I love players like the one you've described. I will likely add them to my 'friends list' & know there's a good chance I'll be able to sit with them sometime in the future, armed with prior knowledge & notes.
sidenote.... I do notice that alot of the players on my 'friends list' don't last too long on the sites. Alot of them are there for about a week or two & then poof... they're gone... sigh.
Yes. This is exactly the player who will be paying you off when you get a good hand. Bless their souls! But you need patience to play them.
I remember sitting at a table where a more aggressive version of this type sat down. Raised every hand, raised every reraise (this was limit.) Eventually, the rest of us all calmed down and took turns taking his money. In every hand, some
one has good cards, and they usually beat the maniac. Occasionally, the maniac would get lucky again, but the rest of us knew it was temporary.
Sadly, players like this do not last long. They get tired of being beat. Or they learn how to play.
