I have been watching a lot of poker stratergy videos lately and i like to think i have been implementing my game with new aspects which i do trial over short periods, some times maybe i give up on advice a little premature (just like your dad ) My friends and i have always floated each other in our home game there is nothing better than pulling off a sneaky bluff against the players that know you best , I have made a very good return at the G casion of late by floating in late positions i dont know if its an image i manage to potray, but and its a BIG BIG but i had never managed to play the float propperly online . So much so i cut it out of my game totally . Then it happened i watched a tiny clip from issac haxton and i thought id give it a new try started looking up videos and i think i am getting into my game with just a minor tweek from what i was trying to do for years and failing .
So come on what part of your game of late gives you the most pleasure no matter how small ??

Bluffing should be part of any good poker player's repertoire of moves, but can be harder to pull off online. It is all a matter of circumstances, your opponent's interpretation of your hand and your interpretation of his hand. e.g. If you raised strongly preflop and get a call from someone who limped in, A on the flop to which he checks, you can bet the A whether you have it or not and see what happens. Beware of bluffing too often though! Good players will detect it and reraise you, even if they don't have the cards because you have been bluffing too much. GL!

Im always trying to cut down on bluffs everytime i try to remember not to bluf , mostly on river ... bluffs always slip into my game thats why i try to cut down on them so when its really necessary it more likely to get away with it . i usualy like to shove on turn when he waits for the flush )

its all part of a poker game, you bluff... some are successful using the strategy especially if your playing in the late position... in late position is where anybody is most dangerous, you could control most of the outcome of the game... me, when holding premium hands, i ussually raise or move all-in... i^d love to control my opponents from there on... lol
