How to Utilize 3 Different Types of Poker Players
Our goal in poker is to make as much money as possible. For this to happen, we need to exploit as many types of poker players as possible. The important thing is knowing what type of player your opponent is and how to adjust your game to counter his playing style.
In this article, you will learn How to Utilize 3 Different Types of Poker Players.
Loose Aggressive Players ( LAG )
LAG is the abbreviation for ‘loose aggressive.’ LAGs play a lot of hands, and they play them aggressively.
They are like maniacs with a dose of self-control.
Good LAGs are found mostly on high steaks and their winnings are generated mostly post-flop.
Post Flop, he makes the right decision in marginal situations to get the most out of his hands.
His free choice of starting hand is what puts him in these marginal situations on and after the flop.
His opponents often underestimate him, thinking he is a maniac, but he knows what he is doing.
Making a big fold is a very risky choice in terms of how much money is at stake and its impact on your profits.
You should only do this in specific situations.
VPIP of >43% coupled with a preflop raise frequency of > 8% (100+ hands)
Flop, Turn c-bet in single raised pots in the position of >55% (1500+ hands)
Flop, Turn, River betting frequency of >42% (1500+ hands)
TAGS – (TIGHT-AGGRESSIVE)
TAG is the abbreviation for ‘tight-aggressive,’.
Tight aggressive players mostly use the advantages of their position and have a very solid Preflop game. Once you’ve mastered the strategy, you just have to ask yourself where your game is weak. The same applies to such an opponent.
When to Use This Exploit
When playing online, you should look out for the following statistics:
3-bet button versus cutoff stat <12% (600+ hands)
Overall 3-bet of <9% (500+ hands)
MANIACS – Loose Players Who Bet 3bet Aggressively
This type of player is mostly amateurs, they do not follow any strategies and do not look at poker as a game but as a gamble and are mostly at the table to play mosquito. Against this type of player, you have to be patient and wait for your strong hand and they will give themselves to you. We recommend that you avoid bluffs and play solid preflop ranges.
Exploitation is an integral part of the game and brings in most of the money. It is extremely difficult to improve because determining the type of player is very specific to each player. If you want to be among the best, you have to work hard to become good at identifying exploitation opportunities and to be able to build your range to avoid being exploited.
