Distracting Players

by Ali on September 20th, 2012

Do you ever receive that itch? The itch to bet, to head to the nearest gambling house, to locate a high stakes casino game of Texas hold em, to sit at a Chemin de fer table for hours on end. I like that itch. And I like to scratch it.

I also really like to watch individuals gamble. No 2 poker faces seem equal. When I bet I like to assume I put on a poker face which is impenetrable. Except I know I have particular gestures. For 1, the only time I smoke cigarettes is when I bet on poker or Chemin de fer. And then I chain smoke. Except I chain smoke whether I am winning or losing, no matter if I have a beneficial hand or bad.

I once wagered inside a weekly poker game. The game was generally 5 card draw. There was a man who played with us every single week who constantly wore a hat. When he was given a excellent hand, subconsciously, he would start touching and betting with his hat. Pointless to say, he in no way won.

The greatest poker gambler I ever saw was a player who created far more movements and signals at a poker table than anyone I had ever seen. He was impeccable in the way he dressed. Always an pricey suit and tie, boots shined and nails manicured. He was meticulous in this manner. And he was often brushing his pant leg or rubbings his hands or putting his chips in tidy little piles.

I use to examine him for hours. I would attempt to see if I could notice his tell. Picking lint off his shirt- did this imply he was bluffing? Stacking his chips in a short pile – did this mean he had a great hand?

Many years later I bumped into him in a bar in Vegas and we had a beverage. I asked him if he have been aware of all those activities he created or if they had been unconscious. He told me that each and every little thing he did at a poker table was intentional. He said that everybody is generally checking out everybody else’s poker face. They’re trying to notice the the tell.

So his technique was to give them lots to feel about. His reasoning was if they have been thinking about him selecting a piece of fuzz off his coat and what it meant they positive weren’t thinking about their cards.

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