  2. Loose-Passive:These are the players that tend to call in every way and can be quite annoying when you have a big hand. They will try to steal blinds and antes but they can be pushed off the hand with a big raise or 3bet.
  3. Loose-Aggressive:These are the players that will play a lot of hands, even those that aren’t very profitable. They can be unpredictable and at the same time can play some really poor hands like medium pairs and two pairs as well, when the time is right.
  4. Tight-Aggressive:These players are very difficult to play against as they keep on raising and betting pre-flop and on the flop.
