The Tight Aggressive Playstyle

Poker is a great game that millions and millions of people play all around the world. With so many people playing, it is not surprising that there are many different ways to play the game. These play styles are often broken down into archetypes in order to categorize how players play. There is no wrong way to play poker, the right way is the way that works for you. One common style of play is the tight aggressive style. A player who is tight aggressive plays only the best hands and plays those hands very aggressively. What this means is that most of the hands that are dealt to the tight aggressive player are folded but when he plays a hand, he is in it big and is raising. One of the benefits for a tight aggressive player is that he earns respect at the table so when he has a big hand, people know it but, at the same time, can play predictably.
