You guys say dont bluff alot BUT....
After reading a lot of advice from veterans here at this forum I'm thinking seriously about toning down my bluffing
a bit and focus more on value and reading players.
Im still a little confused.
I watch poker TV and see Doyal Brunson and others bluffing like crazy, constantly pushing people around.
And Im SURE most of you have heard about the woman (Annette Obrestad) that won a WSOPE Bracelet without even looking at her cards!
She was placing bets solely based on her read of how weak her opponents are.
Sounds like to me she bluffed all the way to her bracelet!
Also I just read a post about this guy here on the forum that makes 50k a year.
He says he plays all TYPES of hands (not just tight hands)..and he does this because he has a fair read on his opponents...
And Im sure he isnt making 50k a year placing all his value on j7 or q3...
50k a year bluffing?
I hear you guys saying bluffing is just for thin value but this sounds like a lot of value to me.
So can someone finally put this issue to rest for me and tell me what the heck Im missing in this equation?
I want to be a good player, I really do. I want to be the best I can but...Why does it seem that the best players are the best bluffers??
