      I think that the word itself refers to the meaning of the word. Simply put, regular is a person who regularly plays somewhere. A bad player (e.g. calling station) does not always sit on a table everyday (or at many tables at once, for that matter), though there can be exceptions.

      When you hear a NL50 6max player saying "the BB is a reg", then the player means that he/she sees that opponent a lot. Also, when a player plays regularly, he or she usually has some idea about the game, just like Tomaloc mentioned it. However, how much idea a regular has, can lead to a conclusion, whether a regular is a good one or a bad one (i.e. "good/solid reg", "bad reg").
