Using the close calls to deceive
Your tight... you see 15.9% of the flops. Your aggressive, you bet those hands hard. But, in certain games you have a hard time getting folks to play back. You work hard to cultivate that tight image, because you know tight aggressive wins. But, you now pick up the blinds with your powerul hands.
Can we appear to loosen up, but remain tight? Sure we can.
OK Q8 is the average hand dealt. Find moments when you are in position, and you get open limpers or 2. Limp with it. Run a hand that is Q8 or marginally better. If everyone checks the flop, bet it. If someone bet the flop call. Many times you won't get to show down... That's ok. You are only marginally worse than a range of hands folks will limp with. If you get to showdown, win or lose you will immediately changed your image. People will think you have are a loose cannon, and start giving you action. Really all you did was identiy a 50/50 situation and played it as opposed to folding it. In 50/50 there is no positive or negative expectation to the bet. Use these times to evaluate your table image, and if altering is required this is the opportunity to change it...for free.
DO NOT DO THIS IN TOURNAMENTS. 50/50 situations can put you out of the game.
