Do you ever acquire that itch? The itch to gamble, to head to the nearest casino, to uncover a superior stakes casino game of Texas hold’em, to sit at a Black jack table for hours on end. I like that itch. And I love to scratch it.

I also really like to watch people wager. No two poker faces seem similar. When I gamble I like to consider I put on a poker face which is impenetrable. But I know I have particular personal habits. For 1, the only time I smoke is when I play poker or Pontoon. And then I smoke. But I chain smoke regardless of whether I am winning or losing, no matter if I’ve a beneficial hand or bad.

I once played in the weekly poker game. The game was always 5 card draw. There was a player who bet with us each week who usually wore a hat. When he was given a excellent hand, unconsciously, he would start touching and playing with his hat. Pointless to say, he in no way won.

The very best poker gambler I ever saw was a gentleman who manufactured much more movements and gestures at a poker table than anybody I had ever met. He was flawless in the way he dressed. Constantly an high-priced suit and tie, boots shined and nails manicured. He was diligent in this manner. And he was always brushing his pants or holding his hands or stacking his chips in tidy little piles.

I use to analyze him for hours. I’d tried to see if I could spot his tell. Picking lint off his shirt- did this mean he was bluffing? Stacking his chips in a very short pile – did this imply he had a beneficial hand?

Years later I ran into him within a bar in Chicago and we had a beverage. I asked him if he have been aware of all those motions he manufactured or if they were subconscious. He informed me that every single single thing he did at a poker table was deliberate. He said that everyone is generally checking out everyone else’s poker face. They’re trying to notice the the tell.

So his technique was to give them lots to think about. His thinking was if they had been pondering about him picking a piece of fuzz off his shirt and what it meant they positive were not pondering about their cards.

His method was distraction. And it worked for him. In no way give up a system that operates for you.
