Genting Poker London ? How to Spot Live Tells
Being able to identify live poker tells is one of the special skills of the game. If you can read your opponent’s physical body language, then you potentially have a massive edge over them. But where do you start? If you’ve only ever taken part in a live game against members of your own family or your friends, taking on strangers can seem daunting. After all, if you don’t know someone, how can you know what they’re thinking? But in poker, as in life, there is always a way.
The London Look
Playing poker in the capital of the busiest poker country worldwide can be a challenge. With so much on offer, it’s easy to forget how individual each game of poker is to players from Acton to Leytonstone. From cash regulars to tournament types, there are people from all walks of life who turn up at both the Genting Cromwell Mint Casino on Cromwell Road in South Kensington and The Palm Beach Casino in Mayfair’s Berkeley Street. But who are they and how can you tell from how they look?
Playing at the Beach
Everyone loves summer, whether it’s an ice-cream and a trip to the seaside or a balmy evening when it feels like the sun will never quite drop below the horizon. But the middle of the year is also one of the busiest times of the year for cash games, and never more so than at The Palm Beach casino in London’s Mayfair district.
