      When i´m playing at my local casino it sometimes is standard that the table become very loose and someone always raise the blinds 4-5 times.

      How handle this, should I continue my tight style of playing or should I loosen up?

      I mean the fact is that I fold many of my ordinarie starting hands because I´m facing a raise

      You should play the opposite to the table - when they raise a lot you should tighten up and punish them with your big hands - just play them aggressively, do not slowplay.

      You may also want to play speculative hands if you and your opponents are deep and they seem to be active postflop as well, so you might have a better chance of stacking them when you hit big.

      Those are just my guesses though.

      imo a gambler like you describe is punishing you for being tight, you must try and put a stop to this by reraising a hand like 88+ AJ+
      Always try and be ip against this type of guy.
