Day 2 I am now realizing it's good to be aggressive like how been doing. I have to incorporate being passive too and sometimes neither. Become that player that takes a line that completely throws off others. I'm enjoying the breakdowns in these sessions already.:D

Somewhere I'm hearing Teddy KGB say "You switched da gyears on me. Good hand"

You can win more pots , blinds and such but it's good to know when to switch it up can constant it through and win constantly

You're speaking of LAGs of course, yes? Its been my experience TAGs rise to the top more often than not.
No, I was talking about the aggressive way of playing. As for delays, yes - such tactics also have the right to life. But only if it leads to success.

Finished day 2....28 to go

Interesting course, in the last hand showned i would c-bet on the flop. But most likely it would be a mistake, i tend to play sometimes to aggressive, betting the flop, turn and river.

Yes you are right. Tags often win prizes. But Lag will cash in five times less often, and will play at the final table with a huge stack. What will you choose?

I like the subject of this lesson. Kind of like life - aggression versus passivity, and everything in between. The rationale for playing aggressively is something I can definitely identify with.

The last example was a bit confusing. I don't understand why checking on the flop isn't passive but calling on the turn is?

Must have been a mistake in this lesson since in the next lesson on ranges in the pdf book they refer to checking as a passive action.

"At the flop, his range is still almost as wide when he checks since that passive action also gives us very little information."

Again I enjoy the way colin explains this. One of my weaknesses I guess is that in a situation as shows see screenshot

Opponent mins bets.on the river. I guess I get fearful of a trap here. and probably flat this more often than I should

Aggression you say

Agression is Great. I have previously been in the wrong POSITION playing the Wrong cards, Wrong Opponents and lost my shirt. I am here to learn how to do it correctly, I really like the description of the positions including LOJACK.

me aggressive

I aggressive
good I think you have freedom always good because you can pull more pots.
However, there must be an analysis of the table position at the moment of the tournament.
in my opinion and so I use the most 70% aggressive and 30% table analysis.

I think that at high and medium stakes tables, players are more professional and can expect such aggression. So I would prefer to play aggressively only after the flop, with a senior hand. How reasonable can this be? Or when choosing an aggressive game, do you need to push initially?

This one actually really helped me because I have always been told I am FAR too agressive, and honestly I never thought of table placement vs hand vs EV. I'm really excited to see how the rest of my year and this training course go. I've also been listening to the podcast which is amazing.

im done with Day #2

Benefit of aggression doesnt mean that you have to aggressive always. but you already knew when you have to being neutral, when you have to being passive, and being passive. and of course still ranges and position.

i already combine practice day #1 dan practice day#2. in other word i used the power of position and benefit of aggression in the same time. and i sent the result my history. maybe some help correction around practice day 1 and 2 by my histories hand

thanks CC

But if I see my opponent is loose and has AQo and I don't bet the turn to check-raise. maybe I'd go all in on the river.

Being aggressive with a weak hand is not easy, sometimes even with a good hand against recreational players it ends up making it difficult, the fact is that they get to the allinn right away and with some luck they end up winning, good lesson on day 2, let's go to the 3rd day

Absolutely, contact us with any questions on the 2nd once you're ready!
Hi Colin
Well, after watching lesson 2, I am very clear about what it means to be an aggressive, neutral and passive player.
The truth is that at least I think I have a little bit of the 3 trends.
Although when I see the hands that you raise, it is clear to me that being aggressive when it has to be aggressive defines me quite well.
After seeing KJ's last hand and seeing how you play it... Preflop 3bet... flop check... turn check and call... and river check and raise increasing the Pot bet by 2 seeing your opponent's weak bet made me think that this is the real variant of betting, where your opponent retires.
Now my question is this, having read on a strategy portal that although as you say you must feel very comfortable with a passive player, in the event that this passive player enters a hand and is committed to the hand and makes call after call... Is it always advisable to show his aggressiveness to the last street??? Or is it advisable to always do the initial post-flop check to see what command determination your opponent makes?
I tell you this because there are many players who find yourself at tables where they take control of the action from the preflop, they seem to have an automation, whatever card comes out on the flop, although they don't even have a pair, their bet is a pot, on the turn 2 or more pots and on the river the allin if necessary.
How do you stop these types of attacks? with your hands very strong or is there any other strategy???
Thanks and regards to you and Katie.

it's better to watch this lesson again when you reach lesson number 27, where it says about check-raise, because aggressive play presupposes a check push

I like the concept of being aggressive to give opponents time to fold and you win the pot without a showdown. The hard part for me is making a large bet or raising on the turn if I miss the flop.
I like the takeaway that says if your opponent is doing something that makes if difficult for you to put that in your toolbox to use.
