I agree. There's a big difference between TAGs & TAGfish
TAGs will know how to properly play IN POSITION & not out of position. They know how to control the pot and be the aggressor. They are not going to get bullied around when they have a strong hand.
Loose passive are definitely what you want to play against. When they play 34 because it's SOOTED and they hit bottom two pair and they try to "slow play" 34 on a
flop and you have AK. They check the flop out of position, you bet. They call.
appears on the turn. Now they want to shove and get stacked off to the bigger two pair.
Don't be that guy/gal. If you're going to play trash or speculative hands... don't flat call out of position if you're not getting the right pot odds
and it's heads up against a regular TAG winning player you're just asking to spew/bleed chips away. There's a time and place for playing ATC, but don't be that guy/gal with 50% VPIP.
