by the way i lose most of my money calling their nuts.
I think at low stakes, a lot of players fall into generic types. You can often tell from the HUD how a person plays with only a couple of hundred hands on them.
Someone who folds 50% of the time to c-bets is only continuing postflop with a decent hand. Someone who folds only 20% is basically continuing with most overcards (peeling flops).
Someone with a V$IP preflop of 10% is only playing pairs, premium suited cards and AJo+ KQo.
Somoeone with a V$IP of 30 % is playing all pairs, all broadway, all aces all suited connectors.
People who play this range tend to cling to draws and will not fold if they hit a piece of the flop,.
Someone witha a 10% range is far more likely to c-bet and then give up on the turn than someone with a looser range where they are more likely to turn into a calling station if they hit the flop.
So I dont really agree that opponents are so vastly different that you cant put some of this information to good use.
