Nick Schulman, the creator of the most popular card game ever invented is a master of many things. Nick is a writer, an author, a motivational speaker, a self-help author, a motivational speaker, and a poker enthusiast. But Nick is not only one thing.
He is an all around good guy. Nick understands that poker isn’t all about bluffing. Even though he may be the greatest poker player of all time, it doesn’t mean he has to lie in every single hand. It’s also not like he is always doing something dishonest.
Like the old saying goes, poker is a game of deception and bluffing. The trick is knowing when to use both. Nick understands these concepts to a certain degree and has been known to use the one or the other for each of his poker games.
Poker is not all about the big name pro players that are the focus of television shows and movies. If you think about it, those guys are millionaires for a reason. They are rich and in a position to cheat their way to the top.
If you want to learn how to bluff Nick, you have to first understand the game. Here is a basic poker lesson Nick teaches.
When playing against the house, it’s the experts and the bluffers that win. But it’s the lesser players that lose. The lesser skilled players will use bluffing tactics and trickery to get their opponents to fold, which will then give them an advantage against the house.
“Bets” are a bluff that use your betting ability to lure your opponent into making the first move and then go all in on your bluff. In a straight draw game, the novice will bet and follow the same path. They will start with low hands and bluff when they get to higher hands.
In the end, the novice draws out his money and the novice ends up losing more money. The rookie is the type of player that can’t bluff because he plays with his head rather than his heart.
In straight draw, there are two ways to play a bet. Nick explains that the player is either going to stick with a pure bluff or he can play more aggressively.
Nick notes that the rookie has to play more aggressively in the NIP or No Limit Texas Hold’em. You can be a master in NIP without a lot of experience at all. Nick is right and you’ll be too if you use this strategy.
Nick Schulman says you have to use the NIP strategy as a way to get as much money as possible out of your bankroll. For example, he can put in a big bet and continue to raise until the limit is reached. This makes it easier for him to get his money out of the bankroll.
The rookie has to adapt the NIP strategy. He has to play with his head rather than his heart. He has to bluff when he has the money and when he doesn’t.
