re: Poker & Live Play Thought
Up front I will admit I have not read that book. But as with so many of the other poker books
out there, the idea is not to look for specific things, but to work on improving you game in particular tho generic situations.
Read between the lines. I'm reading HoH1 currently, well, actually studying is a better description of what one does with that book, and I never expect to get into the exact situation he describes, yet find myself often in generically similar confrontations. He describes an approach to the actual play of the game, Caro adds his take on some of the more obscure aspects of the game.
I have read Caro's articles in the mags, and have a feel for what he is getting at. If he says look for the guy who scratches his nose before a big bet and respond like this..(blah, blah, blah), what I would take from that is to look for repeated mannerisms and consequent actions or inactions of every player at the table.
You can probably bet they are watching you. So now you know they are watching you, and you can manipulate your mannerisms to suit yourself, but they know you know they know you are watching their mannerisms, and will counter intuit your interpretations of their mannerisms whilst they know you know they are watching you do likewise!
