When was he not on lockdown, right @Goldfish ?
Lockdown implies that there are times when he is actually opened up……. I believe the appropriate politically correct term is “conservative player.” I looked up that term in the dictionary:

The dictionary defines a conservative or cautious player as a @MatB. The definition goes on to state that, at a poker table, a "@MatB" is somebody who doesn't like to take chances and "step out of line". A @MatB will generally play ABC poker - playing strong hands aggressively and not looking to make many bluffs or unusual plays.

The problem with somebody who is a "@MatB" and DOESN'T change up their game is that good players will quickly identify them. If you are a @MatB who only plays strong starting hands, a good player will quickly adjust and quickly fold whenever a @MatB starts to take an aggressive line. This means that the @MatB will not get paid off on their strong starting hands, at least against good players.

This is all correct, but apparently @MatB is also very good at game selection and plays with plenty of (gold)fish that will pay him off.
