Good/Bad Comments, Sayings, and Cliches you've heard at the Poker Table.

After throwing a horseshoe and hearing that he played better than me:

I know.

Just hacking on you, that's all.

The other guy probably wasn't a Young Guns fan, he just said Cool.

I'm still waiting for this one:

- You are not a god.

- Why don't you pull the trigger and find out?

Here is a quote (paraphrasing) from old time gambler/poker player, Puggy Pearson:

"You can beat up on a player and pound on him, and pound, and pound some more and he'll keep coming back if he thinks the game is honest, but if you cheat him out of a quarter he'll never play with you again."

On a similar note, Amarillo Slim said:

"You can shear a sheep many times but you can skin it only once."

"I've got the Nuts."

Probably the worse phrase you will hear your opponent say at the poker table.  Most of you know it means that they have the best possible hand.  I've heard several players say the phrase a second or two before they show their hand at showdown.  I don't know why they choose to say it.  Maybe, if they are a player who bluffs a lot,  it's to reinforce the idea in their opponents mind that yes sometimes even they wake up with a great hand.

I've said a few times, before I raise with K-K, "you better have A-A". Somebody always calls, then you lose or win. Still kind of a bad thing to say, I guess. I'm a bad loser, so if someone hits the ace at 1/3 probability, at least I got to say a decent quote.

The following comment was made by Mike "The Mouth" Matusow to another player at the 2004 World Series of Poker Main Event:

"I've got big Cahonees.  You've got small Cahonees."
