The (wrong) Art of Bluffing…
“Limit poker is a science, but no-limit is an art. In limit, you are shooting at a target. In no-limit, the target comes alive and shoots back at you.” In Poker there is a mix of luck, skill, gut feel, and big kahunas. And the one aspect of Poker that requires the most of your dangly bits is bluffing…here are some major bluff fuck ups, and later today I will post some stunners.
This first one is one of the worst I have seen, and I have done some bad ones myself. statistically the worst hand in Poker this guy has dug himself such a big hole he cannot seem to allow himself to save his playing future for the sake of taking a dent in the ego…at what time to do you suppose he was screwed?
Now I have no idea what this fellow was doing…sure, he had pocket 7s, but there were three, THREE, over cards on the table. And the betting coming back must have had him thinking. This is the problem with big bluff calling, your ego makes it very hard to back down.
When you have as many bracelets as Doyle Brunson, you’d better be as good an actor as Tom Hanks, or as stone cold tough as Chuck Norris, because you have to wake up pretty bloody early in the morning to get the better of this wily buggar!
