I like this line of thinking..

I liked my comment on how to play various hand so much that I thought I would repost it as it's own entry:

As long as I do not call every raise with small s00ted cards, and as long as I keep changing my game, keep going from tight-ass to loose and free and back again, I think it will make me a dangerous player. Changing from bluffing hands to having monsters. Nobody will be able to put me on a hand.. and that my friends is playing Poker. IMHO.

Playing more hands with good position makes you a better player and tougher to read. But play your strong hands with good aggression and take advantage of your slightly loose image.

Its one thing to state image as a reason to make that play, its another to state "implied odds" or 57/43 to win.

I agree that constantly changing your image at a table (playing "sub-optimial" starting hands) to be +EV for future hands.

The odds to win arguement, not so much.

You know what Bone Daddy, you may think that my play was terrible but look at your own game a little.

A lot of it has to do with luck, too. You can call small raises with suited connectors while in position and whiff on every flop, making you look like a moron who just calls pre-flop and then folds. Or, you can hit your draws, get paid off, and then get dealt bigger hands pre-flop later and have a nice advantage.

Changing gears is definitely money. Even at lower levels, people will catch on if you play the same way every time. Eventually.
