Only bad etiquette would be shit talking in a friendly game or slow rolling the absolute nuts for suspense purposes. Betting patterns are all fair game, I've made loose aggressive friends hang themselves and sit on the rails at my home game.If playing against a very aggressive player that consistently over bets the river (all-in or huge bet on the river), do you consider setting a trap bad etiquette?
Example: Limp call several hands (maybe more then you might normally play) and fold against the river bet, to set up when/if you hit the flop/make your hand and then slow play it knowing the guy will push on the river.
I personally feel like that’s poker, nothing wrong with it. But have read that some people would consider that bad etiquette..?
And GO -
