Keeping your bet sizes consistent makes you harder to read. But if this worries you it sounds like your bet sizes are quite big, and when you bluff and fold you are bleeding chips.Does it make sense to bluff and make normal bets of the same size?I try to bluff smaller
It makes sense to bluff if you are a skilled enough and experienced player. Otherwise, your bluff will only bring you loss of money and disappointment.Does it make sense to bluff and make normal bets of the same size?I try to bluff smaller
I think it has been already well explained that the bet sizes for value bets and bluffs shield be consistent.
But another thing comes to my mind is that I don't understand the reason behind it in the first place:
The goal of bluffing is to make better hands fold. So why would that be achieved with betting smaller (than usual)? The first idea would probably be to bet bigger to make the other hands fold more easily/frequently.
(But as pointed out, this wouldn't be right either.)
But is it actually a bluff, when you have a medium-strength hand?There are cases when your actions pre and pos flop have made clear that your range of possible hands have just mid value. In that cases, betting too much can show inconsistency and make the odds of being called for bluffing actually worst than betting a lower amount.
To be successful blufing, depends on what percentage of times the vilain folds for your bluff betting. Remember that the pot have to be worth.Does it make sense to bluff and make normal bets of the same size?I try to bluff smaller
