Is Tony G an Asshole?
I love this question from High Stakes Poker. Is Tony from the streets an asshole? I think MANY MANY poker players think that the game is WAR. In war anything goes. I think Tony is one of those guys who gets caught up in pissing people off to make them make mental mistakes. We have all been at the table with "that guy" and a lot of people will go gunning for someone who is being an asshole. Playing a different style than you normally would is -EV and so effective. However most people at the table believe that poker has a set of rules and etiquette that should be followed. I actually think less people every day follow these unspoken rules and poker has regressed into a bunch of spoiled kids calling each other names. What is your opinion? Is poker WAR or do we have room for civilized play? Is Tony G an Asshole or is he just trying to get an advantage over other players? Are his antics good or bad for poker? Do you give a fuck at all?
