if you are a tighter player you can raise and show your cards at the end of the hand , just to gain credibility and after that you can extract chips easier.
Good old Gus, poker has changed a lot. He was at one time considered a "good" player. I guess Chris Moneymaker was also....
Gus's strategy of raising 60% of the hands doesn't seem to work too well.
I think ANY strategy will work short term
, that's just variance. You can play really loose and win, but you will ultimately lose in the long run. Gus is the poster boy for that.
I also think on the other side of the spectrum, if you play too tight, you will lose (just blind out or have AA cracked). You should find a medium and switch back and forth from loose to tight depending on the tournament/cash table. This is where you need to play "your game" which should always be changing and evolving.
