What is the right **bluffing frequency**? It is a frequency that makes it impossible for your **opponents** to know whether to call or fold. *Mathematically*, optimal bluffing strategy is to bluff in such a way that the chances against your bluffing are *identical* to the pot odds your opponent is getting. Thus, if, as in the example just given, an opponent is getting 6-to-1 from the pot, the chances against your bluffing should be 6-to-1.

Then that opponent would break even on the **last bet** by calling every time and also by folding every time. If he called, he would lose $20 six times and win $120 once; if he *folded*, he would win nothing and lose nothing. Regardless of what your opponent does, you average winning an* extra $100* every seven hands. However, mathematically optimal bluffing strategy isn’t necessarily the **best strategy**.

It is much better if you are able to judge when to try a **bluff** and when not to in order to show a bigger **overall profit**. To make sure we agree on what is meant by a bluff, we will define it as a bet or a raise with a hand which you do not think is the best hand. Bluffing can be separated into a couple of different categories. There is bluffing when there are more cards to come and when there are no more *cardsto* come. Secondly, within each of these categories, there is *intuitive* bluffing, which is the subject of this chapter, and mathematical bluffing, which will be discussed in the next chapter.
