There are various ways to describe the styles of poker players. The
most common segregation is to split them into extremes such as:
Styles and hands
- Player Style descriptions
- Tight/Aggressive style
- Starting Hands
- Playing the flop
- Playing the turn and river
Odds and Outs
- Count your Outs
- Pot Odds
- Odds on the Turn and River
- Using Percentages
- Bet sizing, expressed versus implied odds
Rules and terms
- How to play a game
- Poker hand rankings
- Terminology and definitions
For futher study
- No Limit Hold’em starting hands; the Next Generation
- My Aces got cracked!
- Can I fold KK preflop?
- How to play JJ?
- Playing AK, Big Slick
- Should I move up to avoid the bad players? Part I
- Way ahead / Way behind
- What is ABC poker?
hear these player types referred to by names: Loose/Aggressive =
Maniac, Loose/Passive = Calling Station, Tight/Passive = Rock, or other
equivalent names. Don't worry about the names, what's important is how
the person plays and what that style means.
By categorizing players by playing style we can draw a guess as to how strong their hand is as well as a guess as to how we expect them to act or react. We then use this information to help determine how to play against each type of player.
