  • Bad bluff target !

    It is a $1.65 buyin MTT with 89 players on some other website. 1500 starting stack and 7 mins blind level. We both had 1500 starting stack it was 3rd hand of the tourny. It is super fish infested MTT. People are saying it's a bad idea to bluff fish Maybe it's a fold in 1st level but post-flop I could have just given up, I don't know what I should have done post-flop differently other then just giving up once opponent called my C-bet.

    Remember that old saying that goes something like this... Play tight against loose players and play loose against tight players? Well this is a prime example of why this saying still holds true.

    Raising preflop is fine and I too would c-bet the flop but giving up on the turn is best especially at this blind level and against fish. The turn card gives you an extra out but it's not a bad card for his range.#

    Bluffing off nearly half of our chips at this stage of the tournament is a massive leak.

    Cheers, Chris.

      I think if I was up against even 1% sane player he would have thrown away his hand at some point. I was very much sure that he is either on draw or have very weak pair. So read wise I was correct, but the next thing I should know if they are capable of throwing away bottom pair.

      It's like you if you are 5-betting preflop a fish with whatever hand you have, and you put him on TT-JJ or AK. You know that almost every good player will fold once 5-betted but other thing we should know is if that player is capable of folding JJ preflop, if not then no point bluffing them.
