The essence of this tactic is that if your opponent is bluffing, you should not scare him with an early raise and give him the opportunity to put money in the pot in the next round of betting.In the final round, be careful when raising from middle position.Ifyou are sitting in middle position in the final round, you should only raise on two occasions:
If you have a very strong hand (and still not always worth raising)
If you have a weak hand and are bluffing, in most cases, with a more or less strong hand, you should either call the bet (usually) or fold (sometimes).
The reasons for this behavior are outside the scope of our discussion today, but analysis shows over and over again that a constant raise from middle position in the final trade with a really strong but not super strong hand is rarely your bestจีคลับ bet.
Capo in Late Position
Often, house rules limit the number of bets to four (bet and three raises). This limitation is called Kapo. The last raise is also called the capo. On all betting rounds (except the last one), capo will be much more attractive to you from late position. Because even if you don’t think you are the top favorite in the game, you can raise without fear of getting another raise in return. Then in the next round you have a chance that your opponents will check. If this happens, you can either take the “free card” or place a bet. This will only be your decision, depending on your hand. You get this pleasure thanks to your late position capo.
Early round tip
In the early rounds, when in late position, try to play very loosely with your minimum hands in response to players who rarely use the Sadbag. You can take matters into your own hands by placing a bet from late position. In the next rounds, opponents will often check to you, and you will have a choice – take a free card or place a bet.
Beware of Garbage
In Seven Stud (and other games too), you should willingly fold strong cards when your bet is unexpectedly raised by a player with garbage (very bad cards) on the table. These players do not usually bluff as they cannot show strong cards to make the bluff convincing.
We are inclined to think, to reset the strong cards that look just as your opponents is clear that they can make a strong hand. Opponents with less excitement will bluff if you show strength.However, be careful not to fold very strong cards. This can tell your opponents that you prefer to fold strong cards to make them bluff.
The Right Image for the Players
The more loose and unpredictable your image is, the more successfully you can fold strong hands. Think you yourself are less likely to bluff or bet on a loose or risky player with edge cards in your hand. Your opponents think the same. Therefore, if they bet (with your loose and choppy image), it means that they have a stronger than average hand.
