I've recently started to try and get myself off of the "I'm a rock" playing style in ring games, and started to try some bluffs preflop and on.
Is it profitable to do something like raise big preflop then show your 7 2 offsuit?
Afterwards people may not respect your bets, so c-bets may not work, but possibly your good hands will get paid off better.
