Depending on the way a player plays poker, there are a few titles that they are given. Let’s take a look at some of the most famous and funny ones.

We’re not talking about the Rock who often says ‘Jabroni’ but about poker players who are reluctant to take risks and play only the best hand possible. Such players are also known as Nits. Rocks or Nits usually sit back and wait for the very best hand to come their way and would not mind staying without playing till that time too. Nits usually play the Kings, Ace, Queens etc., mostly the cards that are higher up in the hand ranking table.
Newbies who have not mastered the game and often do not show interest in learning the game are known as Noobs. But what’s the difference between Noobs and Newbies? Newbies have the zeal to learn and become better at the game while Noobs are mostly reluctant to learn new strategies about the game.
Aaah! Maniac’s are the ones who most players fear. Maniacs play almost all hands, keep raising and re-raising irrespective of their hole cards.
