This is a discussion on How you play poker, aggressive, moderate or very bluffing. within the online poker forums, in the General Poker section; I like to play sparingly, and with a bit of bluff, do not like to play aggressive and not so like player.
Generally I like to default to textbook tight-aggressive, and only open up my range / go for bluffs when a player at my table gives me a good reason to. If I notice someone playing overly tight I will open up against them, and conversely if I'm against a cannon or a calling station I will happily camp and try to maximize value from strong hands.
I think I am a passive player, but the right hands I think I need to learn a lot ... sometimes you think you know some things and then when the results are in a tailspin you have to learn to rethink what is wrong ... the best and the best that I will integrate into my game is the best of the 4 styles.

Everyone hates an aggressive player. That is because he puts the pressure on you to make a decision. But aggressive is the way to play if you want to win. Position Aggression Observation Knowledge. Those are the keys to winning poker.
I can discuss politics, religion and play poker without getting emotional.
I cannot say that I am a poker player who follows the same pattern at the table every time. I change the way I play depending on the tournament, depending on the opponents, depending on my mood at the time. I read that some players tag players that if they meet at the game table they know how to approach the game against them ... I'm not saying it's a bad thing but I don't think you play the same style of play every time! So to give an answer as to my style of play I think it is - multiplayer.
I usually play moderately. If I have a large stack, I can play a little more aggressively, this is if I play MTT or SNG. If I play heads up or spin and go, then I try to play aggressively, in these disciplines the more aggressive you play, the more chances there are for success. In general, I like to play calmly.
I think that a good player is good not because he is tight, loose, agressive or passive. I think good players take good decisions and more than that, the best decisions. I prefer to see poker as an activity we can't change anything, I like to see it as an investing. We just have to go in an operation when the tendencies are good for us. So when there is no good tendencies, we go to the beach and drink some beers. No hurt.
re: Poker & How you play poker, aggressive, moderate or very bluffing.
It depends on the situation to be aggressive or a little passive, or it is my way of playing that at the beginning I play a little conservative to be able to identify the people that it will be easy to remove chips and there I upload a bit of intention (agressive)
I think that you have to play the way that the table is dictating you to play. Pay attention to the other players on the table and figure out whose aggressive, whose tight and who bluffs and adjust your game accordingly.
I try play opposite the table. If they are tight, I try play aggressive and if they play aggressive, I try play tight. When I change tables, I try play tight until I understand how the other players play.
I play the opposite of what other people are playing. If they are playing tight, I will be aggressive. If the table is full of loose players, then I will play tight. I will play at least 10 minutes to figure out who the calling station players are, then I would not bother bluffing those players. I will only try to bluff players that are tight.
