There was a great response to last week’s question “what is the most expensive item you have destroyed in a tilt induced rage?” and I read your comments with various degrees of humour, comfort and downright incredulity! The cost must have run into thousands.
So staying on the topic of tilt, I have a similar sort of question for this week: what is the most annoying comment a player says in the chat box?
In a book I was reading the other day I came across a list of 17 things the author says could make even a solid player become what he calls a “mental game fish”. For example if they believe they are cursed, or if they believe it is possible to “own a player’s soul” etc. Very last on the list he said a player who says “One time!” Well I’ve never had anyone say that to me. Perhaps it’s an American thing, but clearly it is something he finds massively annoying.
So I thought I’d ask you what the most irritating thing it is that a player says during a game to you. I can tell you that with me it is never the bad language. Without a doubt mine is when a player wins a pot after getting lucky and says “ty” after you actually played the hand fine. Drives me nuts that does! Anyway I’ve thought of a few options but the alternatives are endless so I’ve likely not included the one that vexes you the most. Feel free to select “something else” and share it in the comments section.
