If you're looking to become a winner in low-stakes no-limit hold'em games online — and who doesn't like winning — then this is a video for you. CardRunners video instructor Matthew Dorand, also known as MdoranD, is a specialist in six-handed games and provides some insightful in-game live commentary while playing six tables of $0.10/$0.20 NLHE.
In this teaser video, Dorand specifically discusses playing against loose-passive players. In other words, he talks about what to do versus players who play a lot of hands and call bets and raises quite frequently, which is pretty much everyone at your home game.
Dorand comes across a tricky spot versus one of these players, where he raises preflop with pocket queens and is called by a loose-passive player in position. He bets on a flop of rainbow, and when another hits on the turn, Dorand bets again to try to get his opponent call with worse hands, but he is met with a raise. Because loose-passive players rarely take aggressive actions like this, Dorand decides to fold. He says, "One thing about loose-passive fish that you have to worry about is when the second pair pairs. Against good players, you normally worry when top pair pairs."
