PLAYING A DRAW


  In this chapter I’m going to analyze a hand that was played in a 15/30 game at the Bellagio   in Las Vegas

  This hand was posted on the Internet by the pro player who played it, and was discussed   extensively. 

  I think it’s a hand that illustrates why loose-aggressive games are so profitable; it also   illustrates why many otherwise good players don’t seem to do well under those kinds of game conditions. 

  Many poker pros who play in Las Vegas argue that the best games are loose-passive games   and that loose-aggressive games are why many would think that. 

  The reason is that he doesn’t properly adjust his play to exploit the mistakes that players in   a loose-aggressive game are making.

  Of course in Las Vegas there is a reason for this. 

  There are more poker pros perspective capita in Las Vegas than anywhere else, and an   aggressive game is usually a sign that the table has a larger than normal contingent of pros. 

  Passive games usually indicate a lot of tourists at the table so Las Vegas pros do tend to   find passive games more profitable than aggressive games. 

  They just wrongly conclude that the game conditions themselves are the cause of that.

  The reason we’re looking at this hand is to illustrate the importance of modifying your play to   exploit the table conditions.
