    Default Choosing online handle

    Is it a not a good idea to choose a handle that may change how people play you? For example 'stealthebutton' or 'rock' or 'bigbluff' etc.

    I doubt it these days, but it could influence some people.
    It's just that the people that will be influenced by your name and not your history are the ones you should handily beat, anyway.

    Pick something you won't mind saying out loud when you find someone to talk poker with, IMO.



    Tom Dwan famously used your logic in choosing his online name, durrrr.
    You can find any pattern you want to any level of precision you want, if you're prepared to ignore enough data.
