a question about maniacs....

Postby Upostablike » Fri Aug 05, 2005 7:02 am

I'm wondering at what limit call maniacs tend not to play anymore?
I just started to play online poker and I had more than a couple of bad beats with people with sorry draws (like 4 8 offsuit) just calling everything and getting flushes or straghts on the river all the time...I  guys do it to me in .5/1 like 5 times in half an  hour...

Well, it crossed my mind to, but I always feel I can get these people, but it seems to backfire, cause I just don't seem to get a break, someone always gets lucky....I guess the answer is no limit

It happens at all levels of ring games,  but in the long run you will  outwin them.

chefsnoopy has it right about the long run being what matters.  Too many players focus on short-term results, all the wau down to a single hand.  They lose one on which they're say an 80% favorite, and they get angry or even go on tilt.  They forget that 80% means - in the long run - losing 20% of the time in that situation, which - also in the long run - is very profitable.  Poker is about doing the right thing, which you can control, not one-time results, which you can't.

I always stay patient with them and eventually when the right hand comes along i always get them.
