This is a discussion on Poker Tells within the online poker forums, in the General Poker section; Did you know someone with obvious tells that you play frequently? what was the most obvious tell that you saw?
In my area game I notice a bunch of tells from beginner to mid advance player. But I dont tell here these tell. Each person have is own personal tell to satisfy himself. Learn by books and lot of video by the net.
Yeah, I remember when we played with some friends. I was with J10 of spades. The flop was 2sJd6s I 3bet and the other guy called. The turn came another 6 and he made some obvious move with his eyes that he hit something and then bet 2/3 of the pot. I called and I got the flush. I went all in and he called. But hell he also had a flush but higher I am not sure why was he so happy about the 6 of hearts on the river but it was a nice bluff and that move with his eyes made me fall in the trap .
Tells online are much harder to read. You can gather tells by how they've played previous hands. I mean a donk is going to play like a donk, but u can weed out the conservative players vs aggressive etc.
Live poker is totally different. It's much easier to sweat an opponent out whether by eye contact or body language.
One guy I have played with a few times has betting patterns I watch. A Check/call BB only he wants a cheap flop and has nothing, 2x-3xBB bet he has connectors, suited, or a couple face cards, and he ships his chips with Ace and anything. I visit a few casinos so I won't say where and when he plays, but it is fun to know these little things.
I am told I look at my chips from the corner of my eye when I hit a solid flop but I refuse to be that unibomber looking guy wearing shades inside. If people catch me great, but it does add to my bluff potential since I have been called out on it. Haha
In my experience poker tells are nothing like you see in movies or tv. I have definitely noticed subtle things that have given away hands but it's not all the time and can be very subtle. Eye contact, twitching, etc are usually good indicators.
