This is a discussion on New kid in town, starting off in a new site.. within the online poker forums, in the Learning Poker section; If you decide to try a new site, where you are an unknown quantity, how should you build a table image? Just play the games
If you decide to try a new site, where you are an unknown quantity, how should you build a table image? Just play the games you are best at,.NLHE, for example? And maybe splash around, bully, speculate at the micro/free level, to balance out any success you have playing your best strategy.
In closing, does anybody think table image is more or less important at sites that don't have as much traffic as others?
just play your game. Building an image maybe is effective in occasional live games, but online just play your a-game, because you can never meet same players again on the tables. And if you do, because they play a lot, so what's the point with building the image of a nit or aggro player. People are smarter nowadays, they will adapt to you faster and you can earn less money because you tried something new. Just focus to play your best.
I don't think building an image is hugely important, with so many people playing online, you aren't likely to run into the same people hugely often. Playing at a new site, I would recommend sticking to what you are best at and play your usual game.
re: Poker & New kid in town, starting off in a new site..
I would not worry about your image, Most of the time your not going to play the same players and when you do on the occasion they probably wont remember your playing style, I play on a private site and even though we play each other all the time the only time they notice what my image is, is when i make a change in the current game we are playing.
Hi. I would say just start playing. Table image is important at every table you play at. If your playing to aggressive, well players will see that and play accordingly. If you play too tight, players see that and play accordingly. The way I started was playing a learning from my mistakes. I think thats the best way to go about it.
