C-bet bluffs in and out of position
With $92 I am close to my threshold for moving up to 5NL. I know folk say there’s no difference in quality from 2NL to 5NL, nevertheless when that happens I will make a few adjustments.
1) Lower standard raise from 4BB to 3BB.
2) Lower my c-bet from c. 1.2-1.5 of pot to c. pot size.
3) Play a few more hands like Ax in some positions.
4) And then I should try more bluffs, here comes my question:
Originally on 2NL I was c-bet bluffing only when out of position. I had read in one forum thread that you shouldn’t bluff when in position, because you could choose to check and see another card for free.
But later I read that it was more natural to c-bet bluff when in position, because you have now already seen two tells
on the (limping) opponent – ergo he must really have a poor hand.
And this c-bet in position is the only bluff I have used throughout 2NL.
I am now thinking that on 5NL I will c-bet bluff also when out of position, so as a general rule always make a c-bet on flop regardless of the board and position.
Or maybe I should learn to bluff in other situations, what do you recommend?
