Also added to this thread. I figured a tight fold even if it was bad, Would mean he'd be encouraged to bluff me more when i'm stronger so was an investment any which way I saw it.
All I can say is that if you plan on playing online, and you want long term winning results, you better get to understanding the math of the game. I mean, live, you can get away with not know as much because you have a lot of other information you can get from your opponents, and if you're good at processing and reading that info, then you don't need to be as math savy. However, online, you don't have any of that. There's some psychology involved still of course, but if you don't understand the math part, you're just leaving money on the table imho.
You can start by reading my free ebook. There are lots of articles about basic math out there. If you aren't math savy, it's pretty basic math, so you just have to put a little bit of time in to learn and understand it.
