long long posts, lets hope I get it all...
And what are you doing up at 7am on a Saturday morning anyway???
Boys obv waking very early up... Baby boy at 5am - good that it's gf's job, big boy at 6.30am, Bah... but well he's sick atm so obv slept alot friday.
Helps though . Gotta VB those LP-types.
However playing LP/Maniac types can be extremely frustrating. You may have noticed in our little vid how Isac and I were able to pinpoint tight players' hand-ranges really well but couldn't do the same for the looser players and ended up playing vs ranges. Due to the fact we like to think of ourselves as good players it's extremely frustrating when you can't read someone who's incredbily bad at poker yet ends up busting you up for an hour or so straight. This games is horrifically cruel at times.
100% agree, talked with Aldine bout Maniacs the other day, he sad "leave - there's better tables" = 100% sure when you got no real strategy vs them, is they 3bet bluffing the turn or do they have the nuts, it's the same play... But long term we should take their money. LP's are good to have IMO, just make sure they are to the right of you, if not they gotta be fit/fold postflop, we are very happy for them to just call down with anything - cus they got many many more none bad calldowns than TP - NUTS.
Indeed. 100% support and group hugs available always.
Oh btw Isac, posted on my blog recently and found the same opinion on 2+2 that euro sites are a lot more aggressive than US-friendly sites. Not saying the players are better but they're more randomly aggressive which leads to higher variance and since Euor sites have higher rake that bumps everything up again. Was wondering what you thought about that?
FWIW from sweating Isac a couple sessions I agree that Euro fish are more aggro in weird spots/ bluffy
As you know I haven't spend much time on US sites, so got no self-experience. But from what I've seen you guys do at FTP and PS you are 100% right. My own little theory off many off those players is that they are former NL-players who never beated the games they were playing, now they try LHE cus it's cheaper (not really but what people think it is) and probably because they feel that their either LP- or maniac play can make them big winners. So as I've said earlier, I gotte turn down my laggyness (thank to Adri ) and play much more ABC-poker.
