Bluffing and Slowplaying

Just like the title says, what are some good spots to bluff in PLO besides holding blockers and in which situations do you slowplay? It seems like I always get in bad situations when I slowplay on the flop. I know this is a broad subject but I need help.

Re: Bluffing and Slowplaying

I'm a microdonk but here's my 2c. slowplaying in PLO is rare since with 4 cards it's easy to have a piece of the board. if you have AA on Ad2d7c, you should still just bet. I usually only do it if I have supernuts in a low SPR situation. with high SPR I rarely slowplay anything, maybe something like KK on KK2 rainbow board where it's crystal clear you need to badbeat someone to win a big pot.

as for bluffing, it depends on blockers, board texture and opponent's stats. perfect scenario is if you can rep something and have blockers against a player who's not betting strong and is not a station.

I agree but would add that as well as simply slowplaying to allow someone to catch up, checking to seem weak and (hopefully) induce bluffs is often the only way to get paid off (especially OP).

It always helps to know your opponents (and at least as importantly to know how they see you). Some will always attempt a position bet if they sense weakness (especially if checked to on the turn). Whereas others (a few) will fold to a bet but call because they suspect a bluff (some because your bet's too small; some because it was too large).

And then there was the player last night who two-bet shoved into my nuts on the river ... Ah, the micros.

Re: Bluffing and Slowplaying

Top set with NFD are pretty good spots although typically these will be raised flops PF so worth betting 30% of pot here rather than checking back
