I played in a very loose aggressive home game tonight. When the weren't aggressive they were still very loose. So my question is... Is tight passive the cure for loose aggressive? I read on several occasions that playing the opposite of how the table plays is where you will get the money.
Does or can tight passive beat loose aggressive, tight aggressive beat loose passive or vice versa?

The best tactics, play againgt the table. E.g. If many people at the table loose aggressive, you have to be tight passive.

You definitely want to play tighter than the rest of the table but you can actually open up a little in late position. I'll call raises with lots of implied odds type hands (suited connectors, one/two gappers, and any 2 broadway cards). When you play these hands you're looking to flop big and build a big pot or maybe hit a pair and use you position to keep the pot small.

re: Poker & Table Image?
When there are loose or aggressive opponents I tend to play very tight. The loose and aggressive players tend to damage each other. If one of them gets lucky and builds up a big chip stack I find that it can be quite easy when you get good hands to pick the chips of their stacks.
