This is a discussion on What kind of profile you recommend? within the online poker forums, in the Learning Poker section; Hi, in the link you can see a polar graphic where I expound from my point of view (and experience) the setup of the profile
Hi, in the link you can see a polar graphic where I expound from my point of view (and experience) the setup of the profile that I use for each situation.
For live tournaments
psychologic 40%, strategic 40%, limp 5%, bluff 5%, luck 10%
For live cash board
psychologic 50%, strategic 25%, limp 5%, bluff 10%, luck 10%
For online tournaments
psychologic 30%, strategic 50%, limp 5%, bluff 5%, luck 10%
For online cash board
psychologic 35%, strategic 45%, limp 5%, bluff 10%, luck 5%
But I'm not sure if this is the correct setup for each situation... Some times I win, some loose... something like 40/60, what you think about it?
Looks like a loser to me, no matter what you pick...
To be successful, you need to be out of the box, that is what wins.
If you play like everyone else, or play in a predictable way, good players will pick you apart. Changing from TAG, LAG, passive aggressive, as a game moves will end up being a winner. If a villain can tell you are playing loose, tight, passive, never bluff, bluff too much, ect... you will end up being lunch.

This is so abstract and non-practical that makes no sense to me.
A "close-to-optimal" style of playing depends on a lot of things (tournament structure, style of opponents, stakes, etc.).
Also, I don't think anybody should play in a style that they are not comfortable with.
Well, I don't like theorizing this game so vaguely like that...

Also, those parameters (psy, strategy, luck, limp, bluff) mak no sense AT ALL. Strategy and luck are things you need to succeed in a game, but bluffing and limping are concrete plays and, obviously, part of your strategy... How does "10% limping and 70% strategy" apply? Are you limping with 10% of your hands? And the more you limp or the more you bluff, the less strategy you could have??? LOL. Sorry to bring you the bad news, but this is all total nonsense.
I'd say go play and try to improve your game without thinking if you are applying X of psy and Y of strategy. That's insane.

re: Poker & What kind of profile you recommend?
I agree with Others that profile of yours doesnt make sense
We cannot stick with one throughout the game as you can be easily exploited and ripped fully
The tournament & cash requires a lot of skill than some fixed profile
you must adapt to changing dynamics of table from time to time in order to be profitable in this game
