Watch your opponents habits

Postby Enuenated » Sat Mar 18, 2006 3:00 am

Especially when you aren’t in a hand. The best time to study is when you aren’t emotionally invested in the hand, and you can make more prudent observations. Watch how opponents bet, and how much they bet, in what position are they betting. Learning how your opponents play is key.

my hardest part on the habit area is time they use on decision making--i never know if in fact they are really thinking about something or if their connection is slow or mine is

OR if they are doing it on purpose.  I try to mix up my bet timing so someone doesn't think they have me patterned.  Don't know if it helps much or not though. :?

For the most part that is true of reasonably good players. Fish are fish you won't be able to read them because they don't know what they are doing. Yes you might pick up on a tell when they have a monster hand but it might just be a bad draw that is exciting them. Tells are for higher limits generally. Play micro and low limit straight forward and you will be way ahead of the people your playing against.

That is a good tip.  I find myself getting withdrawn from the game (and my opponent's actions) sometimes, and those valuable insights you can gain from studying your opponents in certain situations could end up being the difference between you making the right decision and the wrong decision.

I always try and make notes of players behaviours if I can get a read on him.  Even if it is 50% of the time he does something.  AP lets you make a note next to his icon.  This sometimes helps out 2 weeks or a month down the road.
