Do you ever have that itch? The itch to wager, to head to the nearest gambling establishment, to find a good stakes casino game of Texas holdem, to sit at a Blackjack table for hours on end. I like that itch. And I really like to scratch it.

I also love to watch people bet. No 2 poker faces seem similar. When I wager I like to feel I put on a poker face that is impassable. But I know I’ve specific gestures. For 1, the only time I smoke cigarettes is when I bet on poker or Black jack. And then I chain smoke. But I smoke whether I am succeeding or losing, no matter whether I have a great hand or bad.

I once wagered in a very weekly poker game. The casino game was generally five card draw. There was a player who bet with us each and every week who usually wore a hat. When he was dealt a good hand, unconsciously, he would start touching and wagering with his hat. Pointless to say, he by no means won.

The greatest poker player I ever saw was a person who made additional actions and signals at a poker table than anybody I had ever seen. He was flawless in the way he dressed. Constantly an costly suit and tie, shoes shined and nails trimmed. He was fastidious in this manner. And he was usually brushing his pants or rubbings his hands or putting his chips in tidy little piles.

I use to examine him for long periods of time. I’d attempt to see if I could notice his tell. Picking fuzz off his shirt- did this mean he was bluffing? Stacking his chips in a short pile – did this imply he had a good hand?

Several years later I ran into him within a bar in Vegas and we had a drink. I asked him if he were aware of all those activities he produced or if they have been unconscious. He told me that each single thing he did at a poker table was deliberate. He said that everybody is often checking out everybody else’s poker face. They’re trying to detect the the tell.

So his technique was to provide them lots to believe about. His reasoning was if they have been pondering about him picking a piece of lint off his shirt and what it meant they certain weren’t thinking about their cards.

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