I have written it many times. “Esther Bluff” was created many years ago by my granddaughter when she was a teenager. I was a good inspiration to teach him to play Texas Hold’em. Apparently, poker isn’t the cup of tea. He has other interests in life.
But while I was teaching him the game, a funny thing happened. After a while, while we were playing hands, he beat me with our hands. Then, suddenly crossed my mind. I haven’t taught him bluffing tactics, but he’s learned it himself.
Indeed, on a number of hands, as he took my bet with so much confidence that I believed he had a big role. That gestures on his face, as well as movements of his body and head when he sits down as well as forwards to increase the huge increase in visit dewapoker. I believe without hesitation: I just know that my hand is the 2nd best.
But he made one big mistake: He did it until I became prejudiced. The next few hands, I decided to raise them when he came back to do the same movements and actions. Sure enough, I guessed it right: He was trying to bully me. His mistake was so usual that it fueled my doubts. Chances are I’m really lucky.
In absence, my granddaughter created and taught me the “Esther Bluff” – an essential strategy for successful bluffing. It’s no wonder I’m currently successful over 80% of the time, even though I’m 40% it’s break-even point for bluffing in a low / mid limit game.
I believe it is important for Esther Bluff to be confident in bluffing – and, therefore, in your fight back home for the championship as soon as possible. Also, I’ll add in addition, the Esther Bluff strategy can help you even when you don’t expect to hit all of your enemies.
For example, what if you started with a big pocket, say two aces in the hole. You are in the middle place; except for two blinds, one enemy had called the Big Blind to always see unsuccessfulness.
The odds theory tells us if your AA will be the favorite if three or more of the “opponents” are still in hand at any time you can’t catch a set on the unsuccessful (odds of about 8 to 1 challenge you). So here’s a great opportunity to force some of them to pop their cards – put on Esther Bluff.
We say “thin section”. Of course, it is useful when you grasp the hand that was made before the unsuccessful. Pre-flop, one hand was made, namely AA, KK, QQ; I don’t have JJ’s right to the hole.
But don’t do it when you’re late. Almost still, the enemy who had paid to see unsuccessfulness did not fold in that moment. The pot is so big, and they need to call the minimum bet to see the three cards on the unsuccessful – that’s more than 70% of their last hand.
Another exception is when you hold a premium drawing card (AK, AQ, AJ and KQ) before it doesn’t work. It’s not time thin. Stay tuned and see what unsuccessful raising of your hand. For example, starting with offsuit AK, you could expect to match one of your two hole cards at about one in 3x. When that goes on, it becomes more logical to prop above the unsuccessful to thaw the garden, giving your top rankers a better chance of surviving all the way to the river.
As if those 2 examples were lacking, Esther Bluff’s strategy has one more – less obvious – utility: Your enemies will immediately notice how your chip rack has grown. In an intuitive way, some of them will be hesitant to play against you while you are raising. This includes you have a greater chance of success. Try it, you will love it.
