Yep, they got you to play exactly the way they wanted you to. Don't fall for it just play your game and adjust as needed. Otherwise you're going to end up being in a position you don't feel comfortable in.

Just like CS239 said, stay in control of your game. He plays junk so you play a weak hand to get at him. What's wrong with that situation? The way you get at him is to wait for the right cards and then take him out if he's playing junk hands. But don't even go at that very hard. Just let it happen if it ever does. Besides, you are not playing heads up. There are other players at the table, and you need to focus on each and every one of them same. GL to you

re: Poker & Do players ever make you play their game?
Sometimes. I have gotten better at this but every handful of games I come across an Uber aggressive player that seems to be in every hand I am in and keeps raising me pre-flop and post flop. And when I finally call or re-raise him holding something half way decent they crush me. and I walk away befuddled. Not sure if its just bad timing on my part or that player just has me pegged somehow. Because I just can't get comfortable at the table and wind up with an early crash and burn
