Hey, at least you SPEAK more than one language - I am from the US and when I go to Colombia, Peru or Mexico to do business I like to say "AH perdon, espaniol no es mi primer idioma" (sorry, Spanish is not my first language) as a joke a lot, as if they can't tell .

The answer to your question is essentially yes, it comes with experience. The lower the stakes you're playing the lower the probability that your opponents are paying attention to anything other than their own cards.

Do you play online or live?

thanks for the answer)

just i often did a mistake, for example when i put some range 3b|4b call for a villain, and call him raise on the postflop with weakness hand, because i think he can't have strong hand here but can bluff (according to the specified range). in the end, it turns out he called with what he should not have

this is my frequent mistake lately, especially if I'm playing tired

ps im playing online

This question and answer sequence is quite indicative of the problem that I see many players make by jumping into the exploitive deep end; the answer in particular, shows us why it's imperative in the modern poker environment that we exploit exclusively on the margins, lest we become all too exploitable ourselves.

Re: a quastion from newbie

OP I will share my 4-year-anniversary post with you because I think it will help you:

https://forumserver.twoplustwo.com/3...32/?highlight=

Keep playing and having fun - seriously, "having fun" is the most important thing. Don't let poker become a job or a college class or something like that. It's a GAME. You PLAY A GAME to have FUN.

As a reponse to your specific point, don't worry about it. As you gain experience you'll learn to spot the people who do things like play very loose preflop but very tight postflop, or crazy people who bet and raise with anything, or TAGs (tight-aggressives) who wait for a big hand and when they hit bet like they're trying to shovel money into the pot, calling stations who will not fold no matter what etc.

And it will annoy you in the beginning when you have a read on someone and then they play a hand totally contrary to what you expected, but eventually you'll learn to tell if it was bad luck or a bad decision.

Don't get discouraged - have fun!
