Of course there are exceptions.
Experience bears this out.
The big winner, is usually potential buffer having made so many bets and raises through out the game and has been called with a full house, flush or some other strong hand many of the others players fold, thinking he possibly has another winner.
The big winner in a cash game or the big stack in no limit is often likely to push a flush draw.
Even if he has nothing in the hole.
If the flop shows two spades and he raises he will have the respect of others.
Often they will check.
If another spade comes on the turn most of the other players will assume that he has the flush and fold, making his bluff successful.
Beware of the raise that comes from the big stack after the others are in.
