Often meeting behind tables the Romanian players, constantly I face their silly and aggressive game. When against them won, many times in the answer received only insults. How you consider, well they play or it is bad?

weve all had encounters with aggressive players...dont think its fair to categorize players to the country were they live....come find arsenej1 at a table somtime and ull see aggressive .....im extreme agressor sometimes and tight passive other times....depends on the mood and other players around me. if your playing freeroles/1-2$ buyin game play will be differnt then 10-100$ games...someimes that is ive played 50$ games and swore i was in a 10$ freerole with 10000 players

Silly and overaggressive poker players with little experience? Fantastic! Great place to build your stack in a tourney or rake it in at a cash table. One-dimensional play is usually the easiest to beat.

That's right... but the point is - that more often than not, such players have more luck than sense, when they act first and then just thinking...
Actually, the nation shouldn't be any reason - but I have some experience with them and I can frankly say that usually they indeed play overloose-agresive-fishy... as well as russians do (...especially in low chargeable tourneys or freerolls). So what...?
This is the world of poker... and there is nothing we can do...

Greetings and welcome to the forum Problema666. I'm glad you were able to turn a profit, that means you identified his play style and adapted yours accordingly, good stuff. I agree with Arsenj1 here though, frequency is probably based on increased population. It sounds like you've definitely got some skills and you'll go far here. Let us know how well you fair.

What was posted above is true, it's very wrong to judge a nation by some players you meet at some poker tables, i also saw some good russian poker players though, even that is commonly agreed that they are maniacs on the poker table, but if you look at their top pros like le kork for example you'll see that there are also very calculated poker players out there that for sure also make nice profits. I always said that it's not fun to play against maniacs but i also said that it can be very profitable since most all of them will pay you with any hand, so it's just a patience game till you got a good hand and then you can basically get all theor stack in a single hand. This is what i do for some time now and it always pays off. I personally avoid playing against countrymans for multiple reasons, but their are good players in general from what i saw Good luck at the tables!

again silly ramblings about this country players bad, this country players donks. every country has good or bad players and its just that you encounter a few bad ones and makeup your mind about them. i personally rarely notice which country someone belongs to.

Two out of three biggest pots i won yesterday were won against russians players, unfortunately on rush after you finished the hand you are switched to another table so i could not see if they posted something or not in the chat box. Still, both hands were won after going all in after flop with monster hands(pocket kings once and pocket aces). SuperNoob is right and there were actually many threads here on the bankrollmob forum about nations and they style of play but in the end of all threads we all agreed that every country has his very good players and also very bad players which have tons of luck and many regulars got those nasty bad beats they talk about so much. Anyway, good luck to all mobsters at the tables and take care!
