How to Make Bluffing Pay off in a Poker Room

By: Jerome Mendes

Making other gamblers in a casino poker room can give you a big advantage. Here are some ways you can make it seem like it is your first time in a casinos poker room.

When entering the poker room you will be escorted to a poker table as soon as you are in the room make sure to look around like you have never been there before. Make sure to practice you look of awe. When you get closer to the table the other players will be looking to check you out, and if you make it seem like this is your first time in a casino poker room they will think you lack experience and will let their guard down around you.

Make sure to allow your face and demeanor to announce what kind of hand you are holding. Once it has been established with the other players that you have no poker face it will be easy to bluff them. But this can be a bit tricky. If you successfully fake them out they may begin to think that something funny is going on. Maybe at some point during the game when you have a bad hand allow a loud sigh to escape from you, then look around the table to see if anyone noticed, but donít let them know you know they noticed. Then try to bluff and make sure it does not work.

The first time you have a good hand raise the pot and keep raising it till it becomes obvious that you have a good hand. If you do this once or twice people will think you are an idiot and fold, but after that they will easily fall for a simple bluff from you. When you have a bad hand you could keep raising and chances are they will fold, but you must have good hands on the first two times you try this. If your hand is not that good someone may try to challenge you. I do not recommend trying this unless you have a full house or better.

Make sure that after you first sit down you are playing poorly. Bet when you have nothing and stay in every hand even if all you have is a wild card. I would assume that a fish like that was just really stupid and I would look forward to taking home some of their money, and this just sets them up for you to take their cash to your bank.

They way you dress can tell people how good a player you are. If you go into the casinos poker room and sit at a Texas Holdem poker table dressed like someone who is a professional player at the cheapest table in the house, with all the sponsors on your shirt, a hat pulled low over your eyes an a dark pair of sunglasses, everyone would not only assume you have never been in a real poker room before, but they will think you a fool and laugh at you. They will not suspect you to be a hustler, but make sure to play badly at first. If you dress like that and you start winning right off people will think you to be a professional player.

Always Remember you want people to think that you are a first time player, but you also want to win some money, so playing foolish the entire time will make them think that you obviously do not know how to play, but you are not going to win any of their money and they are going to go home with yours. This is not the kind of thing that you need to set up for the next time you are at that casino.
