A milestone: Post No. 1000
Above: The cover of Card Player magazine dated Jan. 11.
The following advice is from ca$h-game player Andrew Seidman (shortened and slightly paraphrased):
There are three player types. I look for Bad-Aggressive players. They are easy to spot: They raise far too large, they're in every pot, and they show down hands like J-4 offsuit. I know there's a limited time until they're going to bust.
The next player type is the Bad-Passive player. They don't put money in the pot with total air. They only lose large amounts of money when they make a hand, but you make a better one. Beating this type player is easy, but it takes a while. They're easy to spot: They open limp a lot and they miss value bets with their strong hands. These players are often older and sit without a full stack.
Then there are the Good-Aggressive players. They never open-limp, always keep a full stack, often reraise preflop, push heavily with their draws, etc.
After an orbit or two, I can usually put everyone into one of the three categories, and make a plan of attack from there.
