    How to spot a fish at a poker table.

    The fish announces "raise" when he is the first to enter the pot.

    The fish picks up his hole cards completely off the table with both hands as if he were playing Gin Rummey.

    The fish berates you when you call his bluff with less than a premium hand getting 10:1 odds.

    The fish limps folds repeatedly in cash games with less than 10BB.

    The fish always takes me to the cleaners when seated at my table.

    Just a few of the funny and obvious that comes to mind.

    The fish wears Buckeye Gear

    The Fish is named Bruce

    The Fish tells you about his worst bad beats how his AA lost to 55 for 10bb

    The Fish has no idea how much he has in front of him if you ask for a count

    The Fish trys to check after you bet

    The fish turns over 56 on a 789Tx board and yells "NUTS" only to be deflated when you show him the J

    The fish sticks a $5 chip out playing 1/3 then argues with the dealer that he raised when he is thrown $1 chips

    Last night there were two limpers in a $1/$2 live cash game. I raised to $19 on the button with:



    Chrissy called $18 from the small blind, since she had already invested $1 in the pot. She had a total stack of $150, giving her excellent implied odds with:



    I doubled her up on this flop:



    Someone asked why she called pre-flop, and she said it was because I hadn't raised enough.

    Ok, that didn't make any sense. Who is Chrissy?

    Limp raises 50x and shows AA when everyone folds and says "I'm glad everyone folded because I would have lost, I'm happy with what was in the pot" ($8)
