I saw a guy bluff and make a professional player fold with a set in his hand. It was really crazy.
For me, bluffing is a fundamental part of poker. However, I think the best is the semi-bluff. When you have a strong draw or even more than one. But the bluff must be enjoyed in moderation, if not others perceive it.

Tom Dwan always made me jealous with how easy he made huge bluffs look on TV.

Bluffing is part of the multi-faceted game of poker. But to bluff perfectly or close to it, you must first learn to play poker at the tight level. That is, a bluff, or rather a semi-bluff, is one of the highest stages of the poker game. But I know that many beginners start out by bluffing, or rather they think they are bluffing.

exactly one must first learn to play poker at the tight level,
As for the beginners, they always fall into the trap, so I prefer not to bluffing and I try to play it safe and slowly and always wait for the good hand

great, you need to play a lot of hands in this style to understand when to semi-bluff, and preferably in the late stage of the tournament.

I admire those who know how to bluff. I liked the video that MishkaZL sent. I was impassioned by the girl's coldness.

Thanks for reminding this really funny and still great moment Mishka.

She was so fearless, if I remember right made it to top2. That was the first hand, and Ronnie somewhere had to know that she most likely not having better combination then him, but the way she was so confident about her raises, her facial expressions, her voice, and even about her agression, considering it is a once in a lifetime possibility for celebs...Ronnie trapped himself by mixed these thoughts. Even he managed to say that prob. KQ and maybe 54 could she had here, but when she shoved her bluff, it was a real HUGE suprise on everyone's face. :eek: Good for her, and good for the viewers too, even Ronnie as well, cause he never stopped complaining till he was at that table, and prob. had even more some respect on Miss Finland after that. :)

It's important to remember that we have to bluff at least for the reason that we need to win hands, and if we only do this on the card, sooner or later we will lose. even pocket aces are the strongest starting hand, and they may not always win when dealt. With a chance of winning about 80%.

The best bluffers online are the ones who know when to get away from the hand. I will let the bad bluffers keep firing away as I just call. The good bluffers I have to 3 bet bluff to make them lay it down.

The best bluffing person is Rene Mastermix, a streamer from germany. If you would win a tourney you must find good spots to bluff to generated chips. Only playing value hands you did not win a tourney or come to the final table. Pros can use draws which not came to switch it in bluffs so you did not see the bluff. It needs a lot of experience to learn in which cases you have good situationes to get a successful buff.

It is definitely a skill and a useful one. Many new players overestimate its power though and try to do it too frequently. Bluff is a tool which if applied at the right spot can help you win additional hand which otherwise would be lost but if you do it incorrectly it can bring much more harm than good.

A good bluff is expensive!If you're bluffing and making good moves at the same time, then you probably deserve to be called a professional.I do not think that bluff is a fraud.The whole game as a whole is a hoax if you believe it).

If you're not bluffing, you're not trying to win. Keep in mind that you have to set it up and it has to be believable.

Bluff skills are not easy as we know, especially if your opponent is using submarine skills to trap us. his weapon is not to raise with his strong hands. so I don't bet on hands not winning

I think bluffing is skill! But you need to bluff with some semi-strong hands, otherwise I don't see the point! Since not having with you any more sane hand, this is a game of minus!
