One of the best plays to have in your arsenal. Similar to a donk
bet but this is only to be used for value against quasi-decent players and can only be executed out of position
. The ninja bet
CANNOT be overused or it loses it's desired effect.
When you flop
a strong hand out of position
in a raised pot, instead of checking to the preflop raiser, you wager
about 2-3 big blinds into him. This will send him into such a confused frenzy he will instinctively raise
for more of his chips unnecessarily and be eating right out of the palm of your ninja hand.
Example: Hero calls 77 out of the big blind to a cutoff raise. Flop comes 2-7-J. Hero bets 2 big blinds into the preflop raiser. Villain, not wanting to be outplayed thinking this is a feeler bet with a weak hand, shoves double the pot with AQo. KAPOWEE, ninja owned!
