He will oftern call a reraise, but then fold on a big turn bet if he has nothing, but this is a risky strategy as he may have a hand. he seems to be able to pick up more money by stealing blinds through out than i do wen i have a hand. Any suggestions please?
With this type of opponent, when I have the nuts on the flop, I just check, knowing that this type of player will always throw his chips in the middle and save me the trouble.
I love trapping these types of players because it's so easy to do because you don't really need to bait the trap, the fish will swim in with ease.
