Seems like every tournament I play there's at least one guy at my table trying this.
Very interesting, Brann6.
So this is a modern type of play, and a complete reverse of the teachings from the founding fathers of the game we love!
Playing on a passive table must be an absolute dream for players using this style. Surely though it should be used with an element of common sense, once exposed, surely it is time to take a different approach?
The guy I was talking about (after 1hr tournament chip leader of 2,000) carried on just the same no matter how many times he was exposed. We all bided our time waited for good starters, and if we hit we let him bet into us, call call call all the way (wham bam thankyou mam, mostly). He lost the lot in the next 1hr!
