Bluff and Semi Bluff
If you are new to Texas holdem then you should become acquainted with the bluff and semi bluff technique. Bluffing and semi bluffing play a significant role in Texas Holdem. If you don’t have any idea about what bluffing refers to in the game, no worries it’s not very difficult to learn. Bluffing in the game involves how a player attempts to bluff to save his game when nothing or little is left with him. If the opponent player in response folds right away then the game is in your hands, if they call then you lose the game.
A semi bluff is a blend of little truth with bluff. In simple words it can also be called a partial bluff or an exaggerated truth. The goal behind both of them is same only the nature is different. A semi bluff gives you more ways to win as compare to the pure bluffing. Bluff is useful only in the case if the opponent player folds in response while the semi bluff doesn’t only give the chance to win if the opponent folds but it also helps in improving to the best hand or to catch a scare card. This way you can bet your opponents out on a succeeding round.
The right timing matters in both the cases whether you are using the bluff technique or the semi bluff. If you are not giving your smart move at the right time then you will lose what you have. Bluffing involves how you steal the pot tactfully by playing with words and it really feels good when you steal the pot smartly instead of winning it straightly in a boring way. If you are playing with a good player then you would find bluffing very practical to help you out while it doesn’t go well if you are playing with a poor player.
