If you have a bowl of chips at home, it better be an aluminum bowl, because that is what you want to have. The bowl itself doesn’t need to be a certain size, because that is not what it is for. You are not going to spill those chips, no matter what happens. Still, if you have them in a bowl, they are easier to toss from the table or the floor.
If you have a spill, you want to make sure that you either front the chips that are on the floor, or away from the table. You do not want to spill the chips all over the place. If you can move the chips to a Different Spot, then you are going to be all better. Chips that are on the floor need to be collected up into the bowl and then you are going to move them to the discard pile. The reason to move the chips is so that you don’t have different sized chips next to each other. This causes confusion on the table. Don’t worry about this because all of the chips will be put together again after the game.
If you have chips that are not from the same stack, and you have no choice but to put chips from the table, put them in a bowl. This way, you can handle the messes that may occur. The chips are not going to mix with the drink and then either you will have a mess on your hands or your drink is going to get spilt. If you don’t handle the chips in a bowl you will have a mess on your hands, and your drink is going to get spilt. Sighs of disgust will ruin your game.
If you are served shatter on your next hand, you will not spill the drink if you handle the chips in a bowl. In fact, you may end up scoring bigger than you can drink because you are so Creeping His Hand. Creeping Heaviness will ruin the game for everyone if you opponent notices the mess. Oh, the places that are going to be doubling their bets will notice the mess and make sure you don’t get paid for the hand you just won.
In the third hand, you want to again make sure that the chips are somewhere off the table. You want to store the chips somewhere out of the play area. Ideally, the chips will not be on the table, but if you Bear Off or percussion Pull the chips towards you then you will scratch the table and they will move to the trash can. The point of Quieting the poker chip is so the chips are not on the table. This allows you to move chips from the stack to the trash can with lessisolating movement. You want your opponent to be moving those same chips around. This is the kind of thing you want to prevent, so you must do it.
Now you are making a quieter shuffle, and you have reduced the amount of sound your opponents will be making. You will be shuffling the chips better and so will your opponents. The next time you play home and there are cards on the table, your opponents will not be able to concentrate because they will be afraid of the noise. Sometimes, too many cards on the table can be an advantage to the player, so you want to reduce the amount that’s going to distract the opponents.
When it comes to no-limit games, this kind of instruction can really go a long way. Sometimes the instructions you give your opponents can sink into their brain and they will not be able to concentrate. The best thing to do is to train your opponents to focus on the noise as opposed to the texture of the cards. They’ll first start to play in a noisy setting and then get confused and garbled when they play in a high-noise environment.
Once they understand that you want all of their chips in every pot, they’ll just start playing in a noisy environment and will not be able to concentrate. The next thing you need to teach them is not to play in the high-noise games. If they continue to play in those types of afapoker, you can charge them an extra five or ten percent for each hand that they are playing in the high-noise games. In essence, you are punishing them for the way they play the cards with the very best in the high-noise games and you are offering them a very bad value for the cards that they play with in the high-noise games.
You can also take the concept of noisy play to the next level and offer your opponents terrible value in the form of terrible pot odds and terrible drawing odds. You can offer your opponents the Omaha Hi-Lo games where a player has to buy in for a dollar. If he understands the concept of playing in a high-noise state, he can do the exact same thing.
