Normally I'll go into hand with something I normally would not play if the price is right... like a pair of 22.
Based on how everyone bets and whats on the board is what I use to determine what I am representing. Since I bet the same every time, its hard to put me on a hand. This is especially true if they saw you earlier win a big pot with a premium hand.
Pick your spots carefully because whatever your representing could be in the other persons hand.
This also works in reverse. Go through with the bluff heads up and let everyone see that 72o. Next time when you have a AA you might get some action because everyone thinks your bluffing.
The most interesting thing about poker is how deeply your opponent thinks, the more successful your bluff can be. My most successful bluff was when my opponent threw a high flush, when I drew a full house on the paired board. But we had a background and the opponent was stronger than me in the game.
I have never had big winnings on bluffs. If your opponent calls you on a high call, then expect him to fight for chips on the table to the last and you will lose most of your stack or throw in. You rarely need to bluff if the table is full of players and more often when there are few players.
I think it is an art and I would very much like to perfect it but at a statistical level even in the best the results are negative so it would be something dangerous in anyone's game unless you are phil ivey haha
Actually I like Bluffing is when I notice some weakness in my opponents and I only usually do it with position regardless of the cards even though I like to do it much more with some pair made of hand because if my opponent could end up calling me with some over cards.
My bluff depends on my opponents, their number in the pot, their game, position, board, place of the game, stage of the tournament, my image at the table, my inner feeling, intuition. Therefore, it is very difficult to name specific hands with which I can bluff, they will always be different, in one situation, 27o will win big pots, in another you will have to fold aces.
I always bluff on the flop of a paired board, when I am in the sb. I initially check, and if opponent continuation bets, I will check raise him about three times what he put in. Dont forget to make that check raise quickly, dont run the time down. Make it look like a sneaky slow player with limited skills.
the situation, the opponent, the development of the play, all that influences, I think that much more than the cards, and it is always necessary to bluff to get far in the tournaments, in cash in the same way to get good pots
