BEATING BLUFFS !!!
Hello CC members,
I was wondering if anyone has any suggestions for a good situation to call people on their bluffs. I was thinking a situational kind of advice, and why you thought to do it (as all good advice should). I would like to snap off a bluff everyonce in while, but I always play the cards in my loose games, as they'll call my bluff, stay in with near anything, chase. But I do play with other decent tight and tricky individuals once in a while, but I try not to butt heads as it easier on my BR to just avoid them all together. I realize it has to be a semi-solid player with the semi bluff used, and be able to fold his losing hand, not chasing draws with out odds
. It just seems that when you don't really hit the flop, and you don't think he hit either, and he wouldn't be chasing but he semi-bluffs, things get difficult. Maybe if he has won a couple pots without showing, call him out on his bluff? Even if you lose he may not try to semibluff you off next time because of calling him down. Is this the best strategy, sucking it up once and calling him down, or semi bluff reraising when feeling the proper time? Are those my only defenses against solid bluffers?
