This is a discussion on Bluffing vs. Over-Bluffing within the online poker forums, in the Learning Poker section; Hey all, quick question! Looking for some feedback.
I've heard/read that players, in general, rarely bluff (like, full-on...not talking about semi-bluffs). But then we all know
Hey all, quick question! Looking for some feedback.
I've heard/read that players, in general, rarely bluff (like, full-on...not talking about semi-bluffs). But then we all know that others tend to bluff too much (the fish).
Do you guys/gals have any methods or pretty obvious ways to tell when someone is over-bluffing? How often do you stone-cold bluff? The reason why this question came to mind is that I folded AA and KK against two different villains within an hour because they were betting like they had a monster. I am trying to learn how to fold these types of hands in situations where I really think I'm beat. However, I am always scared that I'm being bluffed.

Sometimes if I miss flop completely I dont hove other choice than bluff. Then it doesnt matter what cards I have.

I sometimes think if the size of the bet is abnormally big the player is not looking for a call and probably bluffing. But I still wouldn't call unless I had something pretty good because your cards still have to beat their cards.

re: Poker & Bluffing vs. Over-Bluffing
Yeah theres a lot of times when someone bets more than the pot to beat out people with pocket pairs or even high pair on the flop. Happen to me live while the didn't muck either. I was sad for a bit.
