But my friends say that they sit at the table and just try to make money. Sometimes making wrong decisions but as long as the pot goes to them they dont care.
What are your thoughts.
Ok well your friends are the large % of players I like to see and are the most common you will find. They will pay for their draws, pay for their sets, and they will pay off many of their 1 pair type hands.
They cannot be winning players long term because long term they will not get their money in as a % favorite in the hand. I always try, and often do, get my hand in as a large % favorite, at least 60-65%+.... thats all you can really do in poker.
