No different at all. And not saying you're wrong. In fact that used to be my exact strategy. Over time, I've developed the opinion that it's better to deal with them early before their stack gets to big. While you're waiting for that big hand, they're often chipping up. By the time the big hand comes, you might only be making a dent in this guys stack, and you've still got a loose aggressive player to deal with. But if you can expose his game early on, and others at the table see him raising light, bluffing
, etc., they will likely be more willing play against him, causing him to settle down. But if he does, it's likely that it will only be temporary. Eventually he will revert back to loose aggressive play. We are, after all, creatures of habit.
