    Hard to say. Everybodys different and unique, like a snowflake.

    BeyondTells claims that this is one of the richest places to look. I have watched much, but not all of what they do. It looks good.

    Dan Harrington for one claimed watching opponents' hands was the best way to pick up tells. The issue is, we learn from an early age to lie with our face. I think it was Navarro who claimed the further you get from the face, the more reliable body language becomes. In most poker situations, that would suggest the hands are about as good as you're going to get.

    Yeah, Beyond Tells claims that a longer than usual card check is a sign of a marginal hand (because good cards and junk are easy to play pre flop). I've had limited, sporadic success making decisions based off this read. It really comes down to the player. I mean, being able to easily riffle a full stack of chips is a pretty good tell in and of itself.

    I always heard if the hand shakes putting the money in the pot it's usually a monster (from adrenaline). If the hand is steady it could be a bluff

    These last two posts just make the point. Some people are stunned when they see aces and linger over them. People won't act the same. Plenty of people are unsteady with a bluff, now where is your tell?

    Correlate or it's just gossip.

    What do you think of Beyond Tells as a course?
