    Yesterday I played a tournament and there was one guy at the table who called me anything. I did not step into this conversation, it´s way below my standards.
    However, I´m sick of those aggressive idiots and would like to know what you would do in such case.
    Do you report them? Or whatelse can be done?

    You can report them for being abusive to players
    and you, but i really don't know what much will be done about it. These people
    really need to learn how to lose graciously, and stop harrassing people at the table.

    I played a game the other day, this guy was playing very aggressive, so i called him
    down with a top pair, whent here was 4 to the flush out on the board. He could not
    believe i had just called him after his bet, and called me a donk, and much other stuff.

    Well, 2 hands later, i really got under his skin when i called his 2x the blind raise when i was
    big blind, with 108 of diamonds, to see the flop. I flopped an open ended straight draw,
    and he bet 2x the big blind, and i pushed allin for about 4x the big blind more, trying
    to make a move on him. I caught the straight on the river, busting his JJ.

    He was so mad, he called me so many different names and told me that i was a terrible player,
    and just kept on and on. I took him out on that hand, and i kid you not, he hung around
    because on the cake poker network, guests can still chat after the game. He stayed
    there for at least 30 minutes and kept ranting about how bad a player i was, and that
    i shouldn't be playing poker, it was totally ridiculous. He would say something like
    its so ridiculous that you put all your chips in on a draw, and i would say,
    what is ridiculous, is that you ARE STILL here 30 minutes after you lost, ranting about
    losing. It was totally crazy, that someone would lose, and just could not get over it.

    I say, i paid my tournament buyin, we all get our own 2 cards, we can play them however we want. If you lose, get over it, and stop whining. Learn to lose graciously, or at least be a good sport about it.

    Personally i just sit back and let them say whatever they want. When the time is right i knock them out and laugh at them. Or quite a few poker rooms have the option of muting certain players. Reporting doesn't usually do very much unless others have reported the player before.
