re: Poker & How to combat fish floater who'll play any two cards?
Also consider why
he's playing this way. Most of these players play this way because of 3 things.
1: They can afford it. Consider their bankroll, and not their stack on the table. In most cases, players that play this style have an appropriate bankroll backing their stack. This means they are comfortable spending a little more money up front to see the flop and make a decision with more than 2 cards. Because as we all know, being a calling station requires more than 2 cards to pay off. The small ball style is explained very well by Daniel Negreanu in his book Power Hold'em Strategy
. And can explain better ways around this player. (Or may even turn you to the dark side)
2: They see your tells
. Some may be trying to get in every hand because they see how easy it is to push the table around after the flop. Again, lots of small pots can add up.
3: They are on tilt and it's temporary. Depending on how long you have really been playing them and what has recently happpened at the table, this easy to detect. Play when you can get in a good hand and keep your head up to loose betting.
4: They just don't know any better..... Don't buy in to this one. It's usually a lie. But every now and then, at the lower levels, it's possible. Hell I guess anything is. I remember my fiance telling me how pretty the beach scene on FT was as she clicked all in preflop with 51 UTG during her first/last time she ever played.
