This Video's Great Because...

By: Christxof @ 16:47 (EST) / 279 / Comment ( 0 )

This video, Other Playing Styles, is great because it shows you more about the playing styles other than the Tight-Aggressive we all know and are conditioned to.

To be more specific, the video shows us exactly what the other playing styles - Loose-Aggressive, Loose-Passive, and Tight-Passive - really are, and we learn the pros and cons of both. I particuarly like how it explains why these styles aren't as profitable as Tight-Aggressive, showing both how they can be good, and the downsides to using each of them. An example would be how Loose-Aggressive players are harder to put on a hand, but they also have to make tougher decisions. This goes beyond how some guides just say "play Tight-Aggressive" without explaining why it's the better choice.

Better yet, it tells us why playing the Loose-Passive style is a terrible idea. The video teaches us that the one benefit of the style, seeing a lot of flops, isn't worth the massive trade-offs of not being able to build big pots, and overcommitting with poor hands. Learning how unprofitable the style is and why was very educational.

All-in-all, it's one of my favourite videos out of the tutorial videos. The educational portions combined with information you don't usually find makes for a great video.
