Online Poker: Playing With Tells

Everyone knows that spotting tells in a live poker room is always easier than trying to find a tell with an online player, but there are definitely methods you can use to find an online players tell.

When playing in a live poker room you can spot all of the shaking hands, clenched fists, half smiles, goose bumps, light sweating and the classic clenched jaw tells pretty easily. If you watch even longer you will notice the way someone sit is changes depending on the cards they were dealt. When you are playing online you do not have any body language to go by. All you have to go on is little details.

It is very important to pay attention to what every player does every single time. If you notice someone check and then when it gets back to him he calls a large raise or even raises himself it is time to fold. Another online tell is peoples betting amounts. You should already be taking notes on players and keep your notes handy every time you play. Many new players bet very heavy when they are bluffing and bet small when they actually have a hand. They are trying to get you to call and do not want to scare you into folding. Other players will bet heavy with a good hand and bet small when they have junk cards.

Another good indication of a strong hand is when a player bets or raises as soon as it is their turn. They have a hand so strong they selected bet/raise any or were so sure about the cards they hold that they did not have to think before they bet so heavily.

Players that check quickly are usually soft players and can be bet off of the pot. If a player takes the full amount of time and then eventually checks it is because they are calculating the cards they are holding, the cards on the table, how high the betting will go  amp; maybe checking his notes on his opponents. When you are exploiting tells you also have to watch for the expert players that will actually show false tells until the time is right to clean someone at the table up and then go to a new table. It is understandable that you’ll find the mechanics very intimidating. But with proper practice at Bandar judi online and situs dominoqq, you’ll definitely master it over time.

If you are trying to avoid giving away anything you should never bet using any pattern or system. You should mix up your betting amounts every single time. This will throw off anyone looking for patterns that you might use.

The most important thing is to watch the action unfold every single hand. Watch it from the first bet until the hand is played out and take notes the whole time. Even if you have folded do not start watching tv or go fix you a snack if you plan on learning your opponents tells.
