Hey everyone,

Ark here, semi-new pokerstars player.

I've been trying to gather up info and reading quite a bit about NLHE.

One question that bugs me every time is, what level should you expect from a player according to what kind of money level we're playing at ?

As in, the tournament clock is ticking and I get switched from my table to a new one. I always lay low for a few hands to try and get a basic read of who I am facing, but always having a hard time figuring out if a player is playing loose as a particular style of play or because he is a newer/less knowledgeable player.

I get this can't be answered with certitude, but do you have general ideas ?


On a side note, my biggest enemy is tilting, any tips/ways you deal with that nasty thing ?

Thanks,

Ark

Hi Arksos!

That is one thing that I do not want to do. What level a person is playing at has absolutely no relevance to their ability at all. You will see very accomplished players playing in very low buy-ins and you will see total maniacs playing at very high buy-ins. The number of stars someone has is also irrelevant, as these can be bought by the bad players by spending and losing more money.

Judge a player by the way they are playing at the table, not buy the buy-in level.

Thanks for the answer,

After running a couple more SNG's (my favorite way to play atm) in ranges between 3,50$ and 7,00$,
I realized you're almost certainly right about this not being the best way to go, as it probably throws you off
more than anything else if you're trying to tag players. After getting hang of a couple more good poker lessons
under my belt I figured there are better ways to get information.

Thanks again,

Ark
