I rarely bluff. That's the fastest way to the rail against calling stations and bad players.

If the player folds too much - any street that I can represent something that 'scares' the opponent.

If the opponent is sticky but folds the river - triple barrel them a lot.

If the opponent is good - I plan the hand turn and river around blocking their value hands and bet flops and turns based on range advantage.

Bluffing can happen whenever the circumstances allow it. The difference is that the importance of the bluff is different. It is a psycology problem!

If there is no bluff in your game you will rarely make it to a final table, you can't just depend on the cards that will hit the table, but if you're going to tell a story, it has to be told well. As I only play micro tournaments, it's very difficult to pass a bluff, guys call everything, but bluffing is part of the game.

Avoid buffing Calling Stations and loose players, they will call you down with any part of the board.
If your and is a true bluff you won't have a hand.

People I believe worry too much about bluffing to be honest. They are concerned they need to bluff a lot or they feel others are bluffing to much. Bluffing is a art form in my opinion. To make a good bluff you need to bet a lot of chips to scare off the person or tell a story that makes the other player fold. The story must make sense to get the other player to fold a good hand.

depends on the flop and what cards i'm holding if my cards block somethings there's a higher chance of me bluffing than blocking nothing but if i can see a small spot to bluff with bad cards aswell it can be on the river

Semi-bluffing is much better than pure bluffing and the situation to pull of a pure bluff occurs
after missing your draws and you feel the other player missed theirs too or the river is a scare card for their range.
