Be aggressive, does anyone agree with that?

The more aggressive you play, the greater the chances of winning the hand. This is because aggressive players who can make their opponents fold when the pot is big and while they still have the best hand

When I play poker in tournament I'm aggressive so i can build more stack, after building my stack I play tight up to the final table.

While aggression is certainly a key factor, there are no 'one size fits all' answers in poker, if you deploy the aggression card at the wrong table at the wrong time:- you're more than likely going to buy yourself a direct ticket on the express train to Lobbyville.

I would argue that there are both more and less important factors than aggression but the key to success lies in being aware of, and utilising, as many of them as you can (given observation and analysis of the variable circumstances you find yourself in) at any given time.


How's that for a succinct little bowl of word salad!? :laugh:

Situation-dependent.

I believe it depends on the opponent. If you play against passive tight or passive loose players it can work most of the time, but when you get a TAG or a LAG you will probably lose heavily. Finally, know when and against what. betting is the key to a balanced game.

Be aggressive if your cards allows that.
You cant be aggressive with 7 2.Or you can't be aggressive with 8 3.
So good answer is if you can use your cards for aggressive play,then do it.

Well, I don't understand why we're not turning aggression level to 999% in games like CC freerolls?? Why waste 3hours of life time for a chance to win 20$ for the first place??, while all participants can simply push all-in with any two cards during first 10 minutes and that's it.

Premium hands: Aggressive, but not before the flop.
Solid hands: Semi aggressive
mediocre hands: Low Calls and checks only to see if my hand is playable
Dead hands: Fold fast and loud.

I'm an aggressive player, I just can't play any other way, it's not a tactic, I guess I just have this character

Its a good strategy, but you wont win always this way, i think a patience opponent can win you sometimes

sometimes is the best way to play against tight players, but you have to know when to stop being aggro. If you keep playing agressive, your enemy will understand that you play with many hands and most of them is not a strong hand as a tight player hand

For sure. Probabl the best advice I got from a ggod poker player who was showing me the ropes was. Raise or fold! Calling is for loosers.

everyone has their own strategy. Someone is playing aggressive and gaining a large stack. And someone plays passively and carefully and also picks up the stack.
