Hi @ all,
it would be interesting to know how often do you bluff and in which spots?! Are you the rock, who nearly never bluffs or do say "Bluffing? Its one of the most important things in playing poker!" Further more, please tell which kind of poker do play.
I´m just bluffing when i have some reads of the other player. Most time i play sngs, in cashgame i bluff a little more.

I probably bluff too much but I do try when I'm sure that my opponent can't call. My problem in the past is that I've tried too many times to bluff against a donk. It can be a good thing though to get caught bluffing as it means players are more likely to call your best hands with weak hands. If players think that you never bluff they won't call you when you hit and you won't get maximum value from those hands.
I just do cash games, no tourneys. Yes, I bluff quite often when I get a sign/read on an opponent. But I usually semi bluff more than just straight out bluff. Usually bluff based mainly on the op and what the board looks like. I don't mind if I get called on a bluff and the table gets to see it either, because I usually get more calls when I do have a hand. ----------- I voted "YES," I was typing a response before the poll was posted.

i dont like bluff becouse u can lose a lot but i know that my friend is a king on bluff he bluff very often but not lose so much as i think i good bluff and u can earn a lot off money . But 4 me silent and clever game is much more earnieble then bluffing
Bluffing with air, online? Not often, probably only against an oppenent i have a good read on, or one who's shown alot of weakness throughout the hand. Cbett alot though, & semibluff alot esp if i have OESD + flush draw, i will happily check-3 bet an opponent so when i do hit one of my plenty outs im picking up a sweet pot & i'll be just as happy to see him fold to my semibluff. Live, i think i probably have been bluffing too much lately, since at the stakes ive been playing theres alot of ppl who just plain suck & are ready to call down with bottom pair, kinda like the microstakes online.

I bluff a lot. I dont know what you consider to bluff, but i think i am the kind of player who is bluffing most of the time. Making slowplay with big pairs and betting hard after flop with 72 off, everything to win the biggest pots i can reach. ITs all part of the game. If you are consistent with a certain technique, even if oponents use software to study you, you will always be able to trick them.
Not so much because I usually play low limits and there's no a considerable advantage to bluff there. Anyway I agree with them who say in cash games it's more profitable to bluff or in a final hands of big tournament

On a cashtable I can play 2 or 3 hours and never bluff; i can bluff ten hands in a row, just depending on the opponents and how my "flow" is. Sometimes I fold AKo pf, because I "know its not my turn to win" and I will be right, another time I raise with any crap because everyone has tightened up. But to call myself a bluffking? nah

I bluff but not often but i do it depending on my position, opponents and board . I don't bluff against donks who'll call with anything. pot size is also important u don't wanna risk getting trapped for a small pot.
