Are there friends in poker?

Post by alex weber on Sun May 29, 2011 9:02 am


Are there friends in poker?
I ask this cos I have played on a small poker site for a few years now and I play there cos I know most of the players on there and

our-brands

as we play we have a chat and a laugh.
Anyhow tonight I sucked out on a player I have played against for years and he started saying I didnt know how to play poker and

was just the same as most players on this site, this is a player I always say HI to and GL, NH etc.
I was shocked and was playing just after this and I told the players on the table what had happened and said that I thought that

player "X" who had abused me, was a friend, and a player I know said "is there really any friends in poker?"
I said to him that of course I want to win money but I dont consider the players I play against as enemies, win or lose I aint

gonna hate them, but this got me thinking is there really friends in poker?
I like to think yes, I play in tourneys against CC members and win or lose I still consider them friends, I cant hate someone cos

I'v win or lose a hand of poker.
I dont think a place like CC would exist if there wasnt such a thing as friends in poker, In the CC freerolls or the CC league of

course I always want to win but I aint gonna dislike someone cos they beat me or I beat them.
I would go so far as to say if you had to "dislike" someone to play poker against them I would pack up playing, poker to me as to

everyone who plays is about winning money , but it is also about enjoying myself and if I enjoy chatting with people and over the

months get to consider them friends am I wrong?

Your not wrong at all. Keep playing and enjoying poker. Don't let one incident change your enjoyment when playing poker. Okay, you sucked out in a hand. It doesn't mean you played badly, just got lucky. The chances are that bad beats WILL happen...it's just a matter of when they do. So don't let someone who had sour grapes about being hit with a bad beat ruin your day. You will be the victim of many bad beats over time... they will usually even out in the long run. If you did play the hand horribly and sucked out and won it... hey.. it happens. Play your best, enjoy the game, and have fun. If you can't have fun playing poker, even a serious player, there is no need to start playing at all IMO.
