Default beating predictable TAGs

This is sort of a general post, but there are SO many predictable TAGs on the party games. I was just thinking of ways of beating them. Please add

1. Position raises-when they openlimp in EP they almost definately have a low-mid pp. What you do is raise with a larger variety of cards then normal from late position (given theres not many people in the pot) and c-bet to take it down when they dont hit their set. If they raise ur c-bet then fold.

2. (obvious) Get out of way when they raise.

I really need more here................. [img]/images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]

Play draws strongly, tons of fold equity against most TAGs who often lean more toward the T than the AG. They'll get out of your way and then pay you when you hit and they're frustrated. When you would just call against a donk who'll pay you when you hit, the money against the TAG (and the metagame consideration) is to raise.

Raise a lot. A lot of predictable TAGs fold way too much if you represent a big hand, so play like you hit big way more often than you actually did.

When you call their pf raise with position, on a non A/K flop, call their c-bet, when they check the turn, 3/4 pot it.

Depends on what sort of TAG - just because they are tight pre-flop and aggressive it doesn't mean they are laying down to a CB or raise from you.

What you need to know is how weak tight they are - check out stuff like 'folds to flop bet'%, WtSD% and W$SD%

A great way of hitting a TAG is calling with position with pocket pairs and suited connectors and hitting - they often fire barrels on all streets with TPTK or Overpair.

If they are the sort of player that just fires one barrel on the flop and then slows down unless they really hbit, then just make like a sponge - call em down on flop and turn adn hit them with a pot-sized bet on river..

Be very careful of any TAG who raised pre-flop and then checks the flop (eps. if there is no ace on it). TAG's don't see the flop much and when they do they will almost always make a CB. For them not to with one or two opponents is a warning signal.
