The Math Behind RIVER BLUFFS | SplitSuit

(Re)build your poker strategy from the ground up with CORE from Red Chip Poker:

When it comes to bluffing, there is basic underlying poker math that helps you know if a spot if good, great, or setting chips on fire. Jane asked a great question about river bluffing and why a specific bluff is breakeven – and SplitSuit breaks it down with a simple answer.

Answering this question requires two basic concepts: the breakeven percentage and the basic EV formula. These concepts help us see why a 1/2-pot bet that results in villain folding exactly 1/3 of the time nets out to a 0EV bluff. At first glance, this math may seem scary, but if you practice with this for just 15 minutes per day for 2 weeks – these things will start to become second-nature.

Keep in mind that CORE has lessons on all of these concepts including the breakeven percentage, EV (both basic AND advanced applications), and bluffing as a whole. If you are serious about playing better poker and learning more efficiently – you can’t go wrong with CORE. Dive into the first lesson today and enjoy!
