Conversations at the table

(regarding a hand in which I held Ace-Queen and he held Queen-Nine)

Him: "My nine has the same chance of winning as your Ace"
Me: "Uh, no. When we both hit a queen, I win. When we both miss, I win. The only way you can win is to hit a nine, one of three cards in the deck. All the other times, I win.
Him: .... (silence).

Haven't you ever heard the expression "Don't tap the fish tank?" I think this is a clear example of what NOT to do during a poker game. You should not be educating the fish, where you derive your income. It's not your job to make it the already arduous task of relieving them of their chips more difficult. Don't educate the fish!

good advice that my ego needs to follow. Too busy trying to seem smart.

Something tells me that his silence was more of an indication he wasn't following you rather than he was understanding you. That's just how Kevin is after 15 or 16 beers. *lol*
