What should I look for before the poker starts?

Any features in the image and behavior of the player that can give information about his style of play and the strength of his hands are called tellus. Watching and reading tells is an important element of a live game that can give you an edge over your opponents. But what is worth paying attention first of all? And how to interpret certain features of the players’ behavior?
Reading of the tell-tales can be started before the dealer has dealt the cards. First, pay attention to the age and style of clothing of their rivals. Often older opponents, dressed with restraint, will play tighter than young, stylishly dressed guys. Just as most women act at a poker table less risky than men.
Pay attention to how players handle chips. If the opponent puts them very carefully and smoothly, most likely he is a relatively conservative player. If the chips move erratically on the table, you should expect surprises and a not very accurate game from such an opponent.
And if a rival, using the pause, learns to do various tricks with chips, you can safely assume that he is a beginner in a live game. True, this does not mean that he does not have a pair of millions of played hands on the Internet.
Basic moments
When the game has begun, you first need to formulate for yourself the overall concept of the game of the opponent. Pay attention to his singings this is how you can roughly imagine how your opponent is bluffing and how many bets are sent to the bank with the nuts.
Try to remember how the enemy behaves in a neutral state. So in the future it will be easier for you to understand what his actions deviate from the basic model of behavior.
After all, one opponent can be nervous only during the bluffs, and the other in each hand, because playing for the last money.
Feel free to talk at the table but only when you are not in the game. Ask your opponents questions and remember their timbre and intonation in a relaxed state. In the future, you will be able to clarify something (for example, the size of your opponent’s stack) during a hand and understand your opponent’s level of tension by comparing his answer in a game with a neutral answer.
Behavior and posture
The idea to follow the mimicry, playing poker, comes to mind even for novice players. More precisely, people learn to control the face during a lie as a child. But to follow the pose and gestures is much more difficult.
