In order to spot a tell you need to accurately watch your opponents on each and every hand. Watch for any type of wagering sequence or physical tell that relates to the strength of their hand. If a competitor consistently breaths deeply when he has a big hand, that’s a tell for absolute strength.

Concentrate on your competitor’s mannerisms and your earnings will soar.
