re: Poker & Poker tells online.
Extract from article • Players with a name and a bunch of numbers afterward tend not to be very good. For example, "Tony743624" is most likely a novice player
You cant base a screen name as random as that as a fact they are a novice. My nic is eamesy4980 lol.
Seriously my nic was eamesy4980 for 5 years obvs cant change it so to say someones still a novice is very presumptious. I was a novice at time i made nic but thats only because eamesy wasnt available. You could play with somone who created a nic years ago. They become very experienced and you presuming they are bad then they will take your money because you have played differently against them presuming they an amateur. Also timing as this article says is mainly for high stakes 1 tablers. If multi tabling timing is irrelevant. They are playing numerous tables. I bet at diff speeds mainly because im sipping a drink and taking me longer to hit button. You cant presume timing and nics are sign of tells, it could become very costly. Im in hand i have big hand, a guy bets, my phone rings i have to answer expecting an important call, pots half my stack so i just go all in then go answer phone, guy calls i take pot with monster unawar as on phone. Come back and few hands later get a hand, playing it pot gets quite big, again half my stack, phone rings again its not my turn so i go answer landline. I come back having wasted most of my time button i go all in. Now this a tell that im bluffing?? so guy with half decent hand gunna call, last time went all in it was str8 away. You cnat base judgments on time because you dont know what the guy is doing, he could be running to toilet with bad dairohea or answering an important phone call. Only tells in online poker is chat, and how they play poker.
