Rooms: How to Share Your Success with Poker Pals
Using your live chat feature to distribute the class poker once held, while promoting your username for good - not evil. Written by May Alexander
In the same vain, that communication has transferred to online poker rooms with different sites exploring live chat at the tables, which players can usually turn on or off based on their preference. This provides an exceptional tool that allows players to say, “Hey...Nice hand (insert username here)!” Chances are, the more you play online, the more the other players know about your level of play. Much like a physical table provides the tells and mannerisms of those involved, online poker is not necessarily as anonymous as one might think, and here’s why.
Each time you bluff your way through a hand by going “all in” or you wait around to get a flush on the river, other players are going to know it. This is where the communication tool comes in handy. It is not necessarily to strike up a conversation or help other players at the table recognize an exceptionally bullying player, but to say, “I got you.” Since players cannot see each other’s faces, they can familiarize themselves with usernames and keep an eye on the guy or girl who burned them last time, when the offender should have been out of the hand after the flop.
Keep in mind that poker is something that most people, like you, who participate in online forums love too and being insulting is never necessary. However, it is perfectly okay to enjoy what technology brings to the table by saying hello to the table when you arrive, and wishing everyone a great game. At the end of the day, or tournament, your username will also be remembered by those involved, so deliver the class you would like to see from others.
