Reading Players

Postby Hably1979 » Thu Jul 27, 2006 1:19 pm

What reads do you guys and girls pick up on people. When you play live. Do there hands shake? Do they accidentally knock over there chips when reaching for chips? Do there eys wonder around. Just wanted to see what other people do. I know in my home cash game there is this one kid who comes almost every week, and whenever he tries to take a stab at the pot with nothing his hand shakes, as he is putting his chips in for a bet. So i would just like to see what other people pick up on when trying to put a read on some one or it should be better phrased as what TELLS do people pick up on

Reading players

You can't really read players online but just on the way their betting patterns are.  You could only read a player by their betting amounts and how often they've been raising.  No facial reads can be made.  haha

Betting patterns are a form of tell.  They may not be as obvious as someone's hands shaking, but if you look for them, you'll probably find a lot more.  Of course, you actually have to watch how people play instead of reading forums, doing e-mail, etc. so that you can figure out, for example, the difference between what a person has when they min-raise from middle position versus coming in with a larger raise of 3x or 4x the BB.  Or how often they raise as a semi-bluff with a drawing hand.  Or many, many other patterns that, once you're aware of them, improve your chances of success.

It is very tough for most people to read someone,even harder for online games.I believe most are online players here,so just take your time and look for betting patterns in a person.And also most online rooms have some sort of way to take notes on an player. Use these notes to your advantage,they have helped me on numerous occasions.
