Play the Player
and Table Position
Choose tables where players are seeing the flop
+40%, higher the better.
Sit at the
table ideally with loose players to your right and tight players
to your left.
Table selection is a hugely important factor if you are looking
to increase your win rate. Not only selection of the table you sit
and play at, but also your position on a given table. Where possible
you should be very selective on both counts. Ideally you want to
be siiting at tables with bad players who are limping in alot pre
flop with many bad hands. Some players like to play against loose
aggressive players, thats up to you, but whichever loose player
you prefer, you want them to be on your right so so that you can
raise these limpers with your good hands and are more often getting
action when you do get good hands. Or in the case of loose aggressive
you normally reraise and isolate there bad starting hands. If the
2 players to your left are tight, then you get more blind stealing
opportunities, or more iso raising opportunties.
Sometimes when reading some of the plays that can be made, either
directly on this site or in a forum thread you may then try to do
the same. However, when you try them they simply may not work or
be profitable in the long run. A very good reason for this is because
the good player will be playing at a table in the position where
an iso raise will actually result in a heads up pot more often.
If you try this is some games, you wil raise and get cold callers
or both blinds in. hen talking, the good player may not have factored
in how selective he actually was in his table selection.
Some players who have the time really take huge advantage of table
selection. They will datamine poker sites, have information on many
players at the limits they want to play at, then wait for the right
positions to come up at the tables that particular player is playing
at so they can take full advantage. This may be extreme for many,
but if you do play against particularly bad players, and the site
you are playing at has a buddy list, it is well worth adding them
and seeing if they are playing in the future and search for there
