For some time I notice that I do best play against regular than against fishes, and lose money against these .No I explain very well why, I guess it's because his game is less standard and it costs me more to read.
My question is how you're supposed to play to beat them money?
I agree with Disater. I play alot of home games with different crowds (many of wich are fish) and find that you should tighten your range play more value and don't try any fancy plays. Fish, while not all fish are the same, tend to be calling stations so bluffs will only bleed your bankroll. You may think that if you tighten up and only play value hands then you wont get any action, but remember your playing against fish. They don't remember what you played and from what position and what your sizing was. They will oftentimes give you action with trash and get stacks in with a dominated hand. Playing ABC poker puts less emphasis on hand ranges which fish are really hard to put on. Hope this helped.
