I was playing at a cash table (loose table with a lot of raising 3-betting , four-betting ,All ins ) .
----------------
So I started playing tight , (I play tight normally) .
I played only hands like AA , KK ,QQ ,JJ ,T ,99 ,AQ,AJ ,AT, KQ ,KJ etc. I slow-played and called their bet preflop (except AA , KK ,QQ,AKs ; I raisedd with them) ,
Therefore after the flop , I didn't connect that o ften and they bet and I fold .
This made me feel like : I play few hands and even they not make my profit . I bought in two times and lost all ...
What should be the correct startegy to play at these kind of table ? what must be standard buy-in at these tables ? ( shallow or deep stack ) ?

Hi siingh!

I always buy-in for the max allowed for that table. Also, against that type of opponent, the way that I try to play is to be tight, but I'm not being passive and reacting to their bets. When I'm going to play a hand, I'm raising.

The key is to play tighter, try to play hands in position and be aggressive back when I do play a hand.

I'll play TAG (tight-aggressive) and use standard bets/raises.
