i was just wondering how you can keep a lead? do you play aggressive or do you play conservative or a little of both?

what i do to stay ahead is to dobble the stakes att each time a bet, lower stack will call but rearly go all in, or call at close to all in

When I'm in the lead, I play pocket pairs aggressively as well as suited connectors. Play conservatively on ace high and fold anything that isn't connected. Raise the sb n bb if no one else called n if they re-raise, call n hope for the best. At early position I will limp in with pocket pairs n if anyone else raises, I will jump them with an all-in and hope they don't hit their pair lol. I'm a chicken at heart when I have the lead tho, not really wanting to lose my chance at first place. heh. But most importantly, I go with my gut feelings. Trust ur instincts. If u don't have one..uhh..good luck.

it's not that often ive got a lead :( but when i do i try to be more conservative but end up calling mosts pots and slowly but surely my stack gets shorter and i find myself chasing lost causes!

Just play tight and press when you think your opponent is bluffing. Try not to double them up!

maqybe try to react on the other players. if they are mostly tight, play agressive and the other way round. Chip lead should do the rest

It depends, I seen people with big chip lead call everything and raise to buy pots. When u have a substantial chip lead, use that to your advantage and play a lilttle loose.

When I have the lead I tend to dominate the table by betting big with my half decent hands, this way the other players know that their throats are on the line at no big expense to me and not bother to risk it and a high chip stack will probably reflect the fact you know what your doing when you are rasing those big chips, always works for me jasta

Well leaning on the little guy normally works on me so I'd say highly agressive is the way to go.
