In general, if I have a hand that is just a bluff-catcher, I try to keep the pot as small as possible by checking back on either the flop or turn to bluff-catch the river. So the action usually goes bet-check-call or check-call-call, and most the time you are in a spot where you beat no value hands so you need to work out whether your opponent is bluffing or not on the river. There are two hands I recently played which are interesting and illustrate the principle.
