Poker Basics – Bluffing

Bluffing is an important part of poker and is a valuable tool for poker players. This is the gentleman’s time to play the man rather than the cards… besides, chicks dig the bluff.

Bluffing can often win pots, and it allows you to create deception and uncertainty in the minds of your opponents.

Bluffing works better against a smaller number of opponents and often will not succeed against a larger number of opponents.

Don’t bluff players who tend to call too much. Bluffs tend to succeed better against players who are more willing to make a fold.

Be careful of bluffing too much, as opponents will soon catch on and will not be fooled.
