Poker Tells: Weak Hand
  • Staring you down If a player stares down at you, he may be faking confidence because he has a weak hand. He might have a few good cards, but nothing that can be beaten or drawn out.
  • Holds his breathBeginners will often hold their breath whenever they bluff which can say that they have a weak hand.
Poker Tells: Drawing Hand
  • Checks hole cards after a flopIf a flop can give a player a straight or a flush draw, most players will go through their hole cards again. They are rechecking to see if they have a good piece for it. They are making sure if the Ace is a heart or a diamond or something like that. At this point, they do not have a straight or a flush yet, because if they do, they do not have to double check on it.
  • Takes a long time before a betIf a player often looks at the pot and he seems like he is calculating, he is actually checking what his odds are with his drawing hand. He is figuring out what his chances are and if it’s worth waiting for a card that will complete his winning hand.

Before sitting on the poker table, you should be able to know whether or not you are playing with an amateur or a pro. The experienced one can actually give you false tells to confuse you.
