View on Ipods/Headphones Live?
I dislike them! Don't wear your headphones live people! Maybe listen to a song once an hour to clear your head, but you'd be amazed how much information people spit out if you listen for it. Three examples from this weekend alone that would have cost me hundreds had I not been listening -
1 - Fat guy sitting next to me starts breathing hard in a hand, then shows a set. I got into a pot with him later with AK. Flop of K 10 9. Guy starts breathing hard again and bets. Normal play is to raise, I folded. Guy flopped a straight.
2 - A rather loose player would say "what you think I have...the 5, 6?" Whenever he added the "what you think I have" he actually had it. If he said like I could have or what do you have he was behind....but what you think I have was a cue to get the hell out.
3 - A guy showed down a full boat with very little betting and he said quietly I hate having to bet my boats. A few hands later I get involved, same guy and have trips with top kicker. The opponent bet the flop and turn, when I raised him all in. He called showing same trips, with a weak kicker. I knew he didn't have the boat because he bet!
There's probably more...But this was a net worth of a few hundred dollars! With headphones on I would have missed all of them. I know some people like the music, but audible tells
can help a lot
