I notice if someone else bets that amount in late position, 1 or 2 players just may call it but they often fold when I bet that. Do they think I have very high pockets or two face cards or something?
Hmmm...you might have "tell" that you are unaware of....
All of a sudden, one of the players in my regular group started to really push me around on the table...it was as if I was showing my cards to him.... I'd have AK, not hit the flop and he "all-in" and fold me...etc
After a few hand, I got sick of it, went on a tilt and called him.... and found he had nothing...not even 2nd pair!
The next time we played, I decided on random hands to "fix in my mind" that my pocket cards were 27os or pp AA just before I would look at them...
sure enough, he's had a TERRIBLE time at the table vs. me ever since
Apparently, what even my tell is....it follows what I've convinced my self I have... now if I can figure it out, maybe I can get rid of it.
And yes...I play differently against women.....I USUALLY LOSE!!!
