Back in the day I was a bad tight or loose passive player.. I hated it but it made me more money because I didn't hand read..
Then I discovered poker training and CLP and I became much more aggro.. And tighter in certain spots and looser in others.. And my win rate went up a bit..
Over the past few months I am learning AS A WOMAN to be more aggressive in spots and more passive in others.. And my win rate has almost doubled .. now yes its a small sample size but it has been over 4-5 months now so I think its fairly reliable.. Even @squishy
has seen it live..
So my question to all you guys is this.. If you see a tight woman playing how much do you increase your bluffing frequency? When you do tend to bluff? Turns when checked to or more so on scary rivers???
I have my own feelings but curious what you all think..
Also how much more often are you bluffing a girl vs same in men ?
So do I think this is true, here is an example:
Hero is white woman known as a "good" player.. V1 button is an aggro asian gal that seems to be raising alot in pos.. V2 bb is another bad player who makes some weird plays.. earlier in the session he donk bet big on river vs Squishy with just KQ os when the front door flush came in.. villain showed me this hand ...
so with $75 in the pot hero has AJ os and although I think I am likely to have the best hand AJ isnt that great and I am in the sb and really didnt feel I could get called by worse if I 3 bet and these two are pretty bad and I want to keep both in the hand..
: 6 x 3
:.. I check bb checks and V1 makes a rather small bet of $35.. so I decide to float.. and bb calls too.. hero doesnt have the As..
i check bb checks and now villain bets $125.. seemed weird she would bet small and then bet so big.. but I have top pair now so I call.. also given the flop was more wet I feel she can have a flush draw.. now bb check raises to $255.. v1 insta calls.. so yeah she has to be on some kind of draw.. I am torn.. can this guy have JT? why would he raise so small? I decide I just have to see the river and I call.. pot is now .. $950 ish....
River brick.. I check bb bets almost instantly $350.. v1 folds in disgust.. and now back on me.. like on turn I am torn trying to think of a value hand that he would play this way.. so eventually I call and he says "good call" and flips over J
complaining how much "equity" he had on turn.. just like in the hand with @Squishy
I do think he wasnt exactly sure what to do so he just bets as a default since that is better than checking..
now this might not be the best example of bluffing the tight girl but I have had plenty of examples when I cbet with say an overpair and when the board pairs say bottom pair I check and get two streets from guys that think they can rep top pair only for me to show down my overpair and win a nice pot.... even on wet boards I get alot of value this way.. and in similar situations I bet turn and they just fold.. so its like they fold to my barrels but if play dead they take it as a weakness and a green light to bluff with pretty much whatever they are calling my flop bet with..
well let me know what you think.. thanks!!
