Various Types of Players in this Game of Poker

When you start playing poker you do not have much idea about it. Gradually you start liking certain styles of poker and that style becomes your trademark. Some people play really tight and some people love to play in an aggressive way with their bets. They raise and reraise when the other players try to find some successful strategies so that they can make their bets strong and play tight.  

One cannot stay with one strategy only. If you feel comfortable in certain strategy then too you need to come out of your comfort zone and take some risk sometimes. The great players never stick with one strategy and they always try to master as much as they can. They know if they are playing with strong opponents then they cannot survive for long without trying different strategies. The great players can adjust their playing styles according to the situation and need. Now, we are going to discuss about strategies and players types. You will also know how to handle different player types properly.


Normally one takes some time to think before raising and reraising. The aggressive poker players like to raise and reraise frequently and always play all out so that the opponents feel scared and stay away from pots. The aggressive players always try to dominate the weaker hands and even if they have nothing they can still manage to take a lot of chip from others. These tricks and strategies do not work always. If their opponents are strong then sometimes the aggressive players face trouble to win the pots. It is really tough to make the strong players stay away from pots. If you are facing an aggressive player then you just need to stick with the fundamental playing style. Raises do not always prove that one has a good hand and that is why you can always continue playing your own style with confident.


Tight players are tough to battles with. Out of every eight or nine hands they play only one or so. The tight players usually play hands and you must try to avoid them when they are raising and reraising confidently. They never take even a little risk if they do not get a great hand. They always try to throw a lot of boards so that they can still chips from the weaker and push them back from the pots.


These players are sharp, fast and know how to make a lot of money from poker. They can adjust their style with any other styles in which their opponents are playing. You must avoid playing in a room where you can see most of the shark players are playing. The shark players will fetch your money anyway possible because they take poker much seriously and treat as their job. They always seek to find weaker players and players that are below average to make a huge profit from them. Be careful about these shark players while playing.


The fish players think that they can win most of the hands but unfortunately that is not the case. They are not as consistent as the sharks. These players think they win every hand and can sometimes deliver wrong beats to another players.  Sometimes they deliver badly even when they think they have a good hand. Follow the fundamental rules of pokers and try to give them a tough fight always.
