Sweet, 96% rating is "decent" haha....Who's being weak tight? I'm a TAG. I'm still aggressive as hell, but when the situation warrants it. I don't open marginal hands just to punish limpers etc. I fast play almost every actual hand I have on the flop, whether it's a flopped flush, straight, combo draw, two pair etc. I push FD and OESD the same way, that way opponents cannot tell if I'm raising with a made hand, a draw, or both. I don't gamble PF if I can avoid it - I certainly don't seek out coinflips in the first few levels. I understand we approach the game differently and that's fine. I understand your perspective, and am honestly looking to expand my repertoire a LITTLE bit to have a little bit of LAG in me. I don't think I'll hit your level of it, but that's fine. Players play differently and there's nothing wrong with that, and I do respect your opinion and advice. Sometimes I agree with you and you articulate it very well. But there are certainly times I disagree with your advice too.
I say decent because I am in the same boat.I def respect you a whole lot more now but Dhall is still weak tight imo.I still disagree with your bolded point here, tho. I don't go seaking coinflips - the whole reason to shove AK here is to be called by hands you're dominating. At worst
you're going to be a flip, you'll hardly ever run into AA or KK. I've played thousands of these tourneys - It's +EV to shove AK here in these spots in $4 180's. Trust me, I'm sure of it man. I wouldn't be so adamant about it if I wasn't.
