Who says this leads to calling them down lightly? and thus Your losing more to them then you really like/Tilting you to seek them out more...Or if you Sit down with them (Automatically start thinking. He Crap/Shit/Donk), and this Gets you into Trouble...
This is usually the Advice I receive from the members on here (At least my own take on it), and wanted to pass the message along...
I go by knowing what their stats. are (& obviously by seeing what hands they're showing down & their betting patterns ie. not too hard to see a guy is a fish when he's min-raising limpers while OOP, or open-raising 20x, or 3bet minbetting, etc. However, on cash tables I do tend to generalize some players by country of origin, ie. 'Spain' (micros) 'typically' very loose, will call down with junk.
As far as the general consensus on the play of micro limit Russian players, I actually find that alot of the micro SNG regs. are Russians & they tend to be quite good (same with Germany
). Whereas Austria
& Italy are usually very bad; Austraila pretty bad but not awful; Brazil Super Aggro;
