This is a discussion on How do you play against these players?? within the online poker forums, in the Learning Poker section; Want to here you guys opinions on how to play against the following players:
2. Semi TAGs who love to slow roll
playing against a loose agressive player is my favorite type of player to play against because you just have to wait until you catch a beast hand and slow play it against the loose aggressive player. Playing against a semi tag player is a bit more difficult for me to play against. I would say that bluffing comes in handy against TAGS because most of the time they are not going to hit top pair or even a better hand and are going to fold if you bet 2x the bb. I think you have to get a TAG on a beast hand or a pre-flop all in holding aa or kk.
If it is a question of cache - all is easier. We have no threat to fly out of the tournament losing one or two hands. A lost stack can always be bought. Therefore, my strategy will be this:
Wait for a good hand. A really good, ready-made hand like QQ + and play decisively with it on the stack. In most cases against the Arab League, we will be ahead.
Depending on the position as we sit at the table, we can play more widely against other players. If our LAS is not enough preflop is aggressive (there are such nedol-lags). We play more widely with suited connectors, for example.
