The Triple Barrel Bluff – Poker Strategy Power Moves

Every serious poker player has an arsenal of special poker moves they use to beat their opponents. Today we'll show you one of the best moves: the triple-barrel bluff. It's called a three-barrel bluff because you fire three bets to force your opponent to fold, one on the flop, one on the turn, and one on the river. To triple-barrel bluff successfully you need to remember these three things. #1: Tell a believable story. If you raised preflop, for example, your opponents will tend to put you on big cards so bluff more on boards that match up with what your opponent thinks you have. #2: Pay attention to the cards that come on the turn and river when deciding whether to keep bluffing. Overcards and cards that complete draws are great to bluff at if you put your opponent on a hand like top pair. #3: Never try this move on a calling station. If your opponent can't make a fold it's not going to matter how believable your bluff is. Triple-barreling is so effective because a lot of players will call one bet with marginal hands, but they won't be able to make the tough calls on the turn and river when the bets are getting big. So if you often find yourself making a continuation bet, then shutting down, and losing to a marginal hand at showdown, you should consider firing the second and third bullets if the conditions are right. As your reads get better you'll start to get a feeling for when your opponent isn't confident about the strength of his hand. That's the time to ramp up the aggression and consider a Triple-Barrel Bluff.
