Hello people, I think I'm not the only one who bothers those kinds of players who raise you round after round with any type of cards, and I was thinking about how to play against these guys and a strategy that I am using a lot lately is to be more aggressive than them, most of the time they fold but hey, this movement is not 100% effective either, what do you think about this and what do you do to counteract these rivals.
Considering I play the bully style at a tight table, the kryptonite is that one player who waits for a good spot to take some chips off me. I'm hip to this so always on the lookout.
Getting into a pissing match is not ideal. I recommend waiting AND watching. Wait for an optimal hand and do your best to induce said aggressiveness. You do this by picking up on betting patterns, size amount, position and anything else you think will help. You can then hit 'em w/ the way of the fist, Cobra Kai style.
I like them to do my betting for me. I will have a top bet in mind when I check to them. Either a check raise or check call, depending on position and chip stack.
Like all strategies they do back fire at times. lol That is what it is all about.
Usually, you need to play a more compressed range against lags, but you say that these players fold a lot, so it's not lags, it's tags, and against tags you need to play very carefully and pay you very rarely, another thing is maniacs, if you choose a line of calls, fish will pay the entire stack himself, thinking that you believe in his bluff. Apparently you play a lot of hands, even if you are dealt monsters 3 times in a row, not the fact that they will reach 3 times in a row, in any case, the third QQ+ will lose, there are basic statistics that should be followed to have a good image, and the number of these indicators will vary from the speed and size of the table at which we play, in heads up, the main indicators may have very high values, and the game will not be fishy, but if such indicators are in a tournament with a regular structure on the 9th max table, naturally we will become a good prey. So if you can't find the line how to adjust to the game of your opponents, learn the Mat part.
