:: Body Language ::

Paying attention to an opponents body language is crucial to live poker.

In addition to the many signs of adrenaline there are other things to watch for as well.

A big one is how the person is holding themselves in their chair. If they're leaning back and relaxed that can mean they have a hand. If they're pressed forward trying to stare you down it may mean they're on a bluff.

Watching a person closely when you're not in a hand is a great way to try to find some sort of tell on them. I once played against a guy who would lean forward and play with his mouth hanging open when he had a great hand. Tells can range from not so subtle things like that to subtle things like finger tapping, leg movements ... pretty much anything anything you can associate with a particular strength of hand can be useful.
