Online Poker Banter…

When playing online I cannot see the point of giving your rivals any information that they don’t need. Constantly you will see people typing ‘vnh’ – very nice hand or ‘nh’ – bice hand, some will even type ‘gg’ which I think means good game or good grief or even good god – who knows, I cant be bothered to find out.

To me all winning hands are good or nice and thats it. When you type nonsensical statements you get into a debate and that is one thing you do not want to do unless you want to unstabilise your opponent. If you want to unstabilise your opponent then it is a brilliant tactic unless you get caught out by your opponent.

So in essence keep the chatter to zero and do not get drawn into conversation that reveals your state of mind.
