Before you start playing poker, you definitely should learn about the styles of playing and types of players. The main styles of playing are tight and loose. You play tight when you enter the game with strong hands only, fold when the hand is not very strong i.e. play very few hands. You play loose when you call and place bets even with weak hands i.e you play a lot of hands. There are aggressive players who usually raise and re- raise quite often. Against aggressive players you should call, raise and re -raise only in case you have a strong hand. On the other hand, there are passive players who don’t raise often, no matter how strong is their hand. Passive players usually raise when they have a really strong hand, otherwise, they call. But against a passive player you should not play a passive style. You can use this strategy only in case other players are aggressive.
