like to know if you guys do this say you have in holes cards (suited or consective cards) such as say 9 10 and want to see flop then have 2 say 8 jack or 2 spades so now chasing straight or flush then make 30% bet trying to get rid of a couple people (always works) but 2 stay in then don't get nothing on next hand but still have a bunch of outs so hit it again with bigger bet (BLUFFIN OF COURSE) hoping the rest will fold but that dosnt happen so now committed and the river dosnt help now DO YOU KEEP BLUFFING OR FOLD
That's a losing strategy. If you have 4 others in a pot, usually someone has hit something. Even if they are just drawing and hey are playing at your level, they are calling hoping that they are going to hit something. You've gotten yourself committed to a hand on a draw and most of the time your not going to hit the draw. if someone just has top pair, they likely are going to call. Sometimes someone else has made a set, or a better straight or flush and your dead.
If you just check and fold on the river, you've over committed your hand and crippled your stack.
Instead of suited or connected cards just play suited connectors. That way after the flop you may have a chance for both a straight and a flush. If you hit 2, you want to see the turn with as little of additional investment as possible. In this position you want as many people in the pot when you hit it. Bluffing with this hand should only be used as a semi bluff when you are heads up and in position, or when you're the big stack and you can afford to put a lot of pressure on your opponent.
I do not think intelligent or raciocino of the game, 9,10 does not have that much equity, you need to take into consideration how many BBs have to apoustar and see the flop.
At most I would check, and control the pot is not hit a hand without a turn, complicate even more when you have two player paying you, then clearly shows that as chances of you be behind them and big. A non-river bluff if you do not follow or make a hand, it's not a + EV move. Now if you hand it, you need to maximize the gains.
