Hide hole cards?

      Recently I tried playing without seeing holecards (but you can peek at them if you move your cursor over) with some success. I find this playing style helps me to concentrate on reading other players on my table. It also feels less guilty to reraise with a lesser hand against maniacs.

      From a perspective of my opponent, it should theoretically increase the difficulty to read my hand, since sometimes even I don't know what my cards are. When I play this style, I reduce the number of games that I play because it takes more time to move my cursor around.

      Starting hand chart totally thrown out of windows? Not really, it is still useful and remains in my mind. Having said that, there are a lot of situations where you can apply a comply or explain principle.
