The best poker style is that make you win chips. There's no perfect style, there are styles for some people, and styles for other.
O no ricardo?

There are four styles: loose-aggressive, loose-passive, tight-passive, and
tight-aggressive. Tight-aggressive is the best style, as long as you are not too tight or too aggressive. However, you need to adjust your strategy based on how the players at your table play.

Isn't the best style having no style? .... I mean ... If you categorise yourself it's not bad, but if your opponent can see through you and see what type of player you are, then you are dead meat
so, I think the best way to play is to be ever changing, and make your opponent underestimate your power ("The Art of War")
but well ... what do I know? ... I'm just a beginner ( :trytofly: )

I believe in aggression, and will only slow play the nuts. Super tight at the start of a tourney works, as long as you remember to change it up and play the middle cards and suited connectors. I don't slow play high pairs as they get beat 50% of the time if you let too many opps in the hand.

Most people, in my own opinion, misunderstand what it means to play tight. Tight doesn't, necessarly, mean playing premium hands only - it means simply being selective on the hands you play and when. Position and who's in the pot should generally effect what hands you'll play (as well as blinds/stacks).

But of all styles, aggression is what wins most of the money. This, also, doesn't mean always betting. It means betting when you smell weakness and/or have a hand. Though, if you bet whenever you get a hand and check whenever you've missed, you'll be easy to read. On occassion you'll have to slow play as well as bluff. If you seldom bluff, you should probably show it - just to keep them guessing. On the other side of the coin, if you're better at playing people, you'll want to show your good hands. Basically create an image opposite of how you normally play.

But whichever style you like best, you'll need to change how you're playing based on how the table is playing. I've heard professionals recommend playing the opposite as the rest of the table - if they're playing tight then play loose and vice versa. This is especially true in no limit. The question should be, "how am I going to play this person", as apposed to, "how am I going to play the cards I'm getting cards".

The best style is play poker, no tells and lots of pots,

But you must keep to your game plan, everyone has one I think well I do, and if you stick to it it shoulld work, unless you go on tilt.

I dont think in style, I play each hand according to what I have & whats on the table. If you get into a style I think you will limit your playing ability.:)

to change it up and shift gears is the best style, play unpredictable so that ur opponents cannot read you

Generally if the table is loose, play tight. If the table is tight play more aggressive. At least that's what good old Doyle says.

Playing aggressive

When you are against players who are tight and seem to fold everytime you put a big bet up against them, I think you should play with an aggressive style. Vice Versa. When you are playing against an aggressive player you should sit back until you get cards that you know you can win with and try to trap him.

simple quote: "if tight table, play loose, if loose table, play tight" this is a pretty obvious phrase, but how many of you actually go by it?

playing styles

:tongue:
when you break it down to bear bones there's two "styles" of play aggressive or conservative it's the ability to disguise that separates the weak from the strong don't be readable have heart to raise with crap and balls to come over the top of the chip leader with or without a hand I believe if you don't have a "poker sixthsense" then I want you at my table every time...hahahahahahahhaha:vroam:

I think your style depends upon the type of game your playing, I find ill play tighter in holdem games but loser in omaha, stud and draw games becasue your options vary so much from game to game. And then within that I judge on how people are playing and change my style from that

The best style is no style--no predictability. You've got to switch up your play and you should do it often--or, rather, play consistently inconsistent :rolleyes: Again, the more unpredictable you are, the more you take an aspect of the game away from the other players at the table--they can't read you, or they can't read you well. Of course, there is something to be said for using predictability to your advantage: Play loose, then tight to trap, or vice versa...good luck everyone.

There is no "best" style. Only a timely mixture of styles can be considered the best way to play. Like it was previously stated, a good player will catch on if you are too consistant.

the best style is being lucky it appears

you can play a hand tight, loose, or even perfect but you will still lose to luck half the time

It depends on how the other players play. If someone is being over aggressive you can't sit by and let him take all the chips, you have to step it up a bit or catch him bluffing once or twice.

When is an all-in preflop warranted other than extremely short stacked?
