What is the strongest and weakest part of your game?

What is the strongest and weakest part of your game? (Bad game selection, going on tilt, playing bad starting hands, chasing draws too much, not calculating pot odds, can't read other players hands, not being aggressive enough)

weakest part of my game

well i would have to say i have 2 very weak parts to my game, i will chase a straight draw and i hardly ever calculate pot odds. i also have a tendency to play bad starting hands but never for more than double the big blind. i think my strongest part of my game is being able to get a good read on 85% of most people.

BB Suprise

It seems to me that I nearly always go out on hands I would have never played, but got to see the flop for free (unraised big blind) and something catches my eye. Casing point: I was in a tourney the other day, BB with 56 off. No one raised so I got to see the cards for free. Flop 7-7-8. I've got an open ended str8. There was also a flush draw possibility on the table as well. Checks around, to one player who made a sizable bet, all fold, and it gets to me. I call, figure I'd see the turn. The turn comes a 9. At this point, I figure the potentials: He could have JT, but I doubt hed have made such a bet on the flop with a gut shot. He could have 9-T which is more likely, which now would only give him top pair with another open ended str8 draw. He could be holding a seven, giving him trips. All cases, Id have won. I figure my hands strong and throw my chips in the middle. Sure enough, he had the boat, 7s over 8s. At the end of the hand, I reflected, and of course I instantly wrote it off as a bad beat. However, its playing those hands that should have been mucked in the first place that will lead you down a road of hurt. Watch out for the big blind specials.

my game

my first mistake is when i decide to sit down. it usually ambles on drifting up and down around the point i bought in at .then after a couple of hours i might get lucky and win a small pot. this really gets me goin and then im off bluffin like a right bell end untill i have lost what i have won then i opt to play tight again for a while always folding the eventual winner until i get short stacked to fuck and end up rivered like a good un with some chancin bastard goin allin an catchin a 2 on the river to go with his pocket pair. and i may as well have my cock in my hand as i reveal ace king suited. BO SELECTA!

I just play the cards, wisely, that are delt to me, i don't have to bluff my way into winning pots. My weakness is not betting agressivly into the pot when i have a strong hand after the flop and turn to scare away the a$$holes that are trying to get their way into a straight or a flush.

Strong; I like to change up playing style. I will get a good solid hands like top pairs. I will take my time beating trying to get them thinking its a weak hand. Then just beat low, like limping in. Then the next time I may toss some big beats in making them think I trying too bluff. It all depends on the postion and chips in the pot.

Weak; Picking up on players that do the samething.

I'm not sure about my strongest, but my weakest without a doubt is. When I'm up alot I get stupid and constantly bet big trying to push pots and buy hands trying to move people out of the hand. Did this yesterday actually. Was up close to 70.00 and ended up only 32.00 in a cash game. I still won but would have won more had I not been so dumb and just continued playing smart.
