Passive Fish; will have tighter range(if he raised), maybe cbets, might go broke often enough, will let us showdown a lot when we miss for cheap/free, maybe flat
Aggro Fish; will have whide range, will cbet alot, will barell alot, may bust himself when we set., maybe flat
Tha'ts how I see it.
Assume we raise vs LP open and we raise;
TAG; will fold/raise or call with tight range that gives us good implied odds=lets raise him
LAG; will fold most junk, raise with some junk some good stuff, and call with mediocre 22-TTish,ATs+,KQsish stuff. Will raise us too often when we resteal and will not have a big big hand when he calls.=lets not raise him.
PFISH; doesnt fold too much, doesnt have a big hand when calling, prolly only 4 bets AK,JJ+, will still let us show down cheap/pay us when we set=may as well just call
Aggro Fish; will 4 bet too much, will have a whide range even calling, will rarely let us see cheap show down and will only sometimes go bust=may as well not raise him.
SO; if one of these archetypical players opens bttn;
;OK to raise
, prolly not OK to call
;cant call, cant raise=FOLD
small pair to raise from LP
, dont raise
I should have been more specific, but notice (if you agree with me), we are only really flatting open raises against Passive Fish and Aggro Fish. My friend actually makes a good case for not even flatting 22-55 vs them.
