I'm playing on Full Tilt right now, and am observing a guy who seems to have some sort of system in place.
He starts at 3/6 limit and buys in for the default 10BB ($60). He doubles his money (or so) by playing crazy-insane aggro-donk. VPIP 64%, PFR 47%. As soon as he doubles, he leaves and logs into a table the next limit up, buying in again for the minimum. He did this on 3/6, 5/10, and 8/16, before starting over again at 3/6.
Anyone ever heard of such a thing? Bizzare. But he's making money. He's not at any one table for more than 10 or 15 minutes, and I'm sure people are more inclined to fold to him initially, not knowing if he's just on a hot streak or is really a maniac. And just when you get out your colored markers to tag him as a maniac, poof! He's gone! (I had jotted his name down in my scooby notebook so as to follow him to his next table, but that's when I discovered his little system).
It's definitely not "poker," but sure appears to be one way to exploit the nature of online play.
