This is a discussion on Bluffing against a real hand within the online poker forums, in the Learning Poker section; If you started bluffing, and the opponent started to accept, how will you continue to play? Ask him with a bluff or what?
If you started bluffing, and the opponent started to accept, how will you continue to play? Ask him with a bluff or what?
If you have enough information about your opponent and you have had a good time studying his behavior at the table, then it will not be difficult for you to determine the strength of the hand with which he calls your bets, and therefore make the right decision for each specific situation))) Use the continued bet every time , When they are sure that they have studied the opponent!
You need to have some reads on the particular opponent. If he is a nit and you know you are beat you stop the bluff on the turn ,that may save you some chips. On the other hand if he is a calling station and he is going to call you no matter if he has a funny hand[like bottom pair] then don't bluff him unless you have a good combination, then exploit him at the max.
If you play online and have a tracking program try to integrate the WTSD , WSD stats.
One of the hardest things for players to do is to give up a bluff when their opponent has a good hand. Someone will see a small stack in the big blind and they are on the button and will raise to like a third or half the stack of the small stack.
The small stack will then shove over the top and the opponent will often call and be dominated rather than concede to the small stack that clearly has the better cards.
Knowing when you are beat and folding bluffs takes a tough mentality but it is needed by anyone who wants to make money playing poker.
is not about his hand its about the player. Will he lay down a middle pair etc.. meaning what type of player your playing not the hand. Is lot easier to get a good player to lay down middling hand then a bad player plain and simple
do you dare to dance with the devil in the pale moonlight
It is difficult to answer unequivocally. It all depends on your tactics behind the table. The meaning is how you perceive other players at the table. You are a tight or aggressive player. Aggressive can not believe. The tight player will be quick to believe on the bluff and maybe your bluff will be crowned with success.
When you bluff, you have to tell a very good story, if you bluff on a flop like AJ3, you'll have to tell your opponent, till the river, that you have at least two pair on this board. But bluffing against a made hand is not that hard, let me give you an example, on this same board, AJ3, lets suppose he's got QJ and hit his medium pair with a Queen there as a kicker, if you bet hard on him, he WILL have to fold, it doesn't matter what he has, unless he has a crystal ball on his hand or are those guys who thinks everyone is bluffing him.
But in case you see the guy wont fold to your bluffs, just forget that hand, unless you have a made hand in that case. For example, if you got nothing on a board like KT7, and you cbet on flop, he pays, the turn comes 6, you bet on turn he pays, on the river he will check to you expecting you go all in and catches you with a better hand than yours, or he will donkey bet telling everything he has
You must know the style of the game of those who are going to be misled by a bluff. Maniacs and weak players often calls with weak hands, so it's very hard to get them to fold. Your style of play also matters.
I would continue. Not often the hands that call the bluff on the turn will respond with the same success to the river.

Bluffing is all a bit dubious. If you hit up against a good hand and all you will do is lose money. A good time to bluff is when you are in the small blind and the others have folded and only the big blind remains. Even this is only worthwhile if there is an anti.
