  1. Angle Shooting King Ivan Košárko (CZ)

    Vysvetlivky: Na GPT Rozvadov GTD 200k na turne s nuts hádže z výšky chipy. Pred dopadom chipov v hodnote call hlási raise, po zavolaní Floormana skormútene hovorí, že sa pomýlil a tak nútene minraisuje… vyprovokujúc push od neštastníka s TPTK. Obohacuje túto zvrhlosť o slowroll showdownu! KKT par excellance! Vzápätí sa chváli z ktorého EPT turnaja to opajcol a úprimne sa raduje…Kartibožie mlyny ho pomelú ešte v ten deň…

    Angle-Shooting – Using unfair tactics.
    Usage: A poker player who uses various underhanded, unfair methods to take advantage of inexperienced opponents. The difference between an angle shooter and a cheat is only a matter of degree. What a cheat or thief does is patently against the rules; what an angle shooter does may be marginally legal, but it’s neither ethical nor gentlemanly. Nor is it in the spirit of the game. Unfortunately, poker is not a gentleman’s game. In addition to learning how to protect yourself against cheating players, you must learn to watch out for the angle shooters. See “Angle”.
    Angle: An action that isn’t against the rules, but still incorporates unfair tactics.
    Usage: A maneuver, usually on the border between legality and illegality (but usually clearly unethical), to take unfair advantage of another player. Extreme example: Some clubs consider putting fewer chips than required into the pot an uncompleted bet that is not valid until completed, and that, furthermore, can be removed until such time as sufficient chips are bet. (Fortunately, there aren’t many such clubs.) In such a club, you bet $100 and another player puts in $99. You show your cards, which have him beat. He says, “I put in only $99; I didn’t call your bet.” He withdraws the chips. Of course, if he had you beat, he would quietly take the whole pot. If someone pointed out at that juncture that he called only $99, he would probably say, “Oh, pardon me, just an oversight; I meant to call,” add the missing chip, and then drag the pot. All of that is part of an angle.
