Some psychological warfare has started to be employed at one of the tables. Without naming names, some friction can be felt between a couple of the competitors who are circling the felt at table 24.
Following a hand, where one player went all in, another called, and a third competitor folded, a debate ensued. The player who called, questioned why his opponent, who showed one of his two hole cards, folded. “You were holding a king, and you folded!” There was a tinge of exasperation in his voice. He looked to the player to his left, “Would you have done that?”
Then he directed his gaze back at the player who mucked: “It makes no sense!”
The player who folded, wanting nothing to do with his opponent’s gamesmanship, smiled coldly. “I don’t want to talk about it.”
“You could have shoved!” The player who initiated the banter refused to let up, even though it was clear that a king, alone, wouldn’t have won the hand.
The player who folded, rolled his eyes, and shook his head dismissively, not wanting to engage in any sort of debate about his poker skills or reasoning.
