Tells are the things that give away your hand in poker. They are the things that make the cards you are holding. You can read tells from any player at the table, but most especially when playing online many players have little or no idea of what their tells are, or how to look for them.
If you know how to look for tells in online poker, you can make a faster more informed decision than if you played live. There is a certain amount of information you can get just by looking at a players hand. In some cases, knowing the exact play will tell you much. In other cases, you may always know because no one else knows what you know.
One of the best ways to look for tells is to watch the player as they make their hands. Observe their body language, their playing style, and their reaction to certain situations. This is also a great way to learn your opponents since you will be able to see their “tells.”
One of the best ways to find tells online is to use a program which will gather all of the above information on your opponents at once, and then display it for you on a poker table. One of these is Poker Tracker.
It is well worth the money to spend a little time learning how to look for tells in online poker. Taking this one step further, I have developed a simple little chart which you can print off and use as a quick reference. It includes a color scale ranking of the various physical tells. The quick reference chart can be found at the bottom of this article.

You will notice that there are some that are very obvious, and others that you will not find at all. I have included those that are very obvious, and I will also include those that you can’t see. These are the tells that you must be aware of, and be prepared for at all times.

Here is a little example. Let’s say someone enters $100 on the Bellini exchange at a time when the price is $0.50. They are the kind of guys that only play the very big hands, and fold at the first sign of trouble. You notice, almost instantaneously, the same group is suddenly risking $1,200. What is the risk/reward ratio now?
If they are the kind of guys who are always a threat, it is obvious that they are not risking $200 to win $100. If they were, they would be taking a lot more risks and could be easy to read. A risk/reward ratio of 5:1 or more is indicative of someone who is ready to make a mess out of everything.
If a risk/reward ratio is low, players are less apt to be reckless and more apt to care about their money. Playing with the house’s money is always a bad idea, unless you can justify the risk with a high payoff payoff.
How do we know that the people we are looking at are the right bets for the situation? Easy. We don’t. We don’t need anything more than that. People’s betting patterns drop rooted on human nature. Addiction to gambling follows trends. When the trend is upwards, people will usually get more addicted. When the trend is downwards, people will usually get less addicted.
Let’s say that a person is starting to see winning weeks more frequently, and losing money less frequently. When the trend is upwards, they are obviously getting better and better. When the trend is downwards, they might be on their way to becoming what is known as “a 7meter.” The opposite would be if the trend was upwards, and people were losing more than they were winning.
That is the kind of thinking that leads to making a lot of money, marketing for gambling, and developing systems and plans for making money by utilizing the psychology of a risk-reward mentality. Watch the news, and you will see a lot of stories about people who made a killing, just by playing roulette.
I have, in the past, seen people pay $1,000 dollars to join a tournament, win a bracelet, and then go live in Las Vegas and “retire” from “re-entering” the tournament a winner. It didn’t work out for them, but it could have worked out for them if they had known about this “strategy” years earlier.
I have, in the past, seen people play for a living and still go to Vegas every now and again.
