This account has to be a joke. Body language is the same as a tell. Critizing other posters for having a lack of understanding for using the words interchangably is idiotic.I'm not wasting my time with this thread. Either this is a joke, or this guy is a retard.
Your a joke, read what he said:No decent 40 player is going to be confused by your silly attempts at throwing him off with mixed tells.
This is what pisses me the fuk off....i dont use "tells" to lure in my opponents, and i wasnt purposefully doing anything on this particular hand. In reality the only thing i was trying to do was bet. I just recognized that when i did this he percieved me as weak by the way i threw my chips in. How you have been playing up to this point = how he perceives you.
I dont remember who wrote ^that but this is my point of discrepancy: We are not talking about a pro here, many players do not have the discipline to study their opponents and create and image whatever it may be in their mind. This fact, is what makes the individual motions and attitude throughout this hand so critical. I am not a wild player and i probably hadnt done anything in the game to make the guy aware of any particular style in which i play. Especially because this was a mixed game, he doesnt know how i play limit hold'em, he had probably only seen me showdown 1 or 2 hold'em pots within the 5 hours i had been playing. If he doesnt have any specified read on me then the body language and betting attitude would his image of me. thanks

so you were sure he perceived you as weak on the flophow?
That is nature of body language and perception, i didnt KNOW. I thought strongly. And i went with that. The fact that he percieved me weak is actually of little importance to the actual hand. I called on the flop, he bet the turn and i raised him, then then called and check called on the river. What i was really looking for is whether or not you think he would have lead out on the turn if i 4 bet the flop. This is the only part where the way he percieved me would be of importance. Thanks
If you see a kid in a casino who doesnt look 21, dont hate on him and have him carded just because he is the one raking in all your chips.
