Types of poker players

We divide players based on the number of hands that they play and also based on whether they play aggressively or passively. This results in a total of four main types of players.


This refers to a passive player with a small number of played hands. This type of player only plays top cards, only matches other bets before flopping, and folds if he or she gets unlucky in the flop. It is a good idea to play as many hands as possible against such players. If they call, then after increasing the bet you will win most pots. But be careful if they start to call your bets.

Calling station

Calling station refers to a passive player who calls many hands. Such players play many games, even with weaker cards. However, they usually only call. It is easy to draw such a player into the game with reasonable bets when you have a good hand and then take their chips.


A maniac is an aggressive player with a large number of played games. Such players aggressively play many hands, and before flopping they often raise even with weaker hands. It is difficult to play against such players, and they often become quite annoying after a while. The best strategy is to wait for good cards and then let him/her recklessly raise the bet. You just need to call his bets. The only type of bluff you can use against such players is to pretend to have weaker cards when you have excellent ones.

Thinking playerč

The fourth combination of the player is the hardest to deal with. Such players play a reasonable amount of games, call bets based on the cards in their hand and on the table, know all poker strategies and attempt to read all the players at the table. He/she will choose easier opponents and will carefully think about his/her moves. If you want to beat a thinking player, you need to learn the game and simply be a better player .
