I'm not sure that what is written is an actual opinion but a statement based on very little supporting comment. It should really be described as an observation rather than an opinion. However for it to be a true observation, it would have been helpful for you to explain why it is your observation (or opinion as you call it!)

I dunno, 3-betting a big raise LP like that with AQs isn't good IMO. You had 97k, blinds at 6k which gives you around 17BB. Personally once LP raised, I'd either shove or fold. I'd actually say lean toward shoving since you're so short stacked, but you're going to be a flip at best. Since he's put in 1/4 of his stack with a raise, it's easier to put him on a bigger hand, unless he's a complete idiot. When someone commits a good chunk of their chips pre-flop, it's usually safe to assume that they feel strong enough to go all the way with the hand.
On that note, not sure how much AQs beats that they'd be doing that raise with. He showed up with JJ which had you as a dog, but you got lucky. At this stage you've got to rely a little on lucky flips especially when you're this short so I still don't think it was that bad of a move.
I'm assuming he 4-bet you and you guys got it all in pre?

getting back to the thread- sure aggressive players win more than passive players- just because they have the initiative, because they win most of no action hands, where a passive player just wins the premium hands and most of the time is bleeding money waiting for those premium hands to come

The tight-aggressive style is the epitomy of perfect self-control. This is known to be the only lucrative style of poker. The tight-aggressive style is contradictory. On the one hand, it is necessary to hold back, but behave decisively and aggressively when playing.The TAG can always pull the emergency brakes on the turn or river when he realizes that he is defeated.
take you haven't lost with monster hands lately...recently holding AA flopped an 4A4...boat only to lose to quad 4's. So yes aggro wins and loses also. Worked out for you this time, which is good, when it doesn't you may see aggro style is situation dependent.

I think this is actually the best conclusion of this thread..
Even if you are an aggressive player but you play even the trash on long term you'll be a loosing player, so it's also very important to have a good hand selection!

As for me,i hate mega agressive players.For example if you have AK and A83 on the board,you get big reraise for your raise.And all other streets you only call raises of your agressive opponent,and you are afraid he have set.And you see that your opponent had only small overpair.Why They are play so that???
