re: Poker & Underestimating other players...
Everyone thinks I'm bluffing and I'm not,
Well, if you are doing that, then you have to use it to your advantage. In other words, don't put yourself into a position where you are only roughly 50/50 to win if your strategy is working. I think your all in push could only work if you had stated:
Everyone thinks I'm not bluffing and I am.
You see, if people think you're bluffing, that can cause you to get a lot of money out of them on a killer hand. But preflop, when you don't know, it's going to cause a lot of people to call you with PP, for instance. And you can only survive so many 50/50 all-ins during a tournament.
Maybe that's another way to look at it. I'm still trying to figure this game out myself, so take it for what it is!
Anyhow, love the discussion. So many angles to every situation!
