Player spewy will be the type to call too much, bluff too much, push all in repeatedly because he is sometimes tilted. Player spewy or spewtard will also be the type to gamble above his or her means. Against a player spewy, you play a solid ABC poker and you don't bluff him. We wait for a good hand and we let him attack us to empty it of its buy-in.
