Funny Screen Names in Online Poker

One of the first things you have to choose when willing to play online poker is your screen name. Some might believe this is the least important part of the game strategy. However, things might not be entirely true. Your screen name can have a direct impact on how the other competitors perceive your strategy. How? In short, you can use it to distract, deceive or influence. But there is more… So, let’s learn how you can use your screen name to your own advantage. Take a look at some funny screen names that made history or at least made some laugh hard.

Every poker player must choose a name at some point when gambling online. The idea of never willing to change it can cause a real pressure. So, we can agree it’s important to take your time to find the one that fits your profile.

Others, on the contrary, don’t believe in its importance. It cannot influence the skills of a player. Psychologists, however, state that it might have a strong effect at a subconscious level.

As you see there are many theories concerning this topic. But let’s discover some real examples.

How do gamblers usually choose their names?

Studies show that the screen name is usually influenced by several factors:

  • Age
  • Sex
  • Location
  • Personal preferences
  • Favorite players
  • Others

For instance, Matt might call himself ‘mattfl1990’, Daniel might call himself ‘DanielN’. There is no exact science. But things don’t stop here! Let’s take a look at some funny screen names that made history. Some might sound familiar:

  • bad_ip = Johnny Lodden
  • durrrr = Tom Dwan
  • BeepBeepImaJeep – Max Villemure

Some chose their online name randomly, while others just write what sounds funny at that moment. Either way, you take it, screen names are part of the online image you create.

Funny screen names don’t go unnoticed!

As much as we don’t care about our opponents’ names, some might make your day. Intimidating or serious? No way! Instead, some seriously funny screen names!

We’re sure you’ve met such players too, so share your experience with us. We’re curious… Here are some of the names that made our day:

  • ‘ILikePie’
  • ‘Thx4allFish!’
  • ‘Cindurrrrella’
  • ‘SitandGoBroke’
  • ‘looked_18_to_me’
  • ‘HopeThisNameWillFit’
  • ‘MyHeartBreakes’

Types of screen names

From another point of view, picking a name that is available is also a difficult task, especially on sites such as PokerStars, 888Poker or Party Poker where the number of active players is high. The good names are already taken so you have to be creative to find your own name fast.

So we can divide the names into these categories. The majority will fit the profile:

  • Famous Poker Player Names: AnnieDuke1234
  • Poker terms: BlackJackXprt
  • Simply letters: aker35454, lyn4521
  • Nicknames: SmellyJack
  • Location: JoeyTX
  • Birthdate: Anne1990
  • Or combinations of all…

All in all, don’t focus that much on your screen name. Yes, it is part of your game and you must be comfortable with it. But don’t exaggerate. Focus more on having a good run on the tables and keeping your bankroll raising. Don’t get too serious about your screen name. In the end, the funny screen names can easily be remembered, which may turn out to be an advantage or not… Choose wisely!
