Following some good advice from my colleagues and friends of this beloved forum, I am trying to play more aggressively and within this concept, beginning to practice the "art" of bluffing, usually in projects and on the turn, sometimes with nothing.
Obviously my first results with this technique have not been too good, perhaps because I have no experience doing bluffs or because freerolls are not the fertile field to perform them.
Any advice to start improving with bluffing, which I consider much of the spirit of poker?
I don't think bluffing needs practicing because you nedd to identify the situations when you can get away with a bluff and i don't think you can only focus on practicing bluffing and the more you try unsuccessfull bluffs the more callers you will get even with marginal hands which will make it even harder for a good bluff i think you need to project an image of a tight player first even if you are not
CC strategy section has some good articles to get started and learn how to bluff better , like the semi bluff , bluffing , triple barrel bluff , fighting semibluffs , etc They will help you become a better bluffer .
I also say , till you /learnknow how to bluff efficiently on the long run , if you decide not to bluff at all (with the exception of blind vs blind fight ) , it won't hurt you I believe .......
Bluffing is a tricky thing, it takes a lot of time to master it, and then you still never know for sure if it will work. My piece of advise would be to play more serious tournaments, implement bluff only with certain players (you have too find the ones that are good to bluff on within the previous hands), use your position (late position is obviously the best) and don't be super consistent with it, do not overdo👍👍👍👍
