The good TAGs can make as much of a good read as a LAG, and if they have a good read on you, they'll know that you don't want to be check raised by them, and they can use that image. I think a TAG in position is much more scary than a LAG guy.
I usually do a lot of light 3-bet and check behind a lot on the River when I have showdown value. LAGs river bets aren't that scary to me.
Neverplay out of position against a TAG. They are the scariest.
i should have worded it better, but since this is a general type thread, i answered pretty generally/quickly.
I'm talking about attacking them preflop more than postflop, but we can reserve moves vs TAGs postflop on boards that do not hit their range.
regarding good TAGs that is the same for good anybody, but this thread has made no reference to it being a good TAG or a bad TAG, so it's just playing vs a Tight aggressive style player, just a random. Even though most TAGs are kind of on the better side, they also are on the nitty side of things, and are able to fold hands and make laydowns postflop, which is why bluffing on low boards is better, even though I worded it badly, we're obviously not attacking them on every single pot postflop since getting post with a TAG isn't really ideal.
But it still stands to reason that attacking/bluffing them preflop is a great way to pick up chips, we simply won't stack them much postflop so it also stands to reason that we need to take alot of the smaller pots away from them preflop and also attack them sporadically on boards that do not hit their range much.
hopefully that clears it up, if you still disagree then lets get into a discussion about why.. and what is the best/general way to make money from these players.
