For those that are good at reading their opponents in online play, what kind of things do you pay special attention to? What tells do you look for?
1) Pre-flop raise (very important fact)
2) C-bet on the flop or just check or check/raise (this kind of moves tells very much about your hand)
3) Also pay attention how the villain plays the turn and river...
My advice is to pay more attention in those hands that you're not involved because you can see how the villain plays
