Novice players, read the "bible" of poker, such as Harrington volumes, learn to play a tight style. It is right. Low limits dictate a cautious, a neat play on the map with the maximum profit from the good hands.
But after a while novices will learn that a few can be played in a different way and that, allegedly, there is a style called "loose", which brings a lot of money. It is also true, but partially.
And yet, what poker beginners stick style, and how to find a middle ground?
.. i think most new players tend to play either an overly tight style or and overly loose style , generally i think tight aggressive is prob better to start out with then you can mix it up later when you are more comfortable with playing the game , also i think it depends where or who you're playing , freerolls or micros will be crazy
For any novice player a tight style of play is undoubtedly the best choice. Now a lot of literature and videos about poker strategy is on the Internet. And every player in the future he chooses for himself this or that game tactics. To argue what the best strategy is not correct. Everywhere has its pluses and minuses. I think for all novice players learn important to maintain discipline. This applies not only to new players. Discipline must be in the game and bankroll management.
Good luck in the game and life
I am a beginner and I play a poker at the same time conservative and aggressive (tight-aggressive). Play strong hands and give up weak hands, bet and raise, and rarely pay. I look forward to profitable situations and take advantage of them. In addition to this basic poker strategy, it is also important to gather information about my opponents' game to facilitate decision making.
Thats depend of your position more then an particuliar emotion of winning lolll. Big pair big draw agressif. No draw no pair = just call and fold loll. Also its depend of the other player. If you notice a crazy guy go all in with K-7 off proflop ........ Dont play to loose with a guy like him. Go with big hand against him. And dont worry to reraise. And thats depend if you want to win or just play. have a nice day
Early position decisions pre flop in full ring games are mostly mathematical . Late seat moves are more about style and knowledge of your opponents range and their image of you . Tournament play bounces back and forth between the two depending on position ,blind size , stack sizes , bubble factors , etc . I think correct mathematical play is much more important in tourneys; at times every choice is critical !
I personally think to start of with, most players are a bit loose. They like to try to play every hand in fear they might miss a winner. If you have done a bit of studying first tho, your going to find your cash will stretch further. Playing tight passive online is your best option to start. Watch other players closely on bet sizing and what's in there calling range etc. Once you have a feel for the table increase your aggression. You can loosen up when your stack allows you (double the amount of your opponents). Hope that helps good luck.
I am not so sure now . In the past I would say TAG for sure . Now I think if you are a beginner , then yes TAG is the best , and if you play at the micros , at least at the early stages . But I am starting to believe that I have to learn to play more loose , to use this style when I need it , when the blinds are low , when they increase fast , when I have big stack , if I want to play more aggressively . So for a summary , I think a style more loose than the usual TAG is needed in tournaments to be succeded , how loose and when , with what cards on what spot , with what odds , is sth the good and best players know and take advantage . I have to study a looot more to know .
