i'm in a tourney, 17 people left, i'm 3rd with about 10% of the chips. i go broke bluffing against the chip leader and walk out with a lousy 10 bucks. if i would have sat-out, i would have had at least 80. why does my brain puch me into stupid moves at the wrong times? -blegh-

Bluffing in my opinion is never a stupid thing, not online. I bet you played it perfect, and the idiot probably called "knowing he was beat". And did a little dance when he found out he won. I HATE PLAYERS LIKE THAT!

OHH man...that hurts... The problem with being "past" the bubble is a lot of players get a "I gotta go for it now!" with any marginally strong hand. Bluffing at this point is extremely DANGEROUS! Look at the bright side..you made a little cash and learned something about your game.......:) Cheers..jeff

Hard to play in a tourny with 500 people and not bluff at some point If you can't steal a few blinds, you can't last till the final table. Bluffing is a smart part of playing poker.

Why? because you were playign the hand adn not the game. Its important to remeber where you are adn what your playing. adn thats hard to do when your 5 hours into a tourney. but thats what separates the men from the boys :P

Bluffing is an art. It cant be done recklessly. Really take a look at whats on the board when your doing it.

Well that's something you've learnt: Don't take on someone with more chips than you unless absolutely necessary. I disagree that bluffing is such a big part of the game in online MTTs. The blind levels rise so high that, in general, when you get as far as seeing a flop, you've got to be prepared to go all in with very little. Even if you're prepared to fold and hang on for a better opportunity, most other people at the table aren't. They will almost certainly push with a 8+ out draw or 2 over cards. -So there's not really many hands that they will lay down!
There is a very easy way to return from a casino with a small fortune: go there with a large one.

I agree with the post made before me, you can't be upset with yourself because you shouldn't take on a person with a bigger chip stack then you with a marginal hand or even a bluff. Cause you have to remember that if you do go all-in he has the capability of knocking you out. If you want to bluff of gamble pick on the smaller stakes that are forced to fold a lot easier.

The moral of the story is when you're so far in a MTT don't play reckless, since you were in 3rd place you didn't need to make plays like that...let the small stack be the reckless ones and just sit back and watch yourself move up the prize money table.

Just play your marginal to stong hands more aggressive and take down the blinds and or small stacks.

"Tip of the day" "Your first instincts are better than 95 percent correct if you're a poker player. That's because your first instinct comes from all the training and practice and skills that you've learned over the years."
