Is it more difficult to win while playing against ‘bad’ players, than against ‘good’ players...?

  • I mean in general when at an online table against people you don't know.

If you wait out the bad players you will win in the end

bad players are tuff to get any read on especially the alliners....but paitence until you get a hand you;re willing to go to the mat with can win out over a bad player ... in tournaments there are many many more so again paitence is key , let the donks knock each other out until you can get into HU situations with strong cards , even if they have many times you're chip stack you can chop em down......  in poker playing the odds will get you further than relying on luck

Now the other side of that is the Good playa's , they make good opponents & the really good ones will mix things up on what cards they are willing to play or raise with so you need to be a bit fearless & know hand strengths , draw odds etc to call & be competitive

BAD!!!!  They come to table with one intention, playing any 2 cards with the hopes of getting lucky (esp new players).

  • Yes absolutely....
  • A friend…a professional poker player well known on the tournament circuit…once took me to a ring game filled with non-skilled participants, and, after a bit less than 2 hours he brought me aside to ask for my description of the players in the game.
  • I couldn’t answer. I had few, if any, reads…I was never able to ascertain with any degree of confidence what pocket cards any of these players held; no patterns, no idiosyncrasies, no respect for money, and no regard for the accepted poker play standards.
