      Hello aidanthomasnoel

      Welcome on the PokerStrategy forum :welcome:

      I’m pretty sure this article is true, because if your talking you could give away some information how good or weak your hand in game is. If you feel comfortable or not and you can fake it as well to mislead your opponents to get what you want.

      Cheers,

      I remember watching some coverage of either the 2013 or 2014 WSOP ME where Steve Gee (who made the final table in 2012) was caught out in an apparent visual tell. If he was playing a borderline hand, the hoodie stayed down. If he was playing a monster, the hoodie went up.

      This happened 3 or 4 times at the same table. Antonio Esfandiari was the guest commentator and picked it up fairly easily so maybe Steve should stay away from the big money live cash games or leave the hoodie in the car. :f_biggrin:

      Or switch it around. :)
      If you KNOW that you have a tell that others can exploit, then could you not turn the tables on them?

      Rather like switching from being loose to being tight then back again -- you could use the opponents "knowledge" of your tell to trap them.

      I have played live tournaments only twice, and busted out relatively early each time -- but I don't think tells played a part.

      Peace,
