Be wary of players who offer you chips. I realise this sounds obvious to most people but I’ve just been burnt and wanted to warn anyone else as stupid as me.
That said, there are genuine good guys out there and I was given some chips by a player for leaving a comment on his Billionaire achievement on his timeline. Total legend!
But I’ve just been stung for 2/3rds of my stack (20m) by someone who messaged me and friended me about a week ago. We played a lot of poker together over the last week, had a great time. Then today he offered to give me 20m. Thought he was a friend so said that would be amazing. Went to a 20m table, told me to re raise him all in and he’d fold, and, you guessed it, he called, won, and took my 20m.
Now I’m not whining about the loss, it’s my fault, I get that. Just don’t want it to happen to anyone else. Even if you think a person can be trusted, it’s probably just best to work on your own stack without snapping up what looks like a shortcut like I did.
See you on the tables
