We are all used to the latest fad of having poker players cover their mouths with hoodies. My friend, who never watched a poker game in his life watched the latest Poker Masters series with me. He found it completely bizarre.
When you really think about it, it is. Your mouth does not give away any hints of a hand. Your eyes do, but the mouth does nothing unless you can't control your urge to smile.
When you really think about it, we in the poker community accept a lot of crazy shit as normal.
In baseball or tennis, if you bitch about a call or play you're penalized. In poker, if you bitch like a little girl you're Phil Hellmuth.
Mouth can give a tell.People want to cover smile,some facial expression with the mouth,heavy breathing etc...i cover my mouth with hoodie even when i play online and im in coin flip all in situaion lol i dont know why guess it gives me some luck
Unconsciously, many players imagine poker with the prerequisite “won back - got it”. This understanding remains from the traditional work, worked - get a salary. There are no regularities in poker at short distances, and there are fluctuations at long distances.
Just got my Cardschat hoodie for the upcoming Colossus with the "Team". It looks great, but I'm not sure it will taste so good. Before I played live at a casino for the first time, I worried that my ears turning red might be a tell...but for which kind of hand?...the nuts or a nothing hand? I decided not to wear sunglasses or a scarf to cover my Adam's apple. Believe me, the possible tells were the least of my problems...I am quite inexperienced compared to the average poker aficionado. Improving my game will probably do me a lot more good than covering any body parts that might give away my cards.
they do it bc you can pick up tells by breathing patterns. it's not to hide their mouth it's more to hide their throat. some ppl can't help to gulp when hitting the nuts or bluffing. on a recent pokernight in america phil helmuth said he knew a guy was bluffing bc he saw him gulp
