Default Does anyone like to use catchphrases when going allin and stacking someone?

I do! My current one is "Big Bomb.....KABOOM!" Then I'll do the "KABOOM!!!" again for special effects. My buddy who plays under the screen name of FreshUndies on Stars loves to say, "GETCHUSOME BIGMAN!!" Great Stuff.

I'm confused. To the OP, are you actually writing these sayings in the chatbox, or are you just saying them outloud to yourself?

Generally when I'm playing poker my wife is doing something on her computer behind me. When I stack someone for a full buy-in I turn around and tell her that making moniez in poker is easy.

What I don't do is tell her when I lose a buy-in, so she probably thinks I never lose a session and have a gagillion dollars in my poker account which I should be spending on her instead!

I recall reading in someone's sig something to the affect of telling your significant other of your winnings is EV-

I find it ideal to say that I broke even. This way I'm not an idiot for losing and I don't have to spend my winnings on her.

True, but telling your wife you are winning is probably -EV. On the other hand though, getting to play extra time than you usually would before she starts to feel ignored since you are making money you can use in real life is a bigger +EV boost!

This is the classic ROI versus table hours tradeoff.

I sometimes say things outloud before I push all in while i am playing online. none of it is usually printable. wife can tell if i am winning or losing based on the previous statement.
