Do you ever get that itch? The itch to bet, to head to the nearest betting house, to uncover a superior stakes casino game of Texas hold’em, to sit at a Twenty-one table for hours on end. I really like that itch. And I love to scratch it.

I also really like to watch men and women wager. No two poker faces seem alike. When I bet I like to believe I put on a poker face that is impenetrable. Except I know I’ve certain gestures. For one, the only time I smoke is when I bet on poker or Twenty-one. And then I chain smoke. Except I smoke regardless of whether I am winning or losing, whether or not I’ve a excellent hand or bad.

I once wagered inside a weekly poker game. The game was generally five card draw. There was a person who played with us every single week who constantly wore a hat. When he was dealt a great hand, subconsciously, he would begin touching and playing with his hat. Needless to say, he by no means won.

The greatest poker player I ever saw was a person who made a lot more movements and signals at a poker table than anybody I had ever seen. He was impeccable in the way he dressed. Constantly an costly suit and tie, boots shined and nails trimmed. He was diligent in this manner. And he was often brushing his pant leg or holding his hands or stacking his chips in neat little piles.

I use to study him for long periods of time. I would tried to see if I could spot his tell. Choosing lint off his vest- did this mean he was bluffing? Arranging his chips within a short pile – did this imply he had a very good hand?

Several years later I ran into him inside a bar in Philly and we had a drink. I asked him if he have been aware of all those movements he created or if they were unconscious. He informed me that just about every single thing he did at a poker table was intentional. He said that everybody is always checking out everyone else’s poker face. They’re attempting to spot the the tell.

So his technique was to give them lots to believe about. His thinking was if they were thinking about him selecting a piece of lint off his vest and what it meant they sure weren’t pondering about their cards.

His process was distraction. And it worked for him. By no means give up a program that works for you.
