Not a whole stack.
If hes a tight/weak player I usually make more than I lose.
If I bluff him 10 times and win then... bluff him one more time and lose, how is that losing?
Ive won 10 times and lost only once.
So I won 100.00 and lost 10.00
The next time I will make sure to bet the same way and have the nutts then take his entire stack.
He will think Im bluffing and many times re-raise me with a medium hand (like a pair or two pair).
Then I will take his whole stack with trips or better.
Ive put a lot of players off tilt this way.
