Loose Games vs Not-So-Loose Games

When a poker game is mostly showdown hand selection is most critical as the hands with the best chances of making the winner will be the most profitable ones to play. When the game gets tighter and pots are won without showing down poker becomes a game of people playing, and skill throughout the hand becomes the determining factor of how much and if you win.

Zee is replying to a question about Omaha/8, but the concept is valid for all poker games.
