Bluffing The Mentally Challenged
Artists would have you believe that The Idiot' bumbling visage is character foil for the misinformed arrogance of Proud Nordics such as yourself. Nonsense. Stuttering retards and senile old men make horrible poker players. Because their stupidity makes them unbluffable (as they will certainly call with any decent hand) you must wait for good hands with your divinely imparted European patience. Schizophrenics, however, can be bluffed when they confuse your whispers of "fold"Â¦fold..." with the voices in their head.
Important 4th Street Concepts Against Negroes
The Negro will often try pushing you off a hand by raising the turn. In fact, because it is in his nature, he will probably raise every street, and only fold when it is clear that his aggressive betting and intrinsic ability to inspire terror in more gentle peoples will not allow him to "steal" the pot. Of course, after the game breaks up, he will be waiting in an alley, brandishing some sort of primitive weapon in an effort to regain by force the money his feeble mind and lack of self-control cost him.
Note: Also, beware The Chinaman, who in an effort to compensate for his diminished physical stature, frequently assumes a poker style similar to that of The Reckless Negro.
