This is a discussion on Play Poker within the online poker forums, in the Tournament Poker section; For you, when is the right time to bluff? Beginning of the famous intermediate or final all-in tournament?
When the opportunity allows. Table image coupled by how others have acted on the hands. If you have played tight, it is a lot easier to sell it. Will only show a strong hand with knowing somewhere down the line, it will allow a bluff to go through.

Hello. Bluffing depends on a njumber of things, not just where in the game you are. Pick a player that is playing few hands. Pick a player with less blinds. Pick a flop that there is no chance of a straight, flush, or set. There are more ways as well. Good Luck! Go get'um.
You should consider this chip, regardless of the time in the tournament. There are many features for the right moment, but the main thing is the number of your chips and which opponent is against you. Sometimes, if you choose the wrong opponent to bluff, the bluff is impossible, because you will risk everything, when you opponent get all in, or the opponent will make an easy fold and you will get the minimum..
So I don't think it's possible to give an exact or approximate time for this! There are a lot of factors, for this technique
There are several factors that I take into account, but when an opportunity arises I do it, when I am playing a tournament sometimes I can perceive certain things from my opponents and from there I can decide if I bluff or not, sometimes when I do not get good cards and I feel that I have to change my game a bit, I bluff, sometimes if I am in the final stage of the tournament I only analyze if it is worth it, depending on my stack and my opponents, there are several things that I analyze to make the best decision for me
Bluff is inherently acceptable only when the opponent is pressed and ready to throw-not everyone can feel this fine line.But you've probably done it before, and you've done it well.Success comes only when you are confident in your own bluff.
