I was just wondering what is the best way to play against players who only play their cards. Im talking about the old white guys who dont really think about much more than their holdings. These type of players prefer to limp and they only raise with big hands most of the time. They like to limp call preflop and check call top pair hands post flop. These guys are for the most part straight forward players. I believe I all ready know the answer to this, and that is to widen my range and be aggressive from position. However, I still would like to hear some more opinions and some elaborations on this type of game and player if you guys would be so kind... BTW, the game is 1/2 NL

Thanks in advance to anyone who replies.

These are the guys that don't try to win, they try to avoid losing. You can beat on them and make money, but if they check raise you throw away quads. Best idea is find another game, you might beat the crap out of them and go home with a 50$ profit.

These should be the players you look for! They are very easy to read and you can almost always out play them. My best advice would be to be more aggressive against these players. Get aggressive in position and always continuation bet the flop. If they call you can slow down unless you put them on a draw such as straight or flush draw.

Another thing I like to do is when you c-bet a flop and actually have a good hand... I'll show it to gain respect for future bets... knits should give you even more credit on your future bets...then in the future when your bluffing after you c-bet a flop... say things like "Sorry man, I'm getting lucky today" or something of the sort...they are more likely to fold...

You can actually win decent money against these players... those cbets on the flop have a high % of working long term.. as long as you are using pot control and slowing down when they call you should make out well.

Maybe we are talking about different things, mean the guys who go to the casino every day and visit, they all have VPIP of about 2, and if anyone opened for 6 they would only be alled by aces. It's almost like a home game just at the casino..

You are already losing when you categorize players
I live in Vegas and I know "old white men and old white women" that beat the crap out of "young Internet wannabe pros".
Now in general you can only beat tight players by playing crappy low cards and hit the flop heavily, but in my opinion you will still lose over time.
As many books mention, playing ultra tight can still make them money (a few bucks a day), but in my observation they have many opponents who try outplaying them with insane bluffs.
There are thousends of retired players female or male here in Vegs that bump their income every weekend nights taking on tourists on the Las Vegas strip.

I'm an old white guy but most of my memory goes back to limit. You would get tables where everyone knew each other socialized and if they won 15$ it was a good day.
