How to understand that an amateur is bluffing?
In this post today, we'll show you how to tell if you're being pushed out of the hand with a weaker hand.
One of the most reliable offline tells: amateurs love to behave this way. They try very hard to look relaxed and confident. They may even encourage you to bet or call. The most arrogant ones still like to look straight in your eyes. This is often a sign of weakness, but the opposite is also true: a suddenly quiet opponent who is looking steadily at one point often has the nuts.
Too fast actions.
Most often, when a player has a strong hand, he wants to think about how to get the most out of you: how much to bet, should he check-raise? But instant bets are often bluffs, especially against the natural course of the hand (for example, a sudden donk bet).It works both online and offline.
Lots of raises.
Even amateurs have already learned how to 3-bet on preflop in position: they often rearrange up to 30% of their hands on the button. Rely on the statistics and fight them. There are also players who like to bluff strictly on the flop while it's not expensive. For example, on paired boards a la 884. The solver likes to check-raise in this spot, but amateurs don't know about it. They will usually call trips, so what do they have?
Amateurs often do not think about what they depict. You raised AJ and got called by an aggressive player on the button. His range consists of broadway, suited aces, and connectors. The board J♣️5♦️7♦️2♠️K♥️ can be safely played by check-calling all streets: we block KJ, and with the third barrel it represents only a couple of strong hands - much more often you look at A♦️8♦️.
Tilt and big bets.
Illogical lane champions are fish who want to get revenge on you (or just win back). On tilt, they bet on any runouts, your task is to calmly check-call and try not to scare off your opponent with a raise. Also, such opponents are very fond of betting big. Their bet sizing is unbalanced, so big bets will usually be bluffs: it's rarely a draw, more often they're just trying to scare you. Don't get fooled!
