Semi-bluff

An important concept that David Sklansky was the first to treat. This is bet or raise, hoping not to be followed, while having few outs if this were to happen. A semi-bluff may be appropriate if a real bluff or value bet is not, since the alliance of the two can help you get your game well. Example: you have KQ and the flop give T-5-J. If you bet now, it’s a semi-bluff. You have probably not the best hand and you would like your opponents pass right away. However, if you follow, you can always improve your hand.
