Every so often, the topic of best playing style comes up. In this way, poker's no different from chess, golf, or any other competitive endeavor. The poker forums generally favor a LAG (loose aggressive) style of play. So I decided to look through my data to see if there was any validity to the LAGs' claim that their style is superior.
This data is obviously nowhere near conclusive, but considering how many "LAG is best" comments there are in the forums, I see no data that would justify this. That having been said, when I think of the top three mass multitabling regs at midstakes, they all play around 18/13 (which I consider the lower end of LAG) - maybe people just remember how the best play. But as I've said in the past, good players are LAG because they are good - so they can play more hands profitably. Players don't get good because they play more hands.
