Hi, I am a newbie too but I think I can clarify this
To answer your dilemma : OPTIMAL PLAY IS EXPLOITATIVE PLAY
As a poker player your objective should be to maximize your wins and minimize your loses, basically to get the most out of your winning hands and lose the least out of your losing hands.
In order to do maximize your winning hands you have to identify how others play AND EXPLOIT THAT, basically get the most money you can out of that player. That's what good play means (and good = optimal if my english is correct )
I hope that has helped you, good luck and ask if there's something unclear
