When bluffing, you have to be consistent. If your whole game is based only on checking, passive play and small raises, it is easy to make a mistake or panic and get caught in a bluff when you raise or re-raise. In this situation, each of your next bluffs will be checked, and it will be easier to control/read your game

bluff is a good tool in the game. Just starting my way in peace, I see that I often don’t play it to the end. Sometimes a small bet is enough. A difficult topic and an interesting topic ... It will be interesting and useful to listen to the opinions of good players in our community

Hello,
I personally love to bluff, but it can also be quite difficult. A bluff can already be set up pre-flop and doesn't have to end on the river. When you're in a tournament and just waiting for good cards, it can get really boring! I usually play bad hands as well as premium and it works like a small bet on the river! Everything can work, you just have to be able to read your table well, but be careful, there is always a better one who is just waiting for mistakes :)

Does it make sense to bluff and make normal bets of the same size?I try to bluff smaller
If you are facing known fishes there is no problem in varying the sizing of your bets. Versus regulars they will easily notice the difference/unbalance and start to exploit you, calling more and raising more when you bet less and fold more when you bet high.

Hello there mate, it seems you love boxing. May I gently ask you if there are any relations between bluffing and boxing? In other words, is there any “bluff” when you are fighting? Any move you do to bail/deceive the attention of your opponent, like the football dribbling?
On the contrary, how could you apply the bluffing in boxing playing poker?
Thanks!

in boxing, as in poker, it is the attacker who paints the picture. Hiding your true intentions. Of course, there are many different deceptions. check-raising in poker and boxing, provoking an attack... boxing, like poker, is the art of communicating between two opponents. and the better the boxer, the more noticeable his intellectual development. There are reflexes that are developed, that's how questions are asked here. How to play certain hands situations. I've heard the expression in poker that it's not your hand that counts, it's what your opponent has. It makes us think and not just go all in with AA

boxing, like poker, has a large number of different tools for winning. And it all depends on the character, anthropometry, coach, skills that you invested in childhood .... Everything is complicated. As in poker, the theory and practice that we are trained in is not all .. ..

in battle, look into the eyes as soon as the enemy looks from one object to another. this is the best moment to attack, his brain freezes, he evaluates new information. in boxing, bluffing is not the best tool, the best one is a good position for you and an uncomfortable position for your opponent. then even a weak boxer knocks out a strong one.... Is it like poker???? I didn’t understand this before😴

I like to look at boxing through poker. Who do you play with, his weak and strong game? What is your strength, hand or position? With each street the situation will be more difficultIt seems to me that this can be used in people's lives for their assessment and planning. I rarely bluff, this is a desperate step when there is nothing to show

Thank you too!!! English is not my native language, with translation everything becomes more complicated and sometimes the meaning is lost a little. Sometimes I myself laugh at what happened. Have a good evening

In zoom I usually make my bluff bets smaller, but actually it depends mainly on the situation: what do you want to make fold? let's say you're river with 7 high, missing your straight , if you make fold an A high is already a good result. If your opponent seems on a weak hand, don't need to make a big bluff, something like 1/3 is enough, sometimes I bet 1bb and I get a fold. When villain folds with 1BB you should remember it, note it, so everytime you have a very weak hand willing to make fold anything, it may work against him (usually they press the auto fold button) . in live poker, of course it's different, and I don't think betting 1bb will anyhow work, unless villain is drunk af, and not paying attention. When you are against a very strong hand, and you miss your straight draw, but the river gives a possible flush, if villain is capable of hero fold, you should bluff on this just like would do with a flush.

It does not matter if they are the same or not as much as you dont want you bets to tell what you have. Many players may not notice your betting smaller with your bluffs but I guaranty some have figured it out and love playing you. If you newer to the game betting the same size will not allow the other players to know if your bluffing or not and then need to really work to catch you.

For as to bluffs, yes they are part of the game but may not be as much as you think. If you over bluff you will have a lot more issues to your game. Bluffing is a skill that takes a lot of time to acquire but is used much less ofton that many think.

The bluff is a tactic, the player can start on the pre flop, leaking a raise, and on the post flop, making a re-raise, on the turn keeping the raise and on the rive going all.

Bluffs has to be the exception, not the rule. If you regularly bluff, in a long run, you wont be profitable. Thats my opinion.

I don't know what's right or wrong when it comes to bluffing. It all depends on your game, how you are mentally, how you're playing at the table, how your bets are are many factors.
I know one thing if you bluff well and don't regret losing.

This is poker, there are no rigid rules of conduct here. You have to play as varied as possible so that your opponent is not able to decipher you. A lot also depends on the type of game and the number of tournament players.
