What is Exploitative in Poker?

An exploitative strategy is one where you identify and exploit imbalances in the strategies of your opponents. For example, if you know a particular opponent will fold to a 3-bet 95 percent of the time, you might 3-bet with a much wider range as part of an exploitative strategy.
