This is such a common missconception.
So if someone is playing loose, you should play tight, and then they should play even looser, and you should play even tighter? Then everyone should always just play either as loose or as tight as they possibly can?
Feels like there is something wrong with the logic there...
Truth of the matter is that you can play loose vs loose players, as long as you are playing tighter than them, and you can steal a lot vs tight players, but you need to play tighter than tight vs them when they call or raise.
And then there are lots of different categories of loose players and tight players, and you need to be able to adapt.
A player can be very tight pre-flop and very loose post flop, or the opposite.
