How to handle a bully player?

Postby Begaind » Fri May 12, 2006 8:17 am

I was at a table with this one person who had a very large stack. Everyone else was average. As soon as it came to his turn, he would jack it up so high that everyone would either have to fold or go all in. It gets really boring just waiting for this guy to get moved to another table.......
any suggestions? :?

i usually tend to raise against these players, if they call you and catch lucky with there garbage theres nothing you can say or do, but just know you made the right play, which sometimes isnt always the one that pays off, you have to try your own stratagies, you can only master poker by learning yourself and from experience.

I just wait for a good hand and go all in and get double stack by the fool. LoL. Sometimes it's good to have a bully at your table they can give free chips. :wink:

a player like that has to be over valueing hand strength so you have to just wait and pick him off when you have the nuts

Let bully do his thing, and praise him if you can, everytime he knocks someone out. Just wait for hand and then take his chips away. Bully always overrates hands so that will happen eventually.
Its great to have bully at table, he steals chips for others, but he is easy target!

Personally I like those kind of players.I will usually just wait until I get myself a nice pocket pair and 9 times out of 10 they double me up.

Yeah just sit back and play solid. Get your chips in when you have position and a good hand, then hopefully you double up. These players don't bother me much anymore, they usually end up donking off their chips because they don't really know what they are doing.

i usually wait on a good hand where you know you got him beat. then slowplay him so he gets burned. they usually second question the next time your in a hand.

here's what i've seen .......a bully going all in every hand about 4 or 5 times, then you get this guy in front of him making a bet or a raise......isn't that ridiculous to anyone else??? why not wait for the bully to go all in again & kick his azz...because by this point, you shouldn't even be calling if you can't afford to go all in......& i see ppl go all in against a bully......isn't that just tossing chips away that you could of had.....let the dummy go all in & bust him :D  :D

You can only control your play not that of others.  Predictable play of any kind plays to the advantage of the smart player.

You had an opportunity Big Time.  Use it next time.
