Are you a “Shark” or a “Fish?” So what type of Player are You? There are basically nine different types of PLAYERS! It may surprise you as to which category you might fall into.
The first is the “CALLING STATION.” in this category you don’t have many strengths, except you cannot be bluffed. Your weakness is you call to much and the Best Advice we can give you is to stop calling so often, fold your weaker hand and bet or raise your strong hands and be more aggressive.
Secondly we have the “MANIAC.” the maniac is extremely loose and aggressive. Because of the crazy reputation when you win you wing big and most players at the table fear you! Your weakness is the fact that your maniac behavior is predictable. When you lose, you lose big and even when your winning big there’s a good chance you may lose it all before the session is over. Best advice is work on self control and pay attention to your table image. If people always think your bluffing you should only bet your strong hands.
Third is the “SHARK.” a shark is known as a tight-aggressive Pre-Flop player and aggressive Post-Flop player than can earn big profits. Your strength is the fact that it is difficult to tell when you are bluffing and you are normally on the winning side of the majority of showdowns. As a Shark you exhibit very few weaknesses, except that you get bored from winning consistently. Get yourself an elbow brace so you don’t get tennis elbow from dragging in all the winnings.
Fourth is the “MOUSE.” A mouse is a Tight-passive player who is nervous about risking any chips. Your strength is that you early lose your money. The weakness is that you are to timid and not aggressive enough. You seldom bet your winning hands and often fold ones that were good enough to take the pot.
You are easy to read and aggressive players have a tendency to steal your blinds. Best advice is for the mouse to open up his game and Play more aggressive. Bet and raise your good hands instead of just calling, and always protect your blinds.
Fifth is the “ROCK.” The Rock is a Tight-passive and aggressive player and people hardly notice you are at the table because you actually play very few of your hands. Your strength is that you’re are an aggressive Post-flop player and you bet your hands for their value. You will make money at weak to average tables. Your weakness is the fact that you are not aggressive enough on pre-flop and only raise with great hands and aggressive players will constantly steal your blinds. Best advice is for you to open up your game and play more aggressive especially in pre-flop hands, defend your blinds, play more hands in the late position and bluff when people think you never bluff.
Sixth is the “BOMB.” The bomb player is an aggressive-aggressive player in Pre and Post Flop which makes the players at the table fear you. Your aggressive nature is your biggest strength and you win many hands of bluffs and semi-bluffs. Your weakness is that sometimes you lack discipline and your aggressiveness is unwarranted sometimes. Players will slow play your or check-raise because they know you are going to bet the hand. The best advice for you is you should work on your discipline and with an improvement you will become a “SHARK.”
Seventh is the “RED FISH.” A Redfish is and aggressive-passive that makes post flop plays that make you a weak player. Your strength is that your aggressive pre-flop makes you better than a “GreenFish.” The weakness is that you are a passive post-flop player and you rarely bet your winning hands
for their value, nor do you protect your made hands and you give other players the opportunities to catch up. The best advice for you is to play more aggressive Post-flop, bet and raise your good hands instead of just calling, fold your weak hands and Bluff more often.
Eighth is a “GREEN FISH.” A Greenfish is a passive-passive player and you overall passive plays make you and extremely weak player. Your strength is that you are not quite as bad as a “Callin Station.” Your weakness is the fact that you are a passive PreFlop and PostFlop player who doesn’t protect his hand or play position poker, and you don’t bet those winning hands at value. The best advice for you is you should start playing more aggressively on PreFlop and PostFlop hands, Bet and raise your good hands instead of just calling, fold your weaker hands, and most certainly bluff more often.
Ninth and Last is the “WARNING.” A Warning player is a caution sign who is an passive-aggressive player who only bets or raises his strong hands.
Your strength is you are aggressive on PostFlop. The weakness of a Warning is that they don’t raise enough of their PreFlop Hands.
