Ok, I love all the systems and the math and the pot odds etc..., etc... but I hardly ever hear about the Human Nature factor and their bad behaviors.

I've found a winning system, it works with one caveat. Here it is:

Goto bed early on Friday and wake up and goto the busiest poker room everyone loves. Look around at tables and pick the ones with the mid to high buy-in with the most people (and here is the key) drinking alcohol. If you just understand basics with a little strategy you can clean up these players before 2 am. Go home and do the same on Saturday.

Now the caveat: You won't be the only one doing it so your winnings will be diluted by others doing the same thing. Now two at at table of 10 with 3 drunks will work but if you lose your drunks and you're left sitting with sharks ask for a table change along with all the other sharks asking for a table change.

Research some old posts that strategy has been covered.

Drunk players can be a gift and a curse. Of course they play horrible hands most of the time and they're easy to beat. Unfortunatley this can be the curse as they will go "all in" pre flop with a huge stack and a shitty hand. Which weaves out actual game play. One time I was playing 1/2 at the Mirage and this player raised to \$15. I looked down at my hand and I have pocket 2's. I'm willing to pay that price to see the flop. This drunk who has about 200 behind,says "all in". I'm next to act,so that's a no brainer fold for me. The player who raised calls. The flop comes 2.9,6 rainbow. Turn 8 river 10. The drunk guy didn't even have pair. I think it was King jack suited,and the other player filps over Kings. I would have taken down that pot if the drunk didn't go all in. So you see it works both ways.

These drunk maniac situations are very profitable, but also very high variance, and often not as fun (to me) from a gameplay perspective. But if you are primarily looking to make money, and understand how to play these situations, they are great.
