Looking for your poker style
Even a brief observation of the game of poker allows you to understand that each player has a certain set of techniques and ways to play.
And despite all their diversity, poker playing styles can be divided into several types:
1. by the number of entries depending on the starting hand:
2. in relation to the size of the rates:
Knowing what styles of poker players are used by players will allow their opponent to prepare for and develop countermeasures for the actions characteristic of these styles. This is the key to a successful game, without which any progress of the game is possible. Without going deep into the details, let us dwell on each of the species.
The aggressive style game is characterized by frequent increase and re-raise of stakes in the process of drawing a hand. Such actions are designed primarily for passive opponents who are psychologically incapable of resisting aggression and forced to fold. A positive feature of this style of poker is maximizing possible profits.
The passive game is a rare raise in poker rates, even with a strong hand. Such a game has lower risks due to small playable banks, but it also has a minimum mathematical expectation of winning.
A characteristic feature of the style is the entrance to the banks only with a strong hand. Such a player enters the bank quite rarely, losing small amounts due to the blinds in poker and ante. However, wins with strong poker hands compensate for these losses and bring significant winnings.
A tight game is considered to be the most profitable style, with minimal chances of losing and maximizing winnings. It is the best poker strategy against aggressive and loose opponents. A tight game against tight opponents, as a rule, does not bring high results, which forces them to play more flexibly, adjusting to their opponents.
Loose poker style of play involves frequent entries into banks with a large range of starting hands. When playing tight players, he brings small but frequent wins, which are ensured by the fact that they rarely go into the banks. This style is characterized by a greater number of bluffs in poker. The style is justified when playing with a weak and inexperienced opponent, but in a game with experienced opponents is always losing.
