Poker in Magic, part 4/4

Final part is about “tells”. A tell in poker is a change in a player's behavior or demeanor that is claimed by some to give clues to that player's assessment of their hand. A player gains an advantage if they observe and understand the meaning of another player's tell, particularly if the tell is unconscious and reliable. For instance, tell is when we know that our opponent beats his lip when he has good cards. Dan Herrington, who is poker expert, grouped tells into three categories: facial expression, body language, gestures. The most reliable and the clearest signs, which our body sends, are gestures.

Most players are conscious of necessity of controlling the facial expression, but they do forget about controlling other parts of their body or their behavior becomes unusual. A player who all the time was talking when he drew his starting hand suddenly mutes may send us sign: be careful, I have good cards. What is more, often players who has a good hand sit upright or their hands are shaking.

Besides observing behavior of yours opponent, you should keep two simple rules in your mind. Experienced player is conscious of his tells and he hides them better than a new or advanced player. Beginners show their true feelings by the gestures. They getting nervous and yearn when they do not draw a card which they would like to. Furthermore, weak means strong, strong means week in gauging play of unknown opponent. Usually, a human being tries to hide his true intention by acting in a totally opposite way to what he in fact thinks. Thus, players who hold weak hands attempt to convince other player at the table that they are strong: staring down an opponent. Whereas, players who hold strong hands tend to try to disguise their hand as being weak. They attempt to fly under the radar by being a passive player at the table: not making direct eye contact, they are friendly and talkative. If he says with unnatural confidence and loudly “keep” there is a high probability that he has a weak hand.
