Poker is perhaps the only game throughout history that lying and cheating are animated, except of course cheating. It’s fun to think that when you lie and cheat on poker using your skills, you are still considered an honest person. Win the game by cheating and bluffing, you make a role model. You would not see that anywhere.
The first lesson you need to practice deception is to keep your cravings hidden. Desires come in many forms. They are generally arguing weaker players. Try not to discuss anything on and off the poker table. Do not discuss any weaknesses because your opponents can turn this information against you. Your discussion of what you think is a weakness is a dead giveaway of your limitation.
Sometimes you want a faster betting step. Sometimes you ask players to bet faster by telling them. Avoid doing so. You can increase betting step without saying it. What pros do when they want a faster betting step are to complain about playing fast. By reverse psychology, players do what their opponents do not want to do.
When you want higher stakes, never suggest it unless it’s true. Absolutely subtle, you can increase your stakes as a means of giving losers a break. But of course, that is only your hook, line and lead. If you want more games, never express excitement to play but organize them.
Another way to practice deception is to cover up facts. The facts arouse the suspicions that are unfavorable to you. For example, when your opponents are playing poorly, never mention what they do after each game. In fact, praise them for their skills even. Bluffing does not stop even after the game anyway. When you are winning, do not remind your opponents about your win. What you must do is to appear as negative and skeptical as you may be to a believable degree. Appear worried.
It is obvious that if you only go with hands like AA, KK, QQ or AK … rarely you will come into play. That is why even if you only intend to play these hands effectively, you should get into more hands expecting a big flop . If you only play strong hands, you try to enter also with combinations of Aces with cards of the same suit (A3, A7 …). Thus, in addition to having the probability of achieving a maximum color, you will build a player image that goes to many hands.
Another concealment of facts is to fold cards without excuses or other comments. Appear lose when you are tight, appear tight when you are lose. When you have employed a good strategy and succeed you do not always discuss it. When asked what you’ve done that shot that trick, provide him with wrong reasons. Do not boast in this situation.
Last but not the least way to practice deception is your method of lying. This trick can give you dozens of strategies at your disposal. Aspects always cheat on a poker game, use that. Never show what goes inside you, always something else from the show. But show a lie that is so natural, opponents read it as truth.
