Harrington on Hold'em Vol. 1 discussion: Part 3
Reading the Table
: What is it about poker that makes it different from the other games mentioned in this paragraph?
What are the three categories of physical tells that the authors stress the most importance on? What are the two big points mentioned about tells? What are the two ways of hiding physical tells the authors mention?
What players, specifically, should you pay most attention to at a table? What are the four main aspects of a bettor's patterns should you watch for?
Why should you 'observe' yourself? What are the three questions you should frequently ask yourself in relation to your play and your table image? How should these questions/factors affect your play?
Some solid points and advice in this section; sorry it took so long to post.
One thing I found very helpful and important was that you not only have to look to others for physical tells and observe their table images, but you have to also keep in mind what your image is, because hands can take a completely different direction based solely on how you've played (see the AA example, which I really liked).
