Weak-Passive Poker: Why Calling So Often Can Be Your Biggest Leak
re: Poker & Amanda Botfeld discusses weak-passive poker
"So, what is the most passive action in poker? Calling." disagree - lurking in the weeds, feeling out a player in a game of chicken... ..the most passive "action" is the one requiring the least thought and least initiative Consider playing quads or better..your actions are skewed to maximizing your gain exclusively without consideration to the safety of your bankroll or continued survival in the game. Calling increases equity and creates a honey pot.
Folding takes great discipline and is often the sign of a seasoned player. -disagree ..a player folding repeatedly can mean a tight player or a cash player who is multi-tabling 30 games - there is no real discipline here except metrics but can be a sign of a seasoned player if you can look them up and discover that fact. Folding must be taken into context along with assessed card range, bluffs..etc..perhaps an elaboration on the term "seasoned?"
You may find it interesting that checking is labeled as neutral. Neutral or meta-stable?...checking in the wrong place or at the wrong time can spell disaster. This "action" can either lose you a pot or it can safeguard a win or mitigate a loss..though not a big one. For me such an action is context dependent and can be an inflection point..f(x)''=0 with an associated "if then..(computer CASE construct)" of the hand being played out.
