re: Poker & Establishing table image
as arjonius has tapped into It can depend on the players.
And 100% the site your playing.
is now at the point where optimal play is pretty standard most regs and recs have read up on image by now.
So if you have any exposed hands or your raising alot from early position in a tournament, its very likely someone will look you up within a few hands.
And seldom raising from late position especially in 10minute blinds, will get you respect, a large majority of players will have the capacity to think of a range of hands you might have, and assess the flop.
but you will get tables you can roll over and just, C-bet C-bet 3-bet pre take it down by flop
I dont pay to much attention to intellectual strategy in low stake games.
ofcourse if I exposed a hand or fold after checking, some awful donk is going to just read a check as a bluff spot next time over bet, and its an extremely easy manipulative move
