Do you say "two" or "deuce?" (Live tells)

Sup guys.

Was listening to the CJ podcast with Lex, and a seemingly-tilted greywolf Lex grinded CJ's gears for referring to a 2 as a "two" rather than a "deuce;" is the latter the statistically preferred nomenclature live? If you hear "I had pocket two's" do you insta color-tag that spot mentally?

Mainly asking because I'm about to make the transition to live, and I don't wanna waste EV being a noob tellbox. I got some chips for my desk that I practice ruffling while I grind now, just because that seems to be the live version of topping off your stack (aka a "reg flag")?

Been crushing 25NL for a good clip, hunting soft 50NL, so figure 1/2 should be lunch meat. I have a mirror by my terminal that I look at when I'm in big pots for my body language, and I happened upon some breathing exercises in an SFOD-D sniper autobio that really help keep my pulse down. I practice saying "what do you have behind?" and "all in" out loud before I jam, kinda with a low look like Scott Seever. My gf thinks I'm weird now, probably multiaccounting on me, but tbh she's a bare 9-high fd otf in the runout of my life, like it's whatever.

Not even considering hoodies/shades til at least deepstack 2/5, but what about tourneys? Got some sick powder blue ebay LV Millionaires waiting in the wing, but forum consensus seems to be that 5/10 is earliest acceptable level for haterblockers? But if I run deep I'm effectively playing 5/10+ with ICM adjusted, so I think in a $110 they could be advantageous for table image?

Absolutely love the name though - GIAL. Perfect.

Re: Do you say "two" or "deuce?" (Live tells)

you are thinking way to much about this...just go to a casino and play.
You will learn more there in a day than staring at yourself in a mirror by your computer...also 1/2 is a joke...people are going to push all in with their $80 stack, so it really won't matter what your tells are.

if and when you move to 2/5...if a hoodie and glasses make you comfortabgle than wear them..but stop thinking so much about it....also if you understand the game well, 2/5 is easier than 1/2, bc your moves and actions actually get interpretted the way you want them to.

Re: Do you say "two" or "deuce?" (Live tells)

In my experience, the following rules are 100% reliable:

If someone says "I have pocket deuces" then they have them.

If they say "I have pocket twos" they don't.

If they say "I have pocket twos.. no, wait, I mean deuces" then they have one deuce and one other card.

I say twos. Not sure why I would start calling the number two, deuce, just cause I was playing cards.
