Welcome to the Behavior/Tells Forum

Welcome to the Poker Tells/Behavior forum. This forum will be dedicated to talking about live poker behavior and tells. What kinds of things should be posted here?
  • Footage of hands featuring interesting behavior
  • Hand histories where behavior was a factor (or could have been a factor) in decision-making
  • Questions and thoughts on behavior and tells

I’m Zachary Elwood, the host of this forum. A little about me:

I'm a former professional poker player and I've written a couple books on poker behavior: Reading Poker Tells and Verbal Poker Tells. I've written articles about poker behavior for a lot of poker publications, including Two Plus Two Magazine, Bluff Magazine, and PokerNews. I also served as a behavior consultant for a WSOP Main Event November Niner.

Most recently, I've been working on an ongoing series of poker tells training videos. You can get a Two Plus Discount on my video series; more details here.

For those of you who aren’t familiar with me, I want to make it clear: I don’t consider poker tells a major factor in live poker. I think behavior CAN be a big game-changer, especially when playing certain opponents who have reliable patterns. But much of the time, it's not going to be a big game-changer. Some people assume, because I'm interested in poker tells, that I think they're a hugely important part of poker, and that's just not the case.

Also I want to say: I don't consider myself all-knowing or infallible when it comes to talking about behavioral stuff (and definitely not about strategy). I'm constantly learning new things, and that's one of the reasons I love the game of poker. So when I give my opinions in this forum, please know that I do so humbly.

Welcome to the forum. Feel free to reach out to me with any questions.

- Zachary Elwood

Hi Everyone:

His books as well as lots of other stuff is available there, and of course you can talk about it here, and I'm sure that Zach will be happy to participate in those discussions.
