  • Floating

    Hi all!

    I observed in my game that if someone who is floating (in position) will fold almost 50% to a bet on the turn.
    So i want to ask you if it is a good strategy that if you observed someone floating to bet the turn no metter what?

    Yes. If they fold to a second barrel often, then betting all your bluffs makes sense.

    I would caution against doing this on auto-pilot, however, until you have a decent sample size on someone. I tend to need someone to have been given an "opportunity" to make a specific post-flop play 15-20 times before I trust the stats. i.e. if someone's called the flop and then folded the turn half the time, but has only seen the turn 8 times, the stat is virtually meaningless. They might have been "floating" with a real hand more often than you think.

      But what do they do the other 50%? What do they do when a potential scare card hits? When you bet into an opponent they have three options: fold, raise or call. You can't do the analysis with knowing the actions in all three scenarios

      One dimensional thinking is - EV.
