they call tons of raises with no regard to position just like donkeys, the key is where donkeys check fold flop when they miss the tags try to outplay you every hand, push u off whatever it is u have with no regard to the board or how you have been playing, they dont seem to have any understanding of when or why they are 3 betting, they will reraise you and when u repop it they are almost always going all in with whatever it is they have(it was j5o as i was winding down my session 15 minutes ago for example), they try to make far too many plays, and when u call their bluff they just blindly keep pushing their bluff/crap hand. they play terrible post flop after callign a raise, pretty much when they have better than a high they are check raising the flop 100% of the time and if u call check fold turn. 10% of the time they actually have a hand and might check raise the turn again. if they call ur flop bet and u check behind on turn they pot it into you with virtually anything ALL the time, if they have middle pair u check behind on turn with top two for example, board pairs giving you a boat, they pot it into you u go all in they are calling here very often as they think they are pros and u are obviously bluffing because they dont get outplayed. i could go on but i think u get the point.

btw if any of you start playing nl 400 at party, add crillo555 to your buddylist, that guy is an atm machine

Does their tendancy to check-fold the turn if you call the check-raise lead you to play back light or do you still need a reasonable hand to take then on in a bloated pot?

i play back light against he frequent checkraisers who seem to do it every hand, but i sitll check behind turn sometimes to keep them guessing. they will call turn sometimes to, and some of the worse ones will even call a big river bet with their crap, have to identify which ones are the rly terrible ones and tone down your bluffs

I just wanted to thank you for this, it has been extremely educational for me. I have found myself trying to get to tricky, trappy since I moved up to NL200 and also without cause giving my opponents too much credit for level 3+ thinking and it has hurt me, making some awfully embarrassing calls. Your posts about the bad TAGs hit close to home and really made me think. I just need to get back to my normal game and stop thinking everyone is trying to bluff/steal on me.
Keep it up!!!! the well!!!!
