Can be anything Poker related, how someone acts, rulings, etiquette, strategy related.

I play with a group of people who just starting playing PLO within the last year and they refer to it as Omaha.


I dont know why, but it tilts the ever-living shit out of me when people refer to PLO as Omaha

That is all

People who knock over MY chip stack. No etiquette in general.

People who loudly and repetitively rail on and on about how big a donkey play another player made long after the hand is over. Doubly so because I've seen jackasses do this when the "donkey" in question actually made the right play and they just don't understand it.

i can't say that it tilts me necessarily, but i do all i can to dissuade people from berating the dealer even if he/she is terrible (which they often are).

Mouth noises, chewing with you mouth open, gnawing on a chicken bone for 20 minutes, mouth noises, never knowing when it is your turn, playing games and watching tv at the same time...and mouth noises.

(all of which happened at one of the last poker games I was at....)

From recent experience: people who bet flop and turn, then river the nuts with a only a PSB behind and check to me, causing me to bet 2/3 pot with the near-nuts and snap when they ship it in, then act like they made some kind of great f***ing play. No donk, but I do appreciate you giving half of my calling range the opportunity to check behind. (yeah that happened twice in one hour the other night - different players...)

Also, anytime I make the mistake of checking to see if there might be any cool poker-related shit on CL, I get uber-tilted. :rolleyes:

the group for my primary game is made up of mostly older guys and they refer to O8 as simply omaha. they get confused anytime i refer to it as O8.

On a related note . . . It bothers me when people refer to NLHE as No Limit. No Limit what? You know, No Limit.

Sigh!

I had a guy once refer to it as "Texas." "You play Texas at your game, right?"

"Huh?"

"Texas. Y'all play Texas?"

"Hold'em? Uh, yeah."

Doesn't tilt me. What pisses me off is having to tell the same person every fucking time that its their turn to act, post, ect....
Got this guy in my league. Really nice guy too but the action pauses EVERY single time it gets to him.

1. Seeing my minty fresh GVCs great slammed into the pot on a hardwood table... Not once, but many times...
2. Host (not me) insisting on using dice chips as quarters mixed with with minty casino chips... Same tournament...

... I've so become a chip snob... Forgive me.

repeatedly getting kicked in the balls sends me on tilt

Repeatedly? How long do you stand there before it sends you on tilt? Is twice okay, or is that crossing the line?

I'm guessing that's not a problem with the guy who's been kicking you in the balls...

Questions
1. Why are your minty fresh GVCs on a hardwood table to begin with? - that would tilt me.
2. See question #1

People that are super slow to act and go into the tank over very small decisions. Related to that people who always need to be reminded when it is their turn.

oh... tilting not pet peeve? oops

ok then thats easy - losing flips, getting sucked out on, pizza not getting here on time when I am super hungry and trying to use a cheat meal, losing flips again, losing 6 buy ins in a row, losing flips, not hitting my 4 outer or someone hitting their 4 outer, everyone folding to my AA raise UTG and then also losing flips.
