Thing is, I have a pretty hard time resisting the urge to continually felt them(i don't want to take their money). Bluffing is slightly advanced play. When you're unfamiliar with the fundamentals, every bluff is blatantly obvious.



What is poker without bluffing and calling bluffs? :oops:

Played my first live game with 2 other kakis yesterday. Won $35.

Nicefingers wrote:well, learning tells are kinda for advanced players imo. First of all it's overrated, because anybody can give fake tells. 2ndly, fundamentals of the game far outweighs the importance of picking off tells from opponent.

Poker, like golf, demands patience and concentration. It's not realistic to be playing most of the hands you are dealt.


I agreed with Nicefingers, it is actually easy to fake tells esp for those "Hollywood" class players.
Stick to the basic and build from there will be the right way to go. Play your own hand well first then play others ^_^.

and what's tennis without lightning fast serves and wide angle volleys?

but you still learn the boring baseline groundstrokes first, right? Sure, you may get a few lucky hits off the net, but all anyone else has to do is just keep hitting basic safe shots at you, and watch you self destruct.

That's pretty much how it happens in poker too. Bluffs need to be convincing. And putting out a big bet is not the only factor. You need to know how to put ppl on hands, and that only comes from experience and knowing the basics. Nothing like shoving into the guy who has the nuts on a bluff.

you sound like a very advance player. one day given a chance if we should have a game perhaps i can learn some of the skills of the trade from you but of coz at the expense of 'school fees'.

cheers :)
