Poker Tells - Online

1) Long pause - then a raise: the most common online poker tell is when players make quite a long pause and then raise or re-raise you. This normally indicates a very strong hand.

2) Automatic re-raise: when you raise and is re-raised very fast (almost instantly), this usually means that a player checked the "raise-all" button. This normally indicates a very strong hand. Some very wild players use this as well, but you would probably notice this wild player anyways.

3) Automatic check: When you check and you feel on the speed of the checks behind you that they have checked the "auto-check/fold" button, this normally means a weak hand, and you can try to steal on the next card.

4) Quick calling: when a player calls you very quickly, it normally means his hand is not very strong. He was not considering to raising you. However be aware that he might call you to the river nevertheless.

5) Small betting: When a player bets a very small amount relative to the pot on the river, it will in most cases be a "block bet" to prevent you from betting or raising him (he usually has a weak hand). This might be a good spot to bluff. If you succeed watch out to do it again in the same session, as player might set a trap for you instead. Be aware that some very tricky players use the small bet size to induce a bluff (to trap you).

6) Chatting while betting: If a player chats at the same time as he is betting, you can normally set him on a good hand. Most players don�t want to show anything when they are bluffing.

7) Post blinds out of turn: If a new player comes to the table and posts blinds out of turn, he will normally be either impatient or inexperienced, both which is good qualities in an opponent Smile

Regarding tell no. 1; this is not always the case in my opinion. I happens to me often that I have so many tables open that I cannot react as fast I would like so "waiting" can also be just "occupied".

It's a good idea to check the players connection speed. If they are showing a poor connection don't put too much faith in a long pause before they act.

When players change the usual pattern it's time to start paying more attention to what they are doing as well. A player that usually acts quickly but suddenly takes a long time even though they have a good connection is probably facing a difficult decision. The opposite means that they either have a strong hand or may be going on tilt. Either very strong or very weak.

but some grinders (10-25 tables at same time) delay play.

I disagree with the automatic re-raise. That's because a lot of players i've been played use the automatic raise or reraise to protect a weak pocket pair or a missed AK that they raised preflop. Smile Thumbs Up Smile

I also agree with you

Dead thread? I see it now and don´t think that my idea is strong for a new thread. Only need to say it...
I think that only a bet it´s a tell, time online is not a clue. You know that, isn´t it?
