And the Tag God spoke all these words, saying:

"I am the Lord your Tag God, who brought you out of the land of fish, out of the house of limpers.

You shall have no other gods before aggression.

Thou shalt not make unto thee any passive image; for I the Lord thy Tag God am a jealous God, visiting the downswings of the fathers unto the children unto the third and fourth generations of them that play passive, and showing big blinds unto thousands to them that love thin value, and keep my commandments.

Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain when rivered; for the Lord thy God will not hold him guiltless who shall take his name in vain instead of saying, "nice hand."

Remember the button and keep it holy.

Honor thy small blind and thy big blind that thy loss rates in the blinds be small.

Thou shalt not limp.

Thou shalt not fail to barrel scare cards on the turn.

Thou shalt steal.

Thou shalt not bear false witness against they neighbor to your right, but 3 betting his stealing range with a polarized range does honor to thy Lord the Tag God.

Thou shalt covet thy neighbor's chips."

Cute

Reminds me of Stage 6 or 7 out of 20 or so of Ed Miller's video 'Stages of a TAG'

He didn't say he was a TAG all the time, just that that's what he thinks a TAG would do

Yeah, he's definitely been reading from the heretical, "Book of LAG-mon."

Ha, it's violating the 3rd commandment so much that has me consigned to poker hell.

Severe sacrilege. Luckily, Jehovah has a sense of humor.

As a relatively religious guy, do we really need to make fun of the commandments? (Not getting to play fri night and sat day due to sabbath is rough enough already)

Also, to all you tags. Limp behind more in lp w trash like o1c, its good for your wr

There's a difference between overlimping and openlimping

This post just made me think about my own game. At first I just called myself aggressive. Because I don't want to associate myself with a style. Now I'm calling myself a lag. Not going to stray away from it anymore.

Thanks mpethy

OP doesn't say "Thou shall not openlimp." It says "Thou shall not limp"


I think there are table conditions which make limping hands like low/mid pairs and suited aces +EV sometimes.

I also think there are tables where openlimp/raising is +EV

If the table is passive you can limp all day lol.

I kinda think it's funny that he made fun of god/religion.

Limp, not limp, whatever. It's just difficult to call yourself any kind of aggro if you limp.

Luckily poker is not a monotheistic religion - both winners and losers follow many different deities . (There are more tight winners than loose winners though)

I think this is being overthunk by quite a bit.

I know, right. My own objection to the "thou shalt not limp" commandment is that it doesn't go for the obvious "thou shalt not call."

"Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery," IMO.

No anti-religion rants, please. There is a dedicated forum for that if the spirit moves you.

And unto our poor Hero the Lord, his God, appeared in stacks o' blacks and spaketh, "My son, thou shalt not calleth the raises of thy fish I have provided for you withouteth the proper odds of implication."

And so it came to pass

For the Talmudic crowd:
R Yitzchak ben TAG questiomed the Rummy's assertion that thou shalt 3bet light and limp a lot. But when regularly folding to a nits' 3bet, all the disputants agree.

Maskk: HA!

Also, these are the "commandments" of a "religion", and not rules for most optimal play. So I'm unclear on why some heretics are questioning them in the thread...
