Poker Tells

Poker is a game that the more you know about what our opponent is doing the easier it is for you to make the correct play. The player who makes the most correct plays wins the most in the long run. Being able to spot the poker tells that your opponents give can help a player very much in their game. There are even some online poker tells that will help you to determine when a fish sits at the table.

Less Than Full Buy-in

When a player sits down at a table with less than a full buy-in you can almost be sure that the player is a fish. When you sit down at a table you want to buy in for the full amount because you expect to win and want to win as much as you can. When a player sits down with less than a full buy-in you can be sure that the players aren’t very confident in themselves and that they are probably going to be playing very badly.

Posting Out of Position

When a player sits down at a table and posts their blind to start playing before the big blind is to them you can be sure that they are a fish as well. You have to pay extra money for the orbit when you do this and there is no point to when all you would have to do to avoid it is wait a few hands. When a player posts their blind out of position you should be trying to steal the pot more often because there is more money in the pot for you to steal.

Instant Minbetting

When a player bets the minimum amount into a pot almost as fast as the action starts you can almost always be sure that their hand is weak. You should make a small raise to this bet when you see it because it will be a completely free pot. Sometimes players do this with big hands for some reason. They lose a lot of value by doing this because they could make more by making a standard bet. This normally means your opponent is weak though.

Check/Fold Button

When a player is in the big blind and they instantly check when it comes to them preflop that normally means that they have the check/fold button selected. If you notice that your opponent is doing this a lot then you can start betting against them when it is folded to you in the small blind more often. The more you steal the blinds in poker the more money you will win overall in your game.

Being able to read an opponent’s online poker tells is a great way to get a better idea of what the correct play is. Knowing the poker tells to look for in your opponents can be very easy and is completely worth the extra focus it requires.
