It's pretty hard to gang up on someone at a table unless you're not playing fair......I've got a great story about two guys trying to gang up on me one time.....
 
I'd, admittedly, made a couple of bad plays in a short period of time....these two guys starting talking about my playing....as if I wasn't even there......at one point one of them said I'd have to be an idiot to make that call.......I said nothing up until that point.....at that point I said, "Dude, if I want to hear from an *sshole, I'll fart."  The table just fell out and this guy got pissed so he and his buddy starting trying to bully me at the table......then God stepped in and made it all right.
 
I get dealt Ace, 10 of clubs (in hold 'em)....the flop comes 3 clubs. (so, I have the nut flush from the start) I bet, one of the jerks raises me and the other jerk raises him....everyone else dropped out.....I raise back and the other guy raised me the last time.  (you can only raise 3 times per round in this particularly game)  The next card comes....and we max the bets again.......same with the last card.
 
These guys are talking sh*t the whole time.....and when the final call is made one of the guys throws over his straight....the other guy throws over his K 9 of clubs and both are smiling, smiling, smiling (they were obviously buddies).......I slowly and with great showmanship say....wow...pretty darn good hands.......then as I show my cards....first the 10 and then slid out the Ace...I say, "But not good enough...".......several people at the table just said "Wow" in unison.....you should have seen their faces....like they'd seen a ghost.......I just laughed quietly and raked in a 1000 dollar pot (no sh*t!).
 
They didn't say another word to me and after a few more hands I graciously said....well it's been a pleasure.....and walked over to cash my chips.....I watched my back till I got out of town. (Vegas)
 
One of my best poker stories ever.....{:--)
