Representing the flush/straight
So, you get heads up to the flop with a good/decent player in holdem late in a tournament (Probably buy in level of 11 dollars) or in a stake level of cash game where players know a good deal about holdem and figuring out what their opponent has and making good laydowns (I dunno, 1$/2$, .50/1$?)
They raised preflop from the button and you put them on a something like AK, AQ or JJ+ at least because you've read them as tight. You call them down with 5c6c from the BB, and the flop comes 8sTd3s, you check, and they come out with an automatic cbet that you feel they've done a million and a half times. You see you have nothing, but if your opponent seems as seasoned as you think, they'd obviously think that you COULD
have something because it would fall in the 'range of hands' your opponent could expect you to call his raise and cbet with at this level.
The turn comes 9s and you check-raise your opponent, and after thinking about it, they fold. You take down a pot with absolutely nothing. Was it worth the risk? Could it ever be worth the risk?
Just wondering, i mean we know bluffing
is an integral part of the game, but how successful can a bluff be? Would something like this work on such a basis that you could profit from it when your opponent even has kings or aces?
