In my limited experiences with NLHE, Being a loose player can be
a good thing when the table is playing tightly, but playing ''too loose''
is a common mistake with many overly aggressive
type players i.m.o.
If you can see a flop for a reasonable price with any suited connector like a
, that is not playing too loose i.m.o. These are good hands with a lot of potential that can crush
big pocket pairs when/if they hit the board. If the price is right to play them.
But when someone starts playing junk hands like
or something like a
aggressively, they are just asking for big trouble as far as I am concerned.
Say that the board hits
and you are playing the
. Now what!? What if your opponent is playing big slick
or any Ace with a bigger kicker, now what are you going to do? What if your opponent flopped a four flush or a straight draw or even a straight?
You are royally screwed in that type of situation!
That's why those types of hands are trash for the most part and should usually be mucked as far as I am concerned.
