Playing implied odds
Something that Welly posted the other day re: the progression of a poker player got me thinking (rare occurrance). One of the lines was something like "Stop playing Tight Aggressive and start playing Implied Odds
I also notice, watching High Stakes Poker on YouTube, that the pros often call an opening raise with all kinds of what a tight player would consider junk in the hole. Presumbably calling for the implied odds if they hit.
On the other hand, watching the highest stakes games ($25-50 NL) on PokerStars
, they only play 15% of their hands on average, suggesting most players at the highest level online play pretty damn tight.
So is this a natural progression or it is tight still optimal for online play?
