10 reasons why you play "TAG" poker at micro limit ring games and still lose money...
I hear so many (bad) players whining these days about how they can't beat micro limit games playing a tight & aggressive game. Well they're obviously doing it wrong, and here's why:
1) You fail to recognize that your good preflop hand does not mean squat if the flop comes out badly.
2) You can't fold top pair, because its the best hand the majority of the time.
3) You think playing KJ and AT in early position is playing tight.
4) You slowplay.
5) You think players notice your tight play.
6) You go on tilt when your AK loses to some idiot with 97.
7) You do not raise/re-raise nearly enough before the flop.
8) You think folding 98 suited in late position to a raise is playing TAG.
9) You don't want them to chase.
10) When your opponent hits his obvious draw, you proceed to spew money to him anyways.
Can't say I'm immune to these things myself, but this is generally why you're losing money. You're a giant implied odds
machine that doesn't get enough money out of their big hands, doesn't understand pot control with your mediocre ones, and then you bluff way to much and go on tilt and spew off more money.
