Bluffing is one of the most interesting strategic moves available in any game. And definitely one of the most risky and rewarding moves in poker.
It involves going on the attack, even when you are quite aware you have a weak hand.
You are no longer betting on the cards you have in your hand. You’re betting on the fact that the other person will fold. That they don’t have the nerve to match you. To call your bluff.
If they call you out, you lose.
But if they don’t, you win. Without having had the cards to win.
Bluffing takes guts. And can sometimes backfire. But sometimes, the payoff is great.
