In the low limits it is not so important to develop specific “reads” on each opponent in order to precisely analyse them. Chances are, you will never see them again after the game. However, it is important to know which basic player types there are and which counter strategies to use against them. This is what this video will show you. If after seeing this video you have any questions.. please ask.

    tight and agressive are TAG ,weak tight player

    tight and passsive are Rock ,Nit

    loose and aggressive are LAG , maniac

    Hi Benecore,

    If you are having trouble making "reads" on your opponents, use the Elephant programme.

    It is really easy to use and will flag up stats on your opponents and their player types. You can also save your hand histories and paste them into our hand evaluation forum for one of our experts to see and comment on.

    Here is the link:

    I hope that helps.

    I really liked the jokes, the accent/voice and the overall presentation.

    That's a really nice and informative video.

    Interesting...but the hand chart suggests only playing those hands. I've done this to very good success for the last week. If you're going to start reading players aren't you going to go off the chart though?
