    Bluffing vs Donking

    Everyday we find and read posts about donks and how they can be find everywhere... we hear all this comments and sometimes say it, especially when we/they lose the hand.

    Then sometimes we find during the games players that brag about how good they bluffed someone... with a 27 hand... and some other players will congratulate him on the bluff

    That same players is called or re-raised... the hand goes on and he catches a game and wins the hand in the river... it wasnt a bluff as he was called... but now... he is instantly turned from a good bluffer into a donk... "why do you play a 27 - Donk!"

    So... whats the difference between a Donk and a constinous Bluffer?

    Such a simple answer. A donk clicks call. A bluffer clicks raise.

    A donk to me is someone that calls any raise/shove or chases crazy hands like hoping to hit an ace. Bluffing is done with the intention to win the pot with nothing. I see a big difference.

    Actually this is the difference between semi-bluffing and cold-bluffing. It is always better to bluff with any equity than without equity. I dont think cold bluffing makes you a donk though, it is a move that should be used very seldomly in the right situations.

    donks do not think, bluffers think. all a donk can see is their two cards and not think about what opponent has. bluffers make stategic bluffs based on situations

    In the beginning God said : "The four dimensional divergence of an antisymmetric second rank tensor equals zero", and at once there was light.

    I agree with Stephy on this one.
