Talking Bluffing Strategy

Bluffing is a necessary component in taking your poker game to the next level and making some serious $$$. If you sit around and wait to catch prime starting hands, you'll find yourself getting impatient and possibly on tilt. Being able to recognize a weak opponent(s) and pouncing in an effort to steal the pot can keep you earning even when you're not catching cards. Bluffing is all about position relative to the button. When you're last to act, you have the luxury of making your play based on that of everyone else at the table. If you sense weakness at the table, you can take a stab at winning the pot regardless of whether or not you're holding any type of hand whatsoever. (Be careful not to fall into an opponent's trap.) A semi-bluff is a safer play than the full bluff in that it affords a bit of flexibility in the case that your bluff is called. An example of this would be making a huge play on a flush draw whilst holding the appropriate Ace. Knowing that nobody has the nut flush might allow you to make a play suggesting that you in fact have it, perhaps forcing out a smaller flush that has already been made and beats your Ace high.

Its true that you will have more information if you are closer to the button but another way to look at it is when you are first to act you have the first chance to bluff at the pot. This can be important in holdem when there are many flops that no one hits and the first person to take a stab at it will usually be the first one to take the pot down. And by acting first you can take the first stab at the pot.

try check-raising the flop and/or turn.......call with nothing on the flop and get crative with your bets on the turn..........bet straight out is probably the easiest way........also show a good hand where you made a very large bet on the river......this will help with a huge river bluff later.....just make sure whatever hand you are trying to represent fits your actions throughout the hand........KP

Default check raising

check raising is deffinitely a good strategy against aggressive players if you have a hand. although i probably wouldnt bluff by check raising if that is what your saying.
