2 techniques against agressive players  0   
This is from Harrington book, I won't say I discovered it lol:

To qualify as agressive, you must have seen him enter many times, raising many times. (too much to be betting on value)

So you have a decent hand.

1) Hammer: Couple of limpers, he raises. Your turn, raise double. If he wants to play, well make him pay with your decent hand.

2) Rope-and-dope. This one I like a lot, cause they get frustrated often. He raises, you call, comes the flop. You hit it. (which was probable because you are betting on value). He bets, you cal, and this goes on until river. The most beautufill thing here, is he is trying to make you fold, and thinking you are drawing a hand, so when you call, he thinks he must raise a lot more and you will fold. Well, on river no matter what, you go allin.

A really cool situation that is going on, is that in the last years the most successfull payers are loose-agressive, so newcomers belive that's the way.

Nice advice MartinR, but playing poker is also luck on your side. I think every poker player have some badbeats. That is all in the game my friend. I think of myself as a tight player.

I think number 2 is the better one, it often works again very aggressive players... let's take Gus Hansen for example as the aggresssive player... he'll do exactly what Harrington's book mentioned in order to make you fold...

Good points, a lot of players out there try to grab easy money be being overly aggressive with out really understanding the how to play well. Use their agressive tendencie to milk money off them.

Most of those maniacs just shove as much as they have after the flop so, basically, all you have to do is just call them if you hit your hand. Just make sure you hit it and there is nothing to worry.

Second post I`ve seen where you mention Harrington`s Volumes.
I`ve got a copy but only read a small part of it. looks like great Poker reading though.
Have you read through Volume I or Volume II as well?

Maybe I have to get off my ass and read them. Confused

Just wondering how that is working out for you?
Have you noticed a change in your results?

Definitely like option 2 on your list. Hey if your willing to come out betting after the flop with what you think is the best hand, why not let the over aggressive lead out to you,, that usually pays off more then if you lead out to him/her.The power of checking is under rated!!!

I will raise 3x the bet of the agro player + limpers blinds
2 works well, but only for an idiot agro player, you can try sandbagging, quite fun.
Obviously the 2 metods above only tend to work if you have position on him, just worth noteing.
