How do you confront the weak calling station/donkey/bluffer?
I could use some advice; How do you handle this type of player?
1. Always limps in every hand from almost any position, and will call a raise with it as well.
2. Will do the above with AA, AK, KK, or 2-7off, 10-rag suited, etc;
3. Will call any c-bet, with or without a hand (often will call down w J-high, no pair, no draw, etc) Often just will not fold until the river.
4. Will hardly bet out (if at all?!?) any good holding, so if he flops a set, he will just call or check it down. If he has the absolute nuts, he still will not 3-bet, or bet at all. EXCEPT FOR...
5. If you bet and he calls, then you check, he will bet out on the turn (sometimes) or the river (almost always). You have no clue if he has a hand or doesn't. Sometimes you call and he is bluffing
, sometimes he actually has a hand (from bottom pair to the nuts)
6. Will often limp in and call any all in with god-only-knows what hand, you just don't know!
7. Seems to run real good until one of those all-in calls, usually into a multiway all in, takes them out.
I'm doing only a fair job against these types, as they are horrible to get a read from. I get them with the number 5 by deliberately checking after I flop something really good and bet the flop, I just check to get them to bet. But if I 3-bet, he may or may not call it. You just never know what they may or may not have, until they finally fold. But this guy just screws with your c-betting strategy, and since he is so often also in a hand, aaarrrgghhhh.....
What do you do when confronted with this type of quiet psycho (I call it the Norman Bates type)?
