My strategy is to go all in on every hand. I'm deathly serious.

If people think I am insane, they won't hesitate to go in with me. If I'm lucky I win.
I don't play poker with cash though.

I play a lot of Texas Holdem. I play my cards straight normally, as a lot of people expect players to show weakness when their actually strong and show strength when they are weak. I'm also pretty conservative, and as such, I tend to stick around for a while. I also enjoy the looks of disgust when I check-raise people, so I do that a lot.
I didn't order assholes with my whiskey.

I played poker for a living for over 5 years online. I played also in Harrah's in NC for over a year. I would still be playing if they did not ban pokerstars and the casino did not have digital tables there. I prefer live cards, that is the only way to get the exzact %'s. These online and digital games are far off from exzact math.

What game type did you tend to play most, I think I'm more of a sit and go player. TAG too. :) Ok... maybe a lil more loose. I seem to win though. :)
I've not played it live yet, and i'm thinking I might start playing it alot more and try and build some sort of living from it. Is it difficult, to build a living on it?

I played a wide range. I payed limit hold'em, no limit hold'em, omaha(my fav), omaha H/L, seven card. I think sticking with sit & go's is the way to go. I made a decent living, 9/hr, playing sit & go's. I usually played 5.50$ 9-man, top 3 pay. The best game is cash games, you win right then and can leave at any time. I also played tons of MTT and won quite few. I like the deep fields of 2000+ men, it is easier to cash in them. The game today is alot tougher than when I started. More people playing, I started before ESPN made it big. I started in '98. I have lways played though, my step-father ran a seven-card game for years and I played in as a kid.

Yea, I started playing just after Liv Boeree won the EPT San Remo (not because of her, just remember she was big at the time) and I just fell in love with it. I play only No Limit, that's the only strategy i've worked on. I think if I can conquer that then I'll start playing more games.

What level you play at?
In the casino I played 2/5$ very rarely. Mostly played 1/2$ no limit. Online I played 25/50 cent.

I don't play a whole lot anymore but I used to play Hold 'Em a bit.

On a given hand when I look at my cards, if they're more than three numbers apart, none of them are face cards (and I'm not even so sure with J or Q), and they're not suited I throw them away. When these conditions aren't filled there are other options. Middle to high pairs, chance of a straight/flush draw at least, or two generally high cards will usually be able to keep me in so long as I don't have a too low chip count.

If I've stayed in for the flop there are a few options for each subsequent go-around: Someone has bet in which case I calculate the pot odds and if they're under over 3:1 I toss. If they're under and the bet isn't a significant portion of my stack I'll stay in. In instances of raises, the pot odds are again a deciding factor but juxtaposed with however many outs I have (if I'm shooting for something). I sometimes overweigh pot odds relative to outs if I have really good pot odds and vice versa so it's not set in stone. Less then around ten iffy outs makes the hand generally not worthwhile.

If I'm first to act and I have a good amount of outs, anywhere from 1/3 to 2/3 the pot is a general bet. In instances of re-raises pot odds and the number of outs obviously have to be taken into account.

On the whole I'd say I'm a calculating player mostly. I can be incredibly aggressive or passive depending on how I think things will play out.

You have decent understanding of the game. Why you stop playing?

I played on Full Tilt and Pokerstars and I cashed out just before the government stepped in. Played mostly 5 card draw and 8 game, and this is on Pokerstars which I definitely preferred over FT. Low variance + the occasional fish leads to a steady profit. This is not a game where fish can survive, it's not PLO. There was a steady network of regulars but every once in a while a fish would step in and donate. I played 2/4, 3/6, and a bit of 5/10.

I'm trying to shift my strategy atm. At current I'm too calculative, only actually seeing to the flop around 1/3 of the time and even when I get that far I'm too conservative. Anyone have any tips for playing more aggressively while not giving up my calculative edge?

From what i've learnt, roughly 20% of hands being played is what should be.
I tend to play 25-30% of hands, but I'm hypo-aggressive

I found that knowing percentages is extremely helpful. For example, 2 other players in the pot on the flop, it's about 55% chance either of them have hit. With 1 person in the pot they've hit it 33% of the time, perhaps less. Read the flop texture. Flop texture is important. If it's 7-2-5 rainbow, bet into that like there's no tomorrow if you're against fish, not maniacs, fish.
Extremely tight players fold unless they've a pocket pair higher than 7. Extremely tight players play about 10-15% of hands.

In a six-person game, fold unless you have you have Q-10 or better or a pair of 6's or better.

I play pretty conservatively, (with a couple of admitted bluffs a game to encourage action against me) so unless I'm in the blinds I wont even limp in with Q-10 unless it's suited... I'll play higher suited connectors (around 6 or above) pretty often though, but usually cautiously.
