POKER PSYCHOLOGY

Understanding Poker Players

 

As you play poker online, understanding different players is very important. Most poker players fall into one of four categories, and once you're experienced enough, you'll be able to place your opponents into particular groups very quickly. You should try to pick up as much information as you can about a player to accurately place them into a category. But remember the boundaries of the different types of poker players are not clearly defined and the good pokers players can change their style of play very quickly to mislead the rest of the table.

Types of Poker Players:

Tight-Passive

A tight-passive player is one that won't raise or call unless they have a very strong hand. This type of player will seldom take a risk on their hand. If a tight passive player calls your raise you'd better have the courage to backup your bet.

Loose-Passive

Loose passive players are also known as "calling stations". They call any bet you place and it's best to avoid bluffing these players. They'll very seldom fold once they've seen the flop.

Tight-Aggressive

These players will only bluff occasionally. They only play good hands and once they've got that hand they'll bet aggressively. Beware, when this player raises he could end up taking a huge portion of your stack.

Loose-Aggressive

Some of the most famous poker players are loose aggressive. These players have no problem going "All-in", but the best loose-aggressive players will mix up their aggressive and passive play, it's hard to read their hands. They go All-in with a pair of aces or just a simple 7, 3. These are the high-rollers of Texas Holdem poker.

Now all you need to do is begin by placing your opponents in one of the above categories, then go to our poker rooms and see if you can spot the different types of poker players and then play your strategy accordingly.

I am a late entrant into poker world and at 43 years of age, double the age of a lot of players on the tourney circuit. I am a Private Equity Fund Manager and poker is a passion for me!! I have now been playing for over 4 years now - both cash and tournament games. My background in investing made me adapt to the game fast. The approach of studying the game through books, courses (Nick Petrangelo, raiseyouredge) online videos and bit of coaching from Prabhat Mukherjea.. all played a part in preparing me for this. This win is a testimony that poker is not gambling and hard work pays off.
