There are few skills in life that can be called ” art ” , but bluffing in texas holdem poker is definitely one of them. I say it is an art because when it’s done wrong it’s ugly and hideous and sometimes even painful to watch , but when properly performed by a master , it is a nice to see , like looking at the Mona Lisa. A successful bluff involves many psychological , emotional and social elements and only if all of these were considered the bluff are recorded and calculated to be effective. Bluffing in Facebook texas holdem poker with Facebook poker chips instead of real money , adds even more elements into the mix , because the players can not see their opponents faces and wagers are virtual poker chips rather than money, but there are still opportunities that dominate Facebook poker bluff. Here are some points to consider when you bluff in Texas Hold’em poker games, try on Facebook and myspace .

The pure bluff : This is also known as ” stone cold bluff ” and is used when a player’s hand has almost no chance to win . The idea is that if you can judge fairly , that other players have inferior hands and are not willing to risk their Facebook poker chips, a big bet they will cause all folding her hands . This type of bet should be equal to the size of the pot, and should only be done as a rule , if the expectation is that all the other fold is more than 50 %. For example , fails to meet your flush or straight draw , you can bet of Facebook poker chips in the pot when you make a fair assessment that the odds for all folds their cards is greater than half.

The semi-bluff : This type of fraud can not be, if your hand was blown up , but if there is still a chance that your hand might improve on the turn or river . The idea is that even if you make a strong bet that will be called by your opponent and not to scare them out of the pot , you still have the option cards that you need to pull . This illusion is best used when there are suited cards or connectors as 5 – 8 – 7 on the table that could lead your opponents into believing that you already have the straight or flush . A strong bet in this situation could always invited her hand , fold and allows you to gain a good number of Facebook chips , but you should always be aware that someone could really have flopped the straight or flush . In contrast to a pure bluff, allowing a semi-bluff you continue playing after a failed bluff because of the possibility that you have to improve your hand.

Betting before the flop and missing: Have you ever been a big preflop bet of Facebook poker chips with cards like Ace King, Ace Queen, King, Queen , etc. . only to cards like 3 9 5 autumn to see the flop ? The flop obviously do not go your way , but your opponent does not know that right? Sometimes it pays to show false strength and bluff after a missed flop.

Bluff when there are not many players in the pot : This is a simple concept that is based on the fact that it is easier to measure the hands of some players than many players . If only 1 or 2 other players are left in the round, you have a better chance of an accurate assessment of their cards and the decision about the right amount of chips for your bluff to be efective .

Optimal bluffing frequency in Facebook poker : If you bluff too infrequently the other players at the table are better than you label value , which means that you bet and raise only when you have a great hand or the maximum chance of winning. This can be an unprofitable trend where everyone knows that you only bet with great cards and so they usually choose , fold when you do this, decreasing your ability to perform pull into the pots more Facebook poker chips. The opposite of this is too much to the point that bluffing you realize what you are up to and calls your bluff and even re-raise in order to ” keep you honest ” and teach you a lesson . The optimal strategy Bluffing in Facebook Poker is somewhere in between and must be implemented with an element of randomness to throw the other player the ability to predict your hands .
