“You can’t read poker players through the computer,” a friend of mine once said. “It’s not like online poker.” And he was right, but that doesn’t mean you can’t learn to read your opponents in a real-life game. You just need to be observant and pay attention to their facial expressions, body language, speech patterns, and even bet amounts.
Reading body language in poker is a key skill that can give you the edge over your opponents. If you don’t know how to read their face and body language, then it will be difficult for you to determine what they have been dealt in their hand. In this blog post, we’re going to take an extensive look at both facial expressions and body language and explain how these can help you win games of poker.
1. The most important thing to do is to watch your opponent’s face and body language .
Are they making eye contact? Do they speak with confidence or do they stutter when trying to talk about their hand? It is important to look for these clues and watch out for certain facial expressions that may give away what cards your opponent has.
If you’re playing poker online, this becomes much more difficult as you cannot see them. This is very hard to do online, because you only see the player’s hands. However if they’re playing with a webcam on their laptop so that you can see them in person then this becomes more possible.
2. Keep an eye out for any sudden movements or changes in posture, which may indicate that the player has a strong hand.
If someone suddenly goes stiff or shifts uncomfortably for example, it could be an indication of having a good hand. The opposite would be true if someone moves their hands quickly to the left or right, which usually indicates that they have a bad hand and are trying to conceal it.
3. If you see the player look away from their cards, they are likely bluffing you so that you will be fool by a false bet.
4. Watch how often a person blinks – if they blink more than usual, it means that they are nervous and might be bluffing .
Some people think that if you blink a lot, it means you have good cards. This is not true! When someone has seen their hand and are holding strong hands generally they will be more relaxed in their body language – this may translate to less blinking for example.
5. Look for a lack of eye contact – if the player is looking at their cards in a game of poker, for example, it means they have not seen anything promising. If they are staring off into space often, this could be an indicator that they have good hands and are trying to stay calm.
6. Observe their body language – are they leaning back or forward? How do they sit in their chair? If they are leaning back it means that they don’t think their hand is very good. If they lean forward, this could mean that the player feels confident in his or her cards and would like to continue playing.
7. Notice how often they touch themselves, such as the face, neck, mouth, etc. If a player touches their face or neck, this could mean they are nervous.
– A good poker player is an observant poker player. You have to learn to associate your opponents facial expressions, body language, speech, and even the bet amounts with what they eventually were revealed to have been holding in their hand.
8. Listen to what is being said: does it match up with what the person is doing? Discern for yourself what is real and false to have the upper hand.
– With online poker, you of course cannot use this. But in a real poker game you can. Start with the eyes: When they call or raise a hand, do they look down right left at an object in the room? Then what did they have when they did that?
