This is a discussion on playing styles in poker within the online poker forums, in the Learning Poker section; What is in your opinion the most efficient way of playing in poker? Or what is your personal style, And why?
I'd categorize it in 4:
I think a tight aggressive style of play is the most useful in poker because we play few hands but aggressively, so we can make the most of our hands. But it's worth changing the style of play, so you won't be able to figure out our game.
In the beginning my game evolved over time from one to another before settling into more of a hybrid approach that I use now.
I was a fish who tightened up to a nit until I learned to play a good tight/aggressive strategy. Now I have added the GTO approach with exploitative tendencies in certain situations against certain types of players.
Tight agreesive works but you have to make sure most of your opponents arnt mainly all loose players calling stations. I think its best to read and see how all your opponents play and play vs that. not my cards vs theirs.
I think rather than being off on its own, exploitative is a combination of the others. Against some v's aggressive will be the best, against others GTO will likely lead to winning more hands, some tables you might have to play really loose or really tight. You should constantly be adapting and to adapt is to exploit so exploitative is my answer but my definition of exploitative is that it is all the categories together
I have great bankroll management, it started at $0 and it's still at $0
