Looking back, I picked up Irene Edith who wrote last year in her weekly poker column on Gaming Today: “One player who never bluffed or who probably didn’t cheat was unlikely to win. Playing ABC poker alone doesn’t “cut mustard.”
It is the same we said the previous week, when playing poker in a casino, it is so important to be adept at being scammed to become a champion. We explored some of the elements of the art of bluffing – the form of deception in which most are required.
Today, we can add to this path by discussing other key forms of deception: semi-bluffing and stealing the Blinds, both bluffing systems; and then concentrate on using trickery to build a pot when you catch a monster – if especially it’s nuts or near to that.
Semi-bluffing is betting or raising the turn when you hold a strong drawing hand such as four to a high flush, or four to an open straight – if you are even holding your overcards to the scoreboard. That’s some good stuff.
The first time around, you can be a winner of the bet if your enemies suck their cards. If you call one or two bluffs / raise, thus much aloof, you still have a reasonable chance of getting your hands on the river. If you miss, related to the board and your enemy’s playing style, the continuation cliff bet can still take the pot for you – if even more so your enemy is drawing to make his hand. Most likely, he was not connected.
Blind-grabbing is another bluffing technique. Preflop, if you’re in the final place – on the Button or Cut-off – and it’s already folded for you, think about upgrading it to force out of the unreported enemy stop by JoniQQ. It is better if you have at least marginal hands if one of them gets up with good starting hands.
It won’t be a big pot, but it can pay for the blind or maybe more. Inhibition: Don’t try this if one of these players is overly aggressive (may bounce back) or loose (tends to consistently view his failure with almost every hand he works on). Therefore, think about the progress of the bench while on the player’s left side.
Likewise, think about snatching the pot when things don’t work and you are in late place – more in demand by Button, and everyone else is already checking for you. Another alternative is to grab the pan while the flop delivers a large pair. Make sure to use the Esther Bluff method.
When you catch monsters, you mean to build up the size of the pot. Deception is the ultimate technique. Here’s a great example:
You’ve distributed pocket aces. The good thing is, you want to play against two or three players. To force those behind you, raise the bet that three or more enemies are limping. Many limps are bound to call your improvement. Otherwise, just walk limp, expect two or three enemies consistently view the failure with you.
How about you raise the preflop and then the 3rd Ace falls on the flop, giving you a set of aces? Your enemies are checking on you. Right now, if you bet, they will likely discard their cards. So, just check; don’t force them out – so they can help build the pot. As your hand advances, if the board is not threatening, make your bet and expect one call or maybe more.
If you have an enemy who is constantly winning, he must be clever at trickery. Think of it when he bets or gets up in the river and calls him when you have a chance to hold the best hand. In Side III of the series, we can explore a tricky way to build a pot while you take down a monster.
