I usually play conservative, and many times I see, when coming to the paying positions, that very frequently, players with lots of chips are agressive, with this I mean they will raise you with no cards, and only fold in case you raise them big enough (except, of course that this time he does have cards). How do you play with them? turn more conservative and wait to premium hands to open so not to lose money in an almost sure raise? even if they check they maybe be slowplaying!! Just happened badly to me he took me as his kid lol

you can't blame them to play agressive when they feel that they can pick the chips and they have the chips to raise and take a risk however that they oftend run into a hand and lose part of their stack . if you play thight and slowplay them you can take them down but you need to be patience .

Yep - also - try re-raiseing them a couple times - if they're a GOOD aggressive player - observant and not just a maniac - they should eventually note that they can't steal from you and may stop trying it on so often. IMO - it sounds like you're a pretty weak player - and you're opening yourself up to be a victim really. I'd pick on you too if you were on my table and player super tight "waiting for premium hands".
If this is full ring / cash - then as mrnugger says- wait to you get a premo hand and slowplay them..
If it's 6max you need to open your range a bit.
If it's an MTT (9/10 seater) you need to also loosen up a bit (learn to play your position and add things like suited connectors etc to your range in LP and do some steals/re-steals yourself)

Hi! I usually play not aggressive game, It is possible to scythe a lot for example opposite an aggressive player, we grant his increases only if we play with our winning sheets very passively, and his end we raise. If our adversary is never aggressive with weaker sheets, this can be used, if we become an aggressive player at this time. The aggressive game in that direction good we are allowed to make the rest of the players believe it, that with the less good sheets we risk bigger stakes with pleasure. For this eredményeképp our increase is granted then much more easily if we will have really good great burdock, and we may gain more hereby.
