If you are in a game against a hyper-loose aggressive player, then life can be very difficult for you.
If you find this style difficult to play against, then the best advice is to move tables, but if you are playing in a tournament against said fiend, such as the World Series of Poker, then you are pretty much stuck.
Trying to play against a hyper loose aggressive opponent is tough, even for the best of players, and here are some of the reasons why:
The hyper-loose aggressive player plays so many pots and so many styles that it becomes virtually impossible to get a read and to calculate hand ranges.
A vital area where the hyper-loose aggressive player can make your life hell is the money bubble in a tournament.
When a player of this type runs ragged, during this time it can be pure torture.
The hyper-loose aggressive player also plays in a similar way on a final table. Laddering becomes a factor – with all of the money in the top three spots – and this type of player will understand that.
If you are playing pots out of position, then you are asking for trouble. This type of player preys on people with positional disadvantage, so make sure you are not one of his or her victims.
Finally, playing heads-up in online poker can be very difficult as well. The hyper-loose aggressive player is very prone to shove over your button raises, and you end up suffering death by a thousand cuts.
