I know alot of you guys watch that show and I wanted to talk about how loose they play. My style is mainly tight aggressive and I always thought that was the safest way of making money ,although loose aggressive does work if you are very good. However , I see these pros raising with trash and 'cold calling' raises , which I believed to be one of the worst things to do in poker. Lets say that I am at a table and somebody from early position raised , I would fold KJ because I would be 'cold calling' when my hand is not that strong. Yes I know these are all pros and they are really good at reading people but they throwing big stacks like its pennies. I just thought these players would be a bit tighter and not play like Gus Hansen , all of them. It makes me think maybe I should loosen up a bit because I used to make more money when I first started playing and when I learned poker I became more tight and now I am not winning as much. I think I am better then alot of online players at reading situations so I just have to becareful and not play too many hands. This goes against what I have read in the few poker books I own but I also see alot of bad play online that maybe calling a raise with 98s is profitable when you hit your draw and get paid for it. What do you guys think about HSP and what I just said?
