The complexities of human nature are yet to be deciphered, however, experts have tried to classify us poker players. One such research talks about the playing styles of poker players based on which people have devised winning strategies in poker games.


Following these strategies might not prove to be a full proof plan, but some of the strategies do make for a winner in a poker game. Some strategies are more relevant and strategic in online poker games. So, let’s discuss some of the famous playing styles of poker players:


The term stands for tight aggressive poker players. This style of playing is observed in majority of the champions on the felts. These poker players are extremely selective when it comes to their starting hands. They won’t enter the pot with trash hands most of the times. Depending on the poker cash game, a TAG typically plays 18% to 25% of the hands. TAGs prefer to bet and raise instead of checking and calling.


It stands for loose aggression displayed in poker card games online. These characteristics are majorly seen in losing poker players but they often earn much more than TAGs. This style of playing involves more skills as compared with the TAG style in online poker tash games. So, if you are making money exhibiting this style of play, then you ought to be an amazing poker player. 

LAGs are also known to play with trashy hands, which is not the case with TAGs. They are also observed to be playing 23%- 30% of the hands depending on the size of the game (short-handed or full ring).

This is a tighter version of TAG. With the increasing difficulty level of online poker games, this style of playing is gradually increasing. Hard times require more resilience and that’s how Rocks came into existence in poker games. These players are not necessarily skilled in poker, but they do have stronger decision making power in terms of the amount they are investing. Therefore, they do manage to have a small amount of rate of winning.

These poker players are characterized as the hyper-aggressive kind of LAGs. Their aggression is extremely typical and evident and their liberal over bets, just puts a cherry on the top. Another characteristic about Maniacs is that they play more than 30% of the starting poker hands depending on the size of the game of real money poker .

Now, the natural instinct is to question which style is the best one in poker games. We believe that the TAG style of playing is the answer to this question as they are frequent winners who are also profitable as far as the bankroll is concerned in both live poker and online poker games. 

On the other hand, the three other playing styles discussed do not have frequent winners. Either, they are not very good learners or are simply losing their bankroll for nearly nothing.
