Play with the fish.
These players to easily identify their chips will slowly leak out at an early stage, and you, of course, you need to use it.
You need to find someone who will respect your aggression. This is a weak player. Someone who is waiting for a good hand, a monster on the flop and hope that someone so stupid that he would remain in the hand, when they finally start to bet and raise. Familiar? You need to find a player and punish him. The easiest option - raise everything and steal his blinds. But once this is over and the player himself is aware of the weak and try to stop your head. The best option would be to stop, calm down for a short while, and continue. Continue to put pressure on them until it works.
