re: Poker & How do you stack YOUR chips?
Theres something about how you stack your chips in Caro's Book of Poker Tells!
A player who stacks chips by value, in piles of x amounts are usually conservative players - alot usually have a small stack on top of their stacks which represent their profit - so betting the value of their profit can force them from a pot!
(Something like that anyway)
This is generally true but you still have to be observant of individual players, it's kind of 1 + 1 or multiple tells.
I normally like to stack 1 dollar chips in stacks of 10 and build pyramids, 5 dollar chips in 25 or 50 dollar stacks in pyramids if I have enough. I've not played with larger chips ... lol someday
I will however sometimes if the conditions are right at a loose table with a bunch of inexperienced players just rake in my pots and let them sit in a sloppy pile to give an image of inexperience or that I'm generally a sloppy player. I will also do this at a conservative table if I think I can get away with it, depends on players and mood. If I think how my stack looks to another player makes a difference I will try to use that to my advantage.
