  • Playing against loose passive


    I desperately need some advice on how to play profitably against loose passive players. I know that many people want to play against that type of players but i just find it surprisingly difficult. The problem is that whatever hand i am holding i get outdrawn so many times that i lose more often than i win.

    My original strategy was to tighten up and play only premium and very strong starting hands against those type of players because i knew i would be paid off handsomely. However, this just has not worked for me yet. I keep a record of my hand history and these are my statistics for the 4 premium starting hands for the past 3 days:

    -AA dealt 0 times
    -KK dealt 0 times
    -QQ dealt 6 times (won 2 - both of them preflop)
    -AK dealt 4 times (won 1 - preflop)

    overally i lost a lot of money playing those hands agressively preflop and on the flop. I just got outdrawn by trash.
    How am i suppose to play then? can you help me out?
