SchoolingSchooling or fish schooling describes a phenomenon where the mistakes of loose-passive players weigh less heavily on their equity because there are many of them. The individuals who make bad, unprofitable calls are aided by the fact that others doing the same thing increases everybody's pot odds.
Example (Texas Hold'em):
|Player A||Player B||Player C||Board
