This is a discussion on Rocks vs. Calling station within the online poker forums, in the General Poker section; When sitting at a table (live or online), what kind of table would you rather sit in:
a bunch of solid players or a bunch
I personally would rather play the rocks. You can do something to counteract their moves, whereas when it comes to calling stations you can't control their luck when they badbeat you.

solid players will make moves on you
while calling stations will bad beat you....what do you prefer?
I like to play with rocks because you can really practice your statistical play, however you earn more money with the callers.

Gotta go with the calling stations! The rocks wont play many pots and will limit your hourly average. The calling stations will beat you at times with 5/6 offsuit but FOR THE MOST PART they'll keep your hourly average high and you can wait on your prime hands AND for them to make a mistake and call your huge raise.. lol
