Bluffing Help on Defense
July 26, 2014 10:49AM
I have talked to a number of coaches about their defensive philosophy and found that many use bluffing help a high percentage of the time. I believe that bluffing on defenses has its place but ... when you are playing poker, if you bluff all or most of the time, your opponents will ignore the bluff and rarely get "burned". Instead if you play mainly strong hands and occasionally "bluff"then opponents are unsure and may play more conservatively.

If you do not hard help and recover or hard help and rotate then IMO the bluff is wasted. Coaches talking about bluffing talk about it as a mainstay of their defense not a change up. Strong players that are never hard helped will simply power through the "bluff". They also seem to allow players to decide if they are bluffing or not. I believe that this leads to a gray area in accountability.

What do you all think?
