I’d suggest either being patient and going up against him with strong, premium and monster hands or alternatively widening your range and going toe to toe, depending how well they play post flop.

Perhaps a combination of both using the former OOP and the latter in position would probably be good too.

I think it's worth punishing him for such an old couple JJ or KQ AK to know you can't play like that I think you'll do it next time and punish him;)

I didn't understand your question, but what can I say, be patient, wait for a good hand and pay back

As long as he is first to act...play your game.

Want to shut him down? just wait for a showdown and you see him get a genuine hand home. When he raises the following hands re-raise him with connectors or high cards. He hasn't got a hand ,every hand, and so as long as you have decent cards bully him when you think he's weak

if he raises 9 hands out of 10 it's obvious he hasn't strong hand most of the time you can't be dealt 9 hands straight from 10 a good hand , so maybe 2 or 3 times he gets a good hand but in general you should play and don't afraid of his hands , i would re raise him and put pressure even more to show strength and by this kind of play you will intimidate and will get advantage of him most of the time you will be the winner good luck

I played in a live tournament last weekend, I play at casino rama which is a 2 hour drive from where I live. It was fun and exciting, I placed 13th out of 360 players. Had a few drinks it was good, I can't wait to played in another one. I played so well , had so much patience for the hands I won. I love the tournament with pocket kings, against AJ. An Ace came on the river, for the player who knocked me out. I will always play the way I play even though he got really lucky, it's poker and that's what happens so much. You can only play your best , but if others catch the cards they need to win. Hard to beat someone who has the hot seat, but I loved the tournament so I'll be playing in one again cause it was so much fun.

I met a player like this once. That's what I did. I waited for any pair or more or less good hands to come and put him all in. I managed to knock him out of the game 4 times. After that, he started crying himself and started playing more quietly.

What limit are you playing at? $1/2, 1/3, 2/5? If you're playing the lower limits such as $1/2-$2/5 NLH then expect at least one player at the table to be playing somewhat aggressive who isn't really trying to, necessarily, win the pot pf but just wants to be heads-up to a flop (which is what every player wants) and then play you out of it. That's how they play where I am, especially at low limits and early stages of tourneys.
To combat this is usually going to require patience and a nice starting hand in position. If the agg-raiser is on your left, then a float or check-raise situation might be the way to go. Hope this helps. GL.

Hello brother.
One of our friends tells the truth.
He can't have all hands monster hands or something.
He waits for your opportunity, and reraises strong.
If it is a cash table, have an economic back, because the showdown will not always benefit you.
The ideal would be for me to play preflop. Strong reraises with good cards in your hand.
The other might be to call with strong hands and see the flop that is beneficial to you. Example a hand QQ in your hands just call, and if the flop comes 4 7 J for example, you are running with the advantage. There try to see the positions, always if possible play these hands in CO or BTN so that you have the final answer to your bet.
In truth, this situation is very difficult, my friend, because these players are generally recreational, and they play poker as if they were playing in a slot, they don't care, they just play luck. And the worst problem is that many times this luck favors them.
It happened to me many years ago at a unibet poker table that I found a player of this style. I remember that I recharged 20 Euros 3 times and the 3 times I won the all-in with AA and he with garbage.
After that I directly left the table because without a doubt it was not my day.
That's why I recommend that you play it very carefully, not with fear, eh, carefully.
My regards, brother:giggle::giggle::giggle::giggle::):):):)
