with out these kind of players, they wont be winning players, in the long run , they will lose, i think your talking about tourney play not cash games ?? when there going all in all the time, just sit tight and wait for the premium hands and trap em , me my self love these kind of players, cause they double you up, dont try to understand why they do it , just play your A game and bust there asses.
I just dont understand why some people have the need to go all in at every single hand? As far as i know, bingo-poker are for underaged kids or people who wants to ruin a very funny game.
Are you playing playmoney/freerolls? If so,of course people will do that,they have nothing to lose,so they're ready to risk whatever. It doesn't matter if you lose 274932749237438 millions of playmoney,you didn't pay one cent.
Otherwise,if that happens to you in realmoney play,then that's the type of players you want. Just need for a good hand and double up. Surely you will take some beats from those players,but on the long run you'll make alot of profit against these people if you call with the right hands.

Really good thread sir. As the other mobsters above said there are two types of situations. Firstly there are play money games and freerolls in which many players go all in because they don't have nothing to lose. I actually observed many players go all in with bad cards on freerolls at beginning to build a stack. As someone said the best is to trap them with cards like KK or AA. I never saw players that go all in on cash games, sngs or tournaments. Nowadsys i started to learn to play omaha and i started plahying at full tilt poker, firstly with no limit omaha but there is pure crazy, all go all in no matter what they have. For those who don't know the game not even AAKK double suited in omaha is not a safe hand to go all in. Now i understand why omaha on real money is only played as pot limit omaha.

Don't stress about them, just make use of them. In the long run they will never be winning poker players. I know it sucks losing to them, but if you can make use of them, they can be helpfull in building a decent stack that can help you finish in the top of a tournement. Gl

in freerolls and stuff its standard but if you get donked in a real money game its pretty annoying. I was down to 180 people left in a tourney out of just over 2000 and i had been pretty snug all the way, think i had 19k in chips bb 1000, i pushed with AJ i get snap called from K9 sooted for his tourney life or almost he had 3k behind he makes a bloody str8 6-10 knocks me out i looked back a little later just to see if the tourney had been won and so i checked out were the guy who knocked me out was and he finished 13 places after me lol what a bloody waste of my chips

How or what to do with these players would not say.
In the FTP freeroll MB are in droves, who teaches?? I understand that MB has a poker school?? is a lack of respect for a game as entertaining as it is poker and the most pathetic is that these games are ruined for an ultimate goal which is a bankroll for the MB community and where we would all benefit if there were not these BINGO BANDITS
------------ Question on the issue PeerHag1
What to do with this type of game and with these outlaws?? What to do with poker rooms that lend themselves to this type of game?? Where there is no logic whatsoever and where the knowledge factor or what to study is useless and gives the average 5% knowledge and 95% luck

I actually started observing some micro stakes pot limit omaha tables on full tilt poker since i'm planing to start to play pot limit omaha on real money. I'll start with micro stakes even though my bankroll allows me to play at low stakes. I was sursrised to see that at micro stakes there are people, yes most of them from nordic countries that always raise the pot no matter what hands they have. There was one guy from united kingdom that actually had a 4xbuy-in stack made from three nordic guys that played that way. Of course it was considered the passve player of the table but every time at 2 or 3 hands he reraised the nordic pot size bet and in 90% of the cases the folded the hand lol I still think if you have patience these all-in people can become a nice source of profit on cash games, but i agree you need to be very patience.

Of course it's okay to go all in if someone make a reraise in front of you and you go all in if you have a monster hand like pocket aces or pocket kings. Thats one thing but it's a total different other thing if someone goes all in on every hand he was dealt. If you observe such a behaviour on a cash game table the answer is pretty simple, you sit out and leave the table and you sit on another table. The problem is serious when you play on a tournament or on a sit and go where you are seated with a freak that goes all in every time. Of course you could wait a moster hand and shove yourself all in but you also can lose. Thats the main reason for which i like cash games a lot more than mtt or sng. Still, now i also play tournaments due to multi entry tournaments and rush poker tournaments on full tilt poker.
