Try call bluffing with nothing if your opponent is a pretty straight shooter or maybe is prone to folding relatively good starting hands. What makes the call bluff really strong versus the raise bluff is that it almost always keeps all of your options open before you make a bet. This gives you a little more time to get some information before you bet. The more profitable the call bluff can be depends how much information your opponents give you.
It is impertinent for you to practices the bluff technique in order to throw your opponents off guard and it can prove to be an added advantage in a game like Domino QQ as from now on it will be quite a smooth sail throughout the duration of the game.
Many bad poker players will hardly check any good hand that they may have on the turn, if they bet when the flop came and someone called them, that’s quality information that you can use to your advantage to call their bluffs. I suggest you call them on the flop and then see what that player does on the turn. If they come out firing, then it’s time for you to lay down the hand. If this same player checks it to you, now you have good intel that this player has a pretty weak hand, and you can make a bluff that will make you some money.
When you bet the flop, and there is someone behind you that calls, you should probably sometimes check raise on the turn. Sometimes make this play with a bad starting hand, but most of the time only do it with good starting hands. This play is most advantageous because it provides you with a lot of information. However, the information that you do give to other players on the flop and on the turn should be of little use to them. Stick to the basic strategy of checking bad hands and betting on good starting hands. To keep your opposition guessing though, you should definitely sometimes check bad hands, then try the check raise bluff. When they are out of position they will not be able to get a good read on you, thus they will probably fold.
