I play in a regular cash game with pretty much the same people every week. I tend to play pretty tight and rarely loosen up, as the game is pretty crazy. It is typically not a problem getting money into a pot.
Because I play pretty tight, and there are nights I fold, fold, fold and I am kind of seen as a sucker. Without getting into too much detail I tend to win more often then I lose, and when I lose it tends to be much smaller then when I win.
One of my favorite players is a guy with a huge ego. To reinforce this matter he got a lot of TV time during his first main event and cashed, yet he is quite terrible. He is often a large profit center for me (and others). He is the main person that designates me as a sucker.
Last night I caught myself trying to correct his classification of me. Wrong. I should be trying to exploit this to extract more profit. While his ego could probably not be penetrated, others could change their minds about me. Instead I want to reinforce the image, I think, in order to extract the most money.
Any ideas on this front?
