First, it would be difficult enough to identify the fish and keep track of them.
And in poker, nothing is guaranteed. If these guys were truly good poker players, they wouldn't waste time looking for a "fish", they would try their luck with the regular players. Even the best players occasionally make mistakes or you could just get lucky. It's worth trying, assuming your confident enough. And you never really know who the "fish" are anyway. Also, time is precious and not worth wasting time looking for fish who may or may not be fish anyway.
No, if I had to guess, I think this sounds more like a guy who is afraid to get his feet wet. He is probably so nervous about losing money that the best he can do is just sit at the table and watch. Its kind of like standing at the edge of a diving board and not having the courage to jump. That's what I think.
why would regs want to play regs?, don't most people want to play with someone below their skill level? regs know each other too, they spend 8+hrs a day together.
there is also websites to check peoples stats- easy to know when someone is playing out of their skill level (you ever went to sharkscope
sure fish will win some too-its a given…but in the long run, they leave broke!!
this is def. not a guy afraid to play lol
p.s. they are headsup tbls- he's not watching nobody
just a grinder grinding
