In general, the poker purists will have you believe that there are two distinctly different styles of poker, from which different forms emerge.

The two main branches are called tight and loose, and the branches are christened with other names, such as passive, aggressive, and hyper-aggressive. So what is the best style? Who would win a twelve round punch up in the WSOP 2012: tight or loose?

In truth, the answer is neither. If the two went toe-to-toe, then the only outcome would be a draw.

A loose or tight poker strategy is only effective if it is deployed as a counter strategy, and this counter strategy is created based on your opponent’s style. Given the fact that the world contains millions of poker players, you can see how the battle to determine the better style is a fruitless one.

What tends to happen in the poker world is that people teach what they perceive to be effective. This causes an explosion, as everyone tries to jump on the same horse.

The current situation, where poker has become extremely loose aggressive is the case in point. As players get loose and aggressive, other players chose the counter strategy: looser and more aggressive.

This approach only has one ending, and that is for the game to turn into a mindless free for all, where skill becomes a thing of a past – this simply will not happen. Out of the ashes a new poker warrior will rise.  He is a true master of them all and he uses them as counter strategies against each specific opponent.

So, tight or loose; how about the player who can play them both, and play them both well? Practice your own poker strategy online, and benefit from the Betfair Poker Bonus given to new players..
