What’s in a Name?

What's in a Name?

If you want to play in a poker game, download poker software from an online poker site. One of the first decisions you have to make will be your name. From what I've seen and heard from other players, anyone with a name that's based on the movie Rounders will generally be a bad player. If you have 420 in your name, that's even worse. Of course, this is not to say it will actually affect your game, just that it will affect how people perceive you.

I think it's best to have a very inconspicuous name. If you're called BigBluffer, it's not really clear whether people will call you more. What is clear, though, is that they'll pay a lot of attention to you to try to figure out if your name is accurate. That's going to help them make good decisions against you.
