On poker stars play chips, I am a shark, one of the biggest sharks in the ocean. :)
I doubt too many players have a bigger play chip bankroll, and recently I won the largest buy-in tournament that Poker Stars offers on the play chip side for us "free" Americans (that's a sick joke that isn't funny, but what else can we do but laugh at our idiot government for taking our freedom away?)

On ACR, I am a fish, I play at the micro level and don't win a lot. I'm not the worst fish on the site, but I'm certainly not having the same success as I have on Poker Stars.

So yes... we can be both a shark and a fish at the same time, it really just depends on who we are playing against, as the previous poster said.

How do you define whether you are a shark or a fish? Just about whether someone makes a profit or not? Or the style of play? I mean a maniac may play like a fish from the way he plays, but he can still make a profit for a certain period of time. In terms of the style of play, I would call myself a shark. I try to have a tight and aggressive style of play. So far I have remained without any real profit. Maybe I'm still making too many mistakes, maybe the variance in poker is just too great or a mixture of both.

I am neither one nor the other. I'm somewhere in the middle. Sometimes you have to act like a fish if there is no good card for a long time.

As a scuba diver, I have been close to sharks, but closer to other fish.

I have been playing poker for 4 years, but I do not consider myself a fish or a shark. Although I have pretty good results and my bankroll is growing every month, I understand that I am actually a beginner. However, I just can't consider myself a fish or a shark.

I can rightfully call myself a fish. So you have a good chance to beat me at the tournament tables.

Undoubtedly a shark. When I started playing, I was a fish)
Now I have a bad period in poker, the downstreak has begun. I hope to get out of it with less losses, both in psychology and in money. Peace for everyone!:)

I am somewhat new to poker and do not have all the terms down. I know this is a stupid question... But what is the exact meaning of each of those terms? Is slow playing a shark? Or is going after it aggressively? What is a fish?

most likely I look like a little shark, I play small tournaments and give him little fish.)))

Fish is someone who is new to the game, or it could be someone who has played a long time but never really learned the 'deeper wisdom' in poker and plays mostly for fun. A shark is hard to beat, someone who has put time and effort to the game, and usually wins in long term.

It is quite difficult to answer you specifically, but given my results I think I am a donkey. :D
