- A term used to describe an inappropriate manner of expressing frustration towards weaker players, "educating" them in the process.
Moron Poker Pros
A professional poker player ("ppp") is supposed to have the discipline and self-control to not act as a coach, a critic, or a teacher at the poker table.
Despite this, many pros can't help themselves but express frustration at weaker players by indicating the flaws in the "lives ones'" game.
This approach is not only unpleasant but also counter-intuitive and constitutes "tapping the glass."
