re: Poker & i want your opinion everyone
The term is "Never bluff at a dry side-pot" I believe.
I dont get it - did you not realise his post flop bet wouldn't increase pot All-in short stack could win? That's what it looks like.
No, but it increases the chance the short stack will win the main pot by forcing the other player out.
Basically, there's one player (say Player C) all-in, and another 2 (Player A, Player B) in the pot. If Player B bets on the flop, he stands to win nothing more if Player A folds (hence he's bluffing
at an empty side-pot), whereas Player C's chances of staying in the tournament have increased. So it makes little sense to bluff in this situation. Player B is still going to have to show his hand down, after all. Hence you will normally get the big stacks "checking it down" unless they have a big hand.
