Losing is never fun, especially when there’s money on the table. But whether you are playing poker, bingo or blackjack, there’s more than just money at stake – there’s also your ego, which makes losing even more bitter.
Many people think that there are a lot of pure bluffs used in the poker game but this is absolutely not correct. In fact, this type of bluff in most cases is not a good idea and it is not used very often.
In order to expect some profit by using pure bluff, you need to understand exactly what happens in the game, including the thoughts and plans of your opponents. Therefore, this technique is used by very, very experienced players. Of course, you can successfully use such a bluff, but being not a very experienced player, you risk your opponent to answer you with a call. Besides, there are tables where it is impossible to bluff.
This type of bluff reminds the blind bets since you have no idea what is going on around you. Something more, in order not to lose in poker, you just need to avoid this type of bluff, the pure bluff. But you still may use the fast bluff and semi bluff, so you have options. The best way for a beginner to gain some money is to play strictly by the rules i.e. the so called ABC poker. In other words, in case you have a high ranking hand, place a bet. If you don’t have it, better fold. And one more thing also very important – keep your mouth shut. Always.
