re: Poker & The Wrong Effort
you can put people on higher cards if raise etc... but got to be careful i follow pots if am hitting like two pair or hitting what I generally consider rubbish hands lol I will play anything and I will raise with 8-10 or 3-5 suited at times.
I try to be unpredictable also will call some raises with hands most wouldnt at times. Depends if am hitting etc.. How I feel that day etc..
Now I will lay down easily though hands if had say aq and flop is jack 8 7 etc.. I just dont feel that is my hand usually the straight hits or a flush.
What is annoying to me is to watch what consider rubbish players and encounter them in all levels playing 2-6 suited and acting like hit a lotto to chase a flush with aj 8 on board etc.. I run into people calling that down major raises even if they will be all in etc..
These players are pretty amazing and honestly I usually am in the running in freerolls
etc.. so see who makes it who doesnt and this same group of people do not make it lol.
So those are the people the chasers the weak players the rubbish playing for flushes garbage players I want to identify them so can fold at times if cards are not holding off. Just dont want to mix it up the poker gods take care of them and for them to take me out is or can be frustrating.
So I want to identify the persons game are they a bingo player do they play every hand. Do they call down can they be bluffed etc.. Are they weak do they show weakness in betting patterns.
Is a lot more to identify than what you believe they are holding.
I limp I mix it up I will slow play fast play depends on how the cards are turning. I change timing of bets for responses etc.. So is a lot more involved I can put a lot of people on tilt. I find it funny to watch when I do it.
Also in a tourney room playing tight ever notice someone all ins and room opens up lol. If got a lot of bad players youd be shocked.
I wonder on some players last night 6 th guy into a pot all in with king two offsuit wth was he thinking 6 all ins this is in second hour of a tourney lol.
Give up did he just say ok I suck and need to quit lol? So yeah is a lot more important to my game than identifying just what these guys play. Is more bad players imho than good. So yep some of the bad ones get lucky but I need to identify them especially if late in events that weakness they have can be exploited at the right times.
