Texas Hold'em is a mysterious game. Although this game allows you to have a peek to each to all the player's cards, still there is no guarantee that it is the real one. Players who find it useful as they bluff may also find winning as easy as it may seem. And players who are wise enough who among them bluffs and who does not can surely win the game.
Remember that the two cards that are in your hand are the only cards that would help you win big. Those two cards are the only cards that makes you different from all your opponents. And the only cards that your opponents are not aware of. Meaning, it is always in your discretion. The community cards are for everybody to see. This would mean that if you see the four spades, most probably you are not the only one who is in the flush.
It is important to know these things for you to be able to focus well not only what meaning of those cards to you but also how other's gives meaning to those cards. Be very careful and watch those two hands which predicts your opponent's flush and straight possibilities.
For you to be able to successfully bluff, you must be very careful in every action so as not to spill the beans. In this case, it would be the things that you do not want your opponents to know. For example, this would mean that holding on a bet until the later rounds or having a larger or smaller bet that what you think your hand guarantees you. This would would also mean controlling your physical body. For example, flushed cheeks, tapping fingers, eye movements, sharp breathes, lip biting and most of all the facial expression. Learn to control yourself and your bluffing strategy will be very successful as what you might think of.
Checking is also one way in preventing your opponents to decipher your hand. It gives your opponents the impression of you having a weaker hand more than what it truly is. This protects you from having an early bet.
Another successful way to bluff is to regularly raise and push other players to a point where they actually believe believe you are holding a strong hand. The goal of this strategy is to make your opponents have an early bet with high amounts and then later fold the hand and increase your bet.
For you to know if your opponents are bluffing, just simply read the cards. If then the community cards are in good condition, then their gestures might be real. However, remember also that the good community cards are also good for everybody. If you see that the community cards are in bad condition, then raises might be a signal of a high pocket, flush or straight possibilities.Share on:
