Casino games, especially offline casino games, sometimes require more than just good playing skills, coz there are many cases when a player needs more than his arithmetic or analytical powers to win a game. Like, in multiplayers casino games, players usually play against each other, and each of them has a set rival sitting in front of him whom he has to beat to win a hand. During a game, if a player could somehow manage to know about the hole cards of other players, he can better surge his winning chances. This excellence of finding other hand’s strength and pretending own cards like you have completely opposite cards, is called bluffing. Bluffing is an ancient art of gambling where qualified bluffers used to win a game by their eyes only. Today, every player knows how to bluff and how others can know his cards, so he also sharpens his bluffing skills, yet whoever holds the better qualities to bluff others, win a game.
Actually, being a bluffer is not that easy as it looks, coz learning or perhaps mastering a gaming trick, which is already in the knowledge of your opponent, is really a tough task. Bluffing is mainly used with tabled cards games where all players are visible to each player, so every player has even chances to explore his bluffing skills. Bluffing has two broad aspects: physical and psychological. Physical techniques involve noticing physical movements of others and trying to guess whether they have better cards or not. Take an example of Texas Hold’em Poker, most of Texas Holder’s games are decided by first two hole cards, there’s supposed to be a different expression on player’s face when he looks at his hole cards, coz first two cards are purely based on player’s luck where no skill works. Bluffmasters use their skills to catch the emotions of other players and try to find if players sitting after them have better hole cards or not.
Psychological bluffing techniques involve rather lengthy process where a player interacts with other players by discussing various topics – including personal ones. Players’ language, his body language, and his voice tone describe his position in the game. Some masters even use their specialized skills where they target player’s hidden nerves to force them lose their nip. Overall, being a bluffmaster involves numerous training sessions where a player has to visualize various table games and try to analyze each player’s cards strength, coz practice is the only way to learn and master bluffing proficiency which could actually make you win some handy prizes!
