How do you deal with hyperaggressive players?
Title says it all. I'm finding the counter to my playstyle is hyperaggro players in NLHE.
I mix up my style, but I generally play the opposite of whatever my opponents are. When they think they've got me figured out, I switch gears. I have no problems being aggressive, especially if the table is soft. I usually adjust according to the table. Tight table, I play LAG. Loose table, I play TAG.
How do you deal with a super aggressive player? One that has no problem reraising and shoving with any two cards because he knows you're not going to call and put your stack at risk on a marginal hand. Meanwhile he loves and has no problem playing bingo.
Any suggestions on how to deal with such a player?
Also, how would you go about dealing with them in tourney play as well as ring game?
My friend tells
me you basically either have to go toe to toe with them, or just sit back and let them play their game until you got a hand to butt heads with them and pray that it holds.
Is this really what you have to do?
I've learned that reraising them hard or even shoving will sometimes do the trick to teach them you won't be bullied, but its just too much "gambool" for my liking and... What if they suddenly wake up with a real hand?
How do YOU deal with such a player?
In a tourney?
In a ring game?
Thanks in advance.
