re: Poker & How many rounds before you establish your table image?
I play an annoying donk strategy at sng's where I minimum raise every hand (unless already raised, in which case I fold) and minimum bet on the flop every hand for about 2-3 orbits, and fold whenever I'm raised, then I pretend 'sit out' and wait. This usually gives me a very firm table image as a large donkafish, and no-one believes anything I do, which is great. So when I return to the fray all guns blazing everyones ready for a feed of tuna, and let me lead the betting cheaply, all waiting to trap or push me off on the river. It can be risky, sometimes practically donating a 3rd of my stack to establish myself as a big fish, but the payoff is rewarding. And it's fun as hell, especially when players start mouthing off about the fish bad beating them.
But anyway, it takes me about 2 - 3 orbits to establish the image I'm after, maybe more if there's a lot of activity at the table that I'm not directly responsible for initiating.
