Bad Poker Players

Hello,

Every weekend my brother and his friends get together and play poker. It is a $5 buy in winner take all. It just seems that no matter how much money is on the line some people just play any 2 cards. I play the player you know I look at betting patterns, how fast the bet is made, how was the bet placed and so forth. Example

I have AK offsuit and raise 4 times the big blind in the first postion at full table

Flop: 7 10 7

I play very agressive and moved all in and got called.

He had 7 8 offsuit.

I do not see the point in raising against these opponenets. Help

Just got to play ABC poker and show down the winning hand.

The only way he was going to call that all in bet was if he had you beated.

Play the good hands, don't bluff and you will take down the money.

I agree with grumble with all the new players out there it makes it really hard to bluff. I have quit as much bluffing as i used too just for that reason. Sort of took on a new strategy lately if i have the hand play it pretty aggressive if i dont i get out. Been burned to many times where I bet on mediocre hands like i had them and some inexperienced player calls and gets his card and im out

Simple but true don't bluff if you are the better player you will win more against these guys than you lose. btw 7,8 isn't teriible hand to see a flop with

Here are some of the types of players online and all around........Morons, Retards, Dreamers, Chasers, Speeders, Conservative, Ragtastic.......Most of the players online are ****ing retarded morons who catch dream cards, chase insiders/flushes, bet all in at a 50 dollar pot and speed with ace rag and suckout, the ones who fold if they dont see two paint or any high pocket pair which is myself and the idiots that raise with 96 offsuit and crack pocket kings/aces........If you are any of the above mentioned that are not conservative, go **** yourself, throw out your computer, and forget everything you have ever learned about poker. Most of these players are the ones who watched the WPT last night and thought they were a pro overnight. Im just sick of shit heads who think they know everything in 1 day, when I have been playing for 12 years and still have so much to learn.

I stick to regular home games because online poker has some pretty reckless players who just get lucky.

At home, at least you can pick up more tells, giving you a better winning frequency if your experienced.

It's an interesting thought that the influx of newbie poker players has actually made winning harder than before the popularity of the WPT and wsop. For a seasoned poker player you just have to recognize who you are playing against and adjust your strategy accordingly. Quality play over time will beat luck.

Its an unfortunate reality that they want to hang around its even worse online. But you are on the right track by studing their style. After the flop you would be better of to check to them to see if they hit their number. with an AK if you don't hit on the flop and you know you have players at the table willing to sit in with anything then you need to proceed with the same caution you would with a low pair (22 33 44).

I am with you I find it very hard to play with bad players as it is incredibly hard to read them. You have to find a hand where you have the nuts then raise all in.

I know it's not the miracle advice you're looking for--but my advice is to stop playing with them. Loose players are their own breed and if you want to enjoy the game with them, then you need to get drunk and say "i don't care" and match their style. You just can't approach it any other way. If people will play any two cards and you play tight, then over time they will probably lose, but that still doesn't mean you'll have fun playing.

Jag....you were out of position man. Betting all in on a board like that out of position (OOP) is a mistake. You want to control the betting, so a 1/2 pot bet there would have been better, or 1/4 pot, or simply check. Letting AK go when it doesn't hit the flop is likely a good play there simply because he could have hit his set of 10's which is an even more likely hand to call a raise with pre-flop.

Bad players=Bad beats

Only play the good hands, don't reach, and when you know you have the hand won, push it hard. They'll prob call you with 2nd pair. And if an ace flops and u can't beat aces,FOLD. These players love aces, they'll call 5 times the blinds with A4o

There are many ways that you can bankrupt the
bad players at your table.

1. Fake Weakness
2. Destroy Their Game Plan
3. Show No Respect For Weak Bets
4. Face Bad Players "Heads Up"
5. Always Have A Decent Hand

A good player will suffer many more bad beats than a bad one. You will get out drawn much more often because you will be starting with a better hand than your opponent which means if you can look at the big picture you will have made money while the other player will have stolen money out of his wife's purse several times already to keep playing. :)

Patience is the key to playing these players. Take time to watch the table before you sit in at the table. play only good starting hands and be willing to fold them if you miss the flop. you will crack these players in time. Remember luck runs out skill doesn't.

Ive seen EVERYTHING playing @ UB u can have bullets and push all in there will be somebody calling ya. With no value to the FAKE CHIPS people have nothing to loose and @ UB the site gives u 1000 chips once ur bankrupt anyway so there no incentive to keep them in ur stack when its low, poker stars have 3 rebuys an hour for fake chips (I THINK) that helps a little but there are still the people that JUST DONT CARE it seems. My suggestion is get the CREDIT CARD out put in 25 bucks and try the real money games players value THEIR chips because they actually have VALUE and whats 25 bucks. you will waste $25 somewhere else and not have near as much fun doing it.
