People come on here and say I wanna be this or I wanna be that. You should already be that. Your game should consist of the fact that if they are running over you fight back or if they are too tight bet more. im saying the basis and structure should always be the same.
Ok, I am going to try to seriously address this post becuase I think you missed the point of the Micro Stakes thread and got pissed off and flamed a little and it is going to keep happening.
No one is saying in that other thread that you don't always take into account your opponents, you do. What they are saying is that often especially at the micro limits players are so bad than you don't ever need to change your play to exploit them. Some are good enough and need to be identified. The point is trying to identify those villians and those spots. That is why you will see us post questions about 3bet% or vpip, or steal%. You don't need to be a very good player to beat 5nl, I am living proof of that. We are in that thread working out how to be better.
Also in regard to already being able to switch gears between aggressive and passive and loose or tight we are all learning that. that is again the point. It is a learning thread, not a "I am already the bomb beatng 1Knl for 5.5BB/100 thread".
As usual I could be way off and you might just be a FRW troll looking for 50 posts to get the password but in case your not...fwiw
