False tell: the Pro’s and Cons’

16 Oct , 2008 - Posted by Dan in Omaha Poker
False Tell

False Tell

Every Poker player should posses an eye that can tell the skill of the opponent when playing poker. Besides reading your opponent, giving off false tells is another skill that will aid you, and the other players. It is one’s advantage to know their opponent’s weaknesses and hide their own by using false tell as their skill.

Looking at you chip stack is one good false tell. One of the lessons a lot of poker players learned is when they glance at their chips, they are planning to place a bet. A quick glance is also used by the players to their advantage in cases like they want to draw or especially when they are weak. They do this by glancing at their chips and placing the bet on the pot.

The effectively of a false tell works on players who are in position in the Poker Games. On occasions, you can do a false tell and your opponent falls for it especially those are planning to be aggressive. This will happen when you make yourself more visible to your opponent by looking at his flop. In return, your opponent will check on your flop and then back to his stack. This will continue until you bluff at the pot or check behind your opponent. This will give other confusion to the Poker players as to what you strategy will be.

Checking how much cards your opponent has in his stack can be done with a variation of false tell. Instead of looking at your chips, you look at you opponents’ stack. This will give them an impression that you are computing how much money will they bet on, how much money will they loose by the end of the game. With this tactic, your opponents will be distracted. Some might even be annoyed and get mad at you, while other will play and even let you see their Poker cards. This will throw your opponents a bit if they are all out.

Though useful as it may seem, it also has its downfall. In some, Stakes goes up and you were not able to bluff out the pot. Your opponents have the chance to slowly play you off. It is who glances first and who will fold first. False tell may not work in situations when you have a player or an opponent who can tell if your move is a false tell or not. However this is an effective strategy with lower Limit Omaha and a lot of tournaments as well as those who sport a tough and buff image.

Deception, timing and a bit of luck. These are the keys in doing a false tell. Yes it is a form of a white lie. Remember that even professionals spent time and effort in perfecting this move. It is a trial and error move which means it does not always work. Mere sporting a tough and buff look will not help you win the game. As they say practice makes perfect.
