This is a discussion on I'm learning to be agressive within the online poker forums, in the Learning Poker section; I've been studying poker a lot and one thing that I have to say is RAISE.Pay attention to the players that raise they are always
Raising can help you take down pots early, reduces the chances of players with worse hands beating you because you've made it more expensive for them to enter the hand. If you have a good hand, you want to get as much money into the pot as you can.
A lot of people say playing a TAG (Tight-AGgressive) game is the best way to learn to play. You play tight to minimize losses, but when you do play a hand you play it aggressively to maximize profits. Some things you may want to research (even doing a search here on CardsChat) are opening hands, three betting, c-betting (continuation betting), hand ranges, and shoving. I think those are the fundamental skills to TAG play. Is there a good TAG player out there who would recommend something else?
I'm new. and when I decided to try to play aggressively, I saved up a big stack, and I thought that I had learned to play))) but after a while I lost. aggression needs a lot of experience and knowledge))
First of all, you need to correctly use the tactics of an aggressive player and have a good card at the same time, otherwise you will fail and you will only reduce the stack. I try to be less aggressive.
It all depends on which type of tournaments you play. I believe that an aggressive game is not the best strategy for slow tournaments. I usually try to play cautiously, with only strong cards, using the position at the table.
Aggressive play is good as long as you know when to apply it. I'm an aggressive player but follow a strict set of hand ranges and positions to play them in. Also, you need to know when to fold. It's easy for beginners to trap themselves into thinking they can bet their way out of a beat, but that's really risky.
The art of aggressive play is centered by discipline, so learn your starting hands and how to open with them, and you'll do fine.
I had to learn this long ago. Interestingly, the passive style of play is more complicated and risky. Of course, aggressive gaming is also risky, but you don't give any additional rounds to your opponent.
Have to have deep stack to be successfully at aggressive strategy. I call this guy the agressive raiser/bettor
Seen this guy who had a monster chip over everyone else in the table and was raising the players to fold. Basically if he smelled weakness to fold he would raise big enough for all their stack or most of their chips after the flop.
Most of guys were afraid to be felted and folded
I have seen a few really good players who are successfully playing tight and passive
Basically I call passive callers. They seem to be able to smell out that other player is pushing/shoving weak and call with a good hand but not a nut hand and most time they are right
This takes more skill in my opinion but harder to play
Its more fun being agressive better and letting the other fellow think.
I dont need to learn to be aggressive be aggressive is something in my nature but in the poker table the best you can do to get information from another player in beting chips so my advice be aggressive and play like a pro .
The one consistent thing I've always read is if you want to be involved in a pot do not limp. If someone else has raised and your hand isn't super strong you can go with their bet. But if you have a huge hand like AA, AK, KK, etc then you should consider 3-betting.
Being aggressive isn't just betting and raising, its about putting your opponents to a decision. Making your opponent make decisions allows them the opportunity to make mistakes which should deliver chips to your stack.
