Start early hands with low betting – spend some time studying your opponents. The factors that require analysis are the opponent’s posture, behavior, facial gestures, gaze (if he does not wear glasses), gestures and voice. As long as a certain player shows one of these very pronounced factors in a hand in which he has won and shown the cards, you will be able to know his behavior when he really has a good hand or when he is looking to cheat.
Make big bets on the first hands: Although it seems contradictory, opponents are generally afraid of losing too much money in a short time. There is a good chance of success with this strategy, but if any opponent is lucky enough to have a good starting hand, they will surely bet too.
Personal Duels: Once you have analyzed most of the opponents, look for duels with which you already know better and try to avoid the most difficult to decipher, since they always have an ace up their sleeve.
Always show the same attitude: for example, if you start out being very talkative, try to remain very talkative throughout the time you remain at the table, since the moment you change your behavior, they will begin to decipher you. Remember that everyone is at the table with the purpose of knowing a little about each rival, seeking to know their weaknesses and thus be able to cut their budget.
Use the “All In” wisely: many people understand that using this resource scares away rivals usually is. However, this will likely be discovered at some point, and one such hit almost always ends up being deadly.
Analytical Thinking: When you know you have a very strong hand, analyze the chances of losing. You can determine this through the cards on the table, as these are a support resource for all participants. From this you subtract your two cards and thus begin to draw deductions from the chances that the rival has. If the fact that the opponent has a better hand than you seems very crazy, it is a good time to accept any bet, even the “All In”, remember that very often players seek to scare the rest to win what was already bet on table.
Be calm: if you have a chance to hit a big hand like the Royal Flush, Straight Flush, Poker or House, avoid making big bets from the start.
