Don’t say SURRENDER!

I got into argument with two clowns at the Hilton LV because I kept surrendering when called for. They thought that was not a manly thing to do, and that it was also screwing up their cards. I had to tell of both of them that I absolutely did not want to hear any commentary from them about my play. I had to get quite adamant about it to shut them up.

Funny thing was, I had misread the surrender table in the KO book and I was not even surrendering every hand I should. Not only that, was using a basic strategy table for dealer stays on soft 17! So there were even more surrender plays I missed, such as 17 or two 8s against an Ace!

I guess if I ever play there again with either of those guys there might be a brawl—LOL. It’s funny how people like to blame others for their own bad play. The KO book has a complicated “proof” of how bad play does not affect anything. It only affects you if you let it. We tend to remember the times someone messes up that hurt us, not the times they save the table. Do yourself a favor, ignore the bad play of others! It is so commonplace anyway

Ha Ha, this is common scene at most of casinos. Newbies keep on visiting casinos and after a couple of successful hands they start feeling like sitting on 7th heaven. Don’t worry, you did the right thing!

There are so many players who think they own the casino because they visit often. I don’t even listen to people who start complaining about how I am playing. If they don’t like the way I am playing my hands then there are other tables and they are more than welcome to switch tables. I am there to have fun and to try and make a little money not to argue with people.

I agree you did the right thing - don’t let other people bully you into doing something - it’s your money at the end of the day.

Oh man, I was nervous as heck at my first hand in a casino - and it was a small, not well known one too! Still, it’s nerve racking! Good job not being pressured into it; you did the right thing.

Good call in my opinion. Those guys probably had horrible hands anyway and were trying to pressure you into loosing. Good for you.

This kind of things often happen. My suggestion is to watch a couple of games and play there only if you find dealer and members to be suitable.

Well gambling is a game of luck & dare. I have observed that most of the gamblers are more or less superstitious and hence this kind of things often happens. Once I went to a casino and went to a BJ table and before I sat another player asked me to remove my shoes as he thought it could make him loose! Crazy Guy.

That’s the strangest thing I’ve ever heard. How could someone loose if other player has wore shoes? If someone would ask me to do so, I would never hear him and If required I would also complain about it to the casino authorities.

This kind of things often happen. I usually play for fun and not for winning. So at all costs I try to maintain my mood. If I find similar guy on my table, the first thing I would do is change the table! Simple.

I completely agree with rogue. There’s no point in sharing table with crazy people who don’t play game in the right manner! They would not only loose their money but also your concentration and mood would be hurt.
