Dumb Question!!!!!!!!!!

Postby kr176 » Wed May 20, 2009 4:52 pm

I see alot of players wearing shades at Cash Games..........just wondering what is the purpose?

1. To avoid eye contact?

2. To zzz wihtout being notice????

3. Just to look cool?

4. also wondering, i suspect other players can see my hole cards thru my shades reflections. Anyone tried before????

I don't wear shades so I am not too sure but as far as I know:

1) Your pupils will expand when you get excited; so some players think thats a tell. My eyesight is not even that good to see others pupils to begin with...lol... so no problem for me.

2) You can actually stare at ppl without them knowing ure starring at them. It will definitely help to observe a player when there is a BIG bet made to see if there are any tells. At least not so rude like some players really stare down at each other. Shades at least can disguise a bit.

3) Look cool/ look intimidating factor.

I wear shades..

Mainly to hide the fact that I'm staring at my opponent...
I don't worry too much about my tells, but at least I can watch my opponent..
He'll be more relaxed and prone to show any tells when he knows i'm not looking at him..

another reason is to look at girls.

:D
