Looking for tells is a waste of time.

Seriously, unless you are playing with your buddies in home games and they have played poker 3 times in their lives... you are wasting your time.

When you play in casinos 99.8% of players, even recreational ones, know that they have to be careful not to tip their hand.

Except for probably two hands in my whole life, Ive never seen them. Not the ones described in books.

Re: Looking for tells is a waste of time.

Are you joking?

I have spotted the tells described in books plenty of time. Sometimes they are hard to catch and other times they are so obvious that villain may as well be playing with their hand turned up.

I will admit that finding tells is not an easy thing to do. Most of the time you can figure things out by the board or betting that is happening but tells do exist. I even had one guy tell me about a small little micro tell that he spotted... I was able to work on it to make sure that it can't be spotted anymore but it was a very small detail that most people wouldn't be able to pick up on.

Don't listen to him, Jack.

Don't waste your time looking for tells.

The games will be better if everyone just "let it all hang out" anyhow.

Don't bother, just watch the games on TV and the harmonic motions of the young and agile servers (guys or gals or whatever, your choice.)

Hakuna Metata.

Look for people looking for tells. They are obvious (because who actually hides that?).
Then feed them tells.
