There are three online poker tells that are highly reliable. Not 100% definite, but probably 90%+ reliable. Bandar Poker Terpercaya
- The Long Pause Followed by a Big Bet
There is a pattern or rhythm to the bets made online. For example, you bet, your opponent calls in about a second. You bet, your opponent calls in about a second. You bet, your opponent…pauses. You wait and wait and wait. Finally, your opponent raises your bet.
Guess what? You’ve lost this hand. That long pause should be a red light that your opponent has you beat.
Any time your opponent takes a long time before betting when he has only checked, or raising when he has only called, is a signal that you are beat.
Your opponent thinks that he is acting weak. Like he is confused about what to do. But, even online, the poker rule is: Players who act strong are weak, and players who act weak are strong.
- The Chat Comment Give-Away.
This happens when a player tries to influence his opponent’s play by writing in the chat box.
Example: You are heads up, and you’ve called your opponent’s bet on the flop and turn. On the river he makes another bet. You are unsure what to do, and suddenly your opponent writes, “If you have top pair, I’m beat.”
No! If you have top pair, you are beat. Again, he is acting weak, so he is strong.
- The Flop Check-Raise on a Rainbow Board.
I see online players lose more money on this play. I consider it a tell, because your opponent is basically slapping you in the face that he has a monster hand.
Example: You are in a no limit tournament and raise four times the big blind with A-K. Only the big blind calls your raise. The flop comes K-7-2 rainbow (all different suits). Your opponent checks, you bet the pot, and your opponent check raises you. What should you do?
Please fold. There is no flush or straight draw on the board, so he is telling you he has a big hand. If he just doubles the size of your bet, it means he has a set of 7’s or 2’s. If he check raises you big, he most likely has two pair like K-7.
Knowing these three online poker tells will save you money. You will fold your top pair knowing that your opponent has you beat.
