Firing the second barrel on the turn? Opponents who call the flop with a wide range are typically good to second barrel on the turn. Scare cards are usually more effective than blanks, but...
Shove-bluffing the river? If someone calls the flop and calls the turn, they rarely have a super strong hand. There are exceptions, but most of the time they'll be hoping that you check the river. I like to disappoint them. If I fire the turn as a bluff, there's a good chance I'm going to bomb the river. Sometimes it doesn't work out (I shipped Q-hi on a J5525 board into AA the other day), but it works often enough to show a profit.
As with anything, bluffing too often can get you in trouble. But they never know you're bluffing unless you get caught.
Some good advice here!
I like shove-bluffing at the river typically pot size or over-pot size .
someone who is openings a lot of hands, i been 3bet light if am at the BB , cant do it earlier in cas some behind does have a real hand.
Bluff-raising the flop not what I typically do against a high C-better, I prefer floating on the flop and betting /raising on the turn.
firing the second barrel on the turn....my favorite play...i do it with over cards/ just a draw/or bottom pair.
out of the 3/4 scenerios , Im betting and taking charge of the pot.
against a high c-better I'll float on the flop....and make him believe he's taking control.of the pot.
