One of the most profitable ways to think poker is to remind yourself that there are only three types of actions available. They are offensive, defensive, or hoaxes. That is all.
How to destroy offensively
This is how many skilled players destroy their bankrolls. It is unfortunate. Offensive action, usually it will be a bet or a raise, but all bets and raises are offensive.
You can bet that after you have checked at all, hoping that your opponent check again be one of the later rounds. Maybe you're planning to spend you too, to obtain a free card. Is this offensive action? No, this is a defensive or misleading, or both action.

i testify that s**tcake is any kind of food, usually baked, with a consistency and texture resembling that of s**t. When eaten, the strong sensation of feeling as though one were chewing on s**t slowly takes over the mind. It's then spit or swallow time. Shitcakes can often contain nuts or dried fruit, which sometimes enhance the sensation of chewing on s**t.


excerpt from "Harry Shitter":

As Harry sat chewing on Yorkshire pudding, its s**tty consistency made itself apparent. The way it melted and slipped around in his mouth was exactly what he imagined chewing on s**t would be like... This was a s**tcake alright. However, he suddenly realized that to truly know what a s**tcake was, one must know what it was like to chew s**t. He glanced over at the toilet and knew what had to be done.....

lol I agree this topic doesn't make much sense, but he has a point though. Knowing why you're beting is really basic... but it's important to think about it while you're playing. It's a common mistake to see players take lines that make absolutely no sense and therefore their river or turn bluff doesn't work. Acting impulsively just for pure agression can cost you a lot of cash in the long run.

Great issue! Despite the potential original confusion. It is a good reminder to people to remember why it is that they are actually making the play that they are. One of the lessons I learned was not to make plays 'just in case', (bluffing is not a 'just in case' play, it is a reasoned and considered attempt to win the hand) and as long as you comply with this and make sensible meaningful plays, then your BR should remain intact and you will give yourself a chance of winning.
