Tip of the Month – February 2012

Develop and use your “Poker Face.”

When playing poker with a serious winning attitude you must know when to use your poker face.  Many people get nervous and answer their opponent when their enemy, smiling and in a jovial tone says “…so you hit the straight.”  When you start talking, you give up the read that your opponent was looking for.  I cannot describe the way in which it is revealed but you stand a much better chance of not giving away your position by staying silent and moving as little as possible. The best example I can give is an out-of-focus TV set.  As soon as you start talking, they start turning the tune dial.  It usually doesn’t take much to get a picture and the more you say the easier it is to tune you in.  Practice your poker face and when it’s important – don’t say anything.
