the type of player that will call your raises light and fold if they miss (perfect for grinding)
so if an opponent keeps playing back at us and we want to try and avoid varience as much as possible, then we get up and find another table
if opponents are just calling (calling stations) we wait for a big hand, and then we let them call us down, try to get 2 streets of value instead of 3 etc etc (in this instance we would raise the flop and turn in position, but check the river)
and if they are calling light and folding to a missed pot, then well enough said, they miss 66% of the time, so just keep raising them, but if they play back at you run away lol
i think thats where your coming from, your talking about none showdown winnings being in the + and avoiding showdown winning and losses by not getting to showdown as often
Yea your pretty much spot on, basically table hopping taking the easy pots on the tight tables.
and getting payed off on the aggro tabless.
I guess you could call it hit and run poker in a way...
although one of my pet hates is players trying to oversqueeze in position,
in my oppinion this is old news and getting outdated we know know what your doing, and for a sit n go reg like myself making the switch alot players will constantly pile on pressure....
I think just by calling these arrogant lags and potentially floating the flop if they barrel, your setting yourself up to take down a huge pot enough of the time when our hands miss for it to be profitable with the addition on the times we make a hand,
we know a standard squeeze in position from an aggressive winning reg is going to often be wide enough to give them a hard time post flop when their overbets stop to work, they have no response...
this is an alternitive to the 4-bet, because a percentage of the time your both all in and the variance is huge...
In general the more aggressive a player is and the bigger their stack we know their stealing extra chips alot of the time and they need to be punished.
ofcourse its not as easy as it sounds
