Default Re: Why are the table coaches always the loose passives?

If you're honest with yourself you will realize that 100% of table coaches are tight, though not nescessarily "tight-aggressive". I have never seen a table coach that was loose. I think the reason for this is they know just enough to play tight pre-flop (and probably suck postflop)and probably are making a big deal of the fact that they have memorized the starting hand rankings.

I have, though they weren't loose-passive; they play too many hands because they think they can somehow catch up after the flop, then they bluff far, far, FAR too much, which allows them to berate the "calling stations" even though some of us are just good players who know better than to fold second pair against them.

The guys who constantly bitch about getting gutshotted, runner-runnered etc. tend to be the same players who chase gutshots, runner-runners etc.

In my case, these are both signs that I'm on tilt. When I'm not on tilt, I don't complain. As my tilt-ness grows, first I complain and then I play badly. I don't know about other players, but if you were playing against me you would probably see:

1) I'm on tilt.
2) Someone sucks out on me. I complain.
3) Now that I'm even more on tilt, I'll start chasing hands I shouldn't.
4) Eventually, I'm on tilt bad enaugh that even I see it and I go home.

That is utterly ridiculous. Unless you've simply expanded the definition of "tight" to mean " genuinely tight players plus anyone I think is a table coach", it is silly to claim that every table coach is tight. I have seen dozens of table-coach types ranging from tight-passive to loose-aggressive.

I think "tight" means "tighter than the guy who just sucked out on him". Saw someone call 2 cold with A6o get beat by 75o, his reply... "you called with that? what a fish!"
