4. Has a very low PFR (pre-flop raise percentage) compared to the percentage of hands they play and checks and calls most streets instead of folding & raising
5. Does not understand RELATIVE hand strength - ex. will call all the way to the river and play for stacks with 2 pair on a 4-flush board without one of that suit
In summary: they play loose and passive, are pay-off monkeys, and seldom extract enough value out of their good hands. There lines make absolutely no sense and they bluff when their opponent is obviously strong. They are ATM's. Don't berate them (don't tap on the aquarium). Play long enough and u will get their money. Don't bluff a lot - value-bet the socks off em'
Damn all of those fit me perfectly.
1.2 cards are all i need to win and hate to mis a full boat whne folding 49
2.if its cheap il donk in,if i get raised after limping,il just fold or donk it all in
3.aces are the best even with low or unconnected,might flop 2 pair with a7
4.dont want to scare everyone away raising with my a7
5.2 pair beats a 4 card flush,now if on the river i get the 5th same suit,ill go all in to scare away everyone and brag that i had 2 pair
