Poker is interesting, everyone is fighting for dominance and control and we can all disillusion ourselves into thinking we have that control when we are still dependent on catching the right cards.
yeah for sure, but the real key is to work out who is capable of catching on. most people over adjust things too much, so they play really loose then play like a nit, just to throw people off, when in reality they have been at the table for 20-30 hands.
its only really super important to do these things in games where you face good opponants often, for days on end playing the same games, otherwise just stick to doing things to maximise profit. you can get away with being pretty exploitable in most games.
