- The solid, well-rounded hand reader
Buys in full, 100BB. Tops off his stack whenever he falls below the 80BB threshold. Can fold and raise his button, and absolutely folds his blinds to raises. His range is somewhat predictable meaning that it will take somewhat of a cooler to stack him. He is capable of calling with Ace high if the situation warrants. Raises his button about 66% of the time.
- The gambler
Buys in for 25-50BB. Plays any two cards. Primarily relies on getting lucky and calling down whenever he hits any piece of the board. Once he gets stacked, he's done. If he's on the doubling end, he's gone as well, happy to take his double-up. Rarely raises, bets only when he has top pair. Loves to min bet (WTF is with that!?!??!).
- The tilter
More rare but very lucrative. This player is similar to the gambler in his buy-in habits and pre-flop ranges. However, he'll continuously rebuy for his standard 25-50BB and look out if he gets stacked back-to-back! For example, I had a guy who I was pretty sure went through his entire bankroll last night. He bought in twice for 35BB and then rebought for the nice round number of $17.94 at a 25NL table. Pretty sure I busted his roll.
As an aside, Bodog is offering $15-$30 per week as part of their Cash Per Suit promotion for the next month. Play 25 points for 4 out of 7 days and make $25. Play 25 points for 7 out of 7 days and make $30. Seems to me that the 4 out of 7 days sequence makes the most sense.
Look for me on the tables! I'm "Player 1."
