In this thread I shall elicit opinions about how to bluff the LAGfish.
Contrary to common opinion I don`t agree that its acceptable to become a tight pussy when faced with a adjustable and smart LAGfish. I agree with most that one needs widen ones calling range, but also on boards like this when there isn`t much hand that can call, I feel that a well-timed rebluff and maybe even rerebluff can be imperative to maximizing ones crush rate versus this type of opponent.
Feel free to post some hands where you yourself bluffed away a LAGfish... successfully or failingly.
Hero (CO): $1,971
Excuse me but I did not have my stats recorder at the time of play.
BTN: $2,803 - tight, nitty player on a heater
- The LAGfish in question
BB: $390 - another bad reg who is slowly bleeding his moneys away to the rest of the table
UTG: $1,144 - This player's play is reminiscent in style to that of legendary David Peat 'Viffer'.

Pre Flop: (pot: $8.50) Hero
UTG raises to $14
calls $14, fold
calls $12, BB
Flop: ($58.50, 4 players)
checks, BB checks, UTG checks, Hero bets $43
, SB raises to $112
, Hero raises to $275
When he raises I feel he is respondng to my clear Position Play with some nonsense or the rare triple KKK, I do not feel he has a pocket pair much as he must 3bet the higher ones preflop and a lot of K-rag fold or 3bet pre, KA and KQ 3bet pre, other K`s trap some amount of the time etc. All in all I feel this LAGfish is particularly prone to have excessive air here.
Turn: ($608.50, 2 players)
checks, Hero bets $428
Well, so he has less air than I thought, but still some nonzero amt, given I probably check back the flush draw; if he has some kind of fd himself it likely avoids the 7 given flopline, and possibly he can have a 4x or 55 too. Who knows. By the time of the turn we have each invested around 300 Dollars into the middle so I think there is enough ammunition yet to blow off all the above hand types for sure, each alone not substantive but combined representing a decent part of his range. Katchoo Katchoo!!!
