Have you ever wondered how the best poker players in the world successfully bluff on a regular basis? Many amateurs make the mistake of mindlessly attempting sporadic bluffs because they do not fully understand when and why to bluff. In this book, world class poker professional Jonathan Little (over $6,300,000 in live tournament cashes) will explain when and why to bluff in order to maximize your chances of success. <br /> <br />Bluffs demonstrates how to widen your ranges and force your opponents to make costly errors. In small and middle stakes cash games and tournaments, you will often find yourself playing against conservative opponents who play in a straightforward manner. They see flops with their good hands and fold to bets when they do not connect with the board. Against these players, you can play a wide range with the intention of playing aggressively post-flop.<br /> <br />Numerous examples, featuring the play of an amateur player who got out of his comfort zone to put these tactics to the test, make it clear when you should play aggressively and the thoughts you should consider as you do so. Each situation is explained with attention to your hole cards, stack size, position, and your perception of your opponent. You will learn how to apply the concepts discussed in Bluffs in the real world, allowing you to win more money from poker.<br /><br />If you want to learn how to successfully bluff, scroll to the top of this page and buy this book.

The key to becoming a great poker player is in knowing exactly what it depends on.

They're wrong! The goal of poker is to make good decisions. Money is simply the way you measure how well you're meeting that objective.
