Aggression In Poker
Image is everything in poker, and there are many images for people to morph into, but there are two that are often cited in poker literature: passive and aggressive.
Passive poker players do not excel in the game of poker.
One way to attain an aggressive image is to three-bet and three-bet often.
By acting in this fashion, players will think that you are playing a very wide range of hands, meaning that you will get paid off more often.
Being the aggressor also allows you to control the flow and dynamic of the table (often referred to as being the Table Captain).
So, when you first join a game, start by three-betting with your bluff type hands.
If you start by three-betting light, and do not receive any resistance then keep hammering away until you do. Then, when you start to feel resistance, change tact and use your value range.
Another great way to apply aggression is to hammer away at one particularly weak opponent from position.
