Dealing with Loose, Lucky Players
I think you could describe me as being on super-super tilt at the moment. I've just about had it with these loose,lucky players who play awful cards out of position, and persist in busting you with their crap holdings.
I seem to be on the worst run ever at the moment. I'd describe myself as being a solid-agressive player who understands the value of position and which cards to play in which slot at the table. I'm certainly not the best, but I regard myself as a pretty decent player.
I've busted out 1st, 2nd, 3rd or 4th in the last 6 tourneys I've played. Each time it has been against one of these numpteys, who calls my raise with crap (king-rag, ace-rag, 6-4 off etc etc) and manages to bust be when I have premium hands.
How are you used to play against this, I just can't deal with it? I read and study, read and study and practice and it seems that I just can't beat it. They are calling me for all their chips on the flop on 10 high flush draws, calling me with middle pair when I have aces and getting two pair, it's happening all the time.
Do I limp more and see more flops and wait until I am really secure before I start putting the pressure on or what? I'm the type of player who calls very rarely. I'm either folding or raising, and I'm folding more often than not.
Hopefully I can get some feedback, or at least some solidarity because my confidence is in bits.
