We all lie. From the classic “my car broke down” and “I don’t have a signal” to “I’ve read and accepted the terms and conditions,” lying is an often overlooked part of everyday life. In poker, lying has the greatest value and can save the day for many players. Bluffing is an art, but like any art, it’s imperfect.
When it comes to bluffing or trying to hide valuable bets, there are plenty of people who choose to decode their way and let them pass or try to guess them without a break. So what are the most common sayings and reactions from players? How do you tell your opponent to hide a valuable card or hide a bluff?
Of course, this doesn’t characterize hard science; it’s just a hypothesis. But reactions like this show the point in so many cases: since this is a game with a human touch, it all depends on the player, the situation, and the context itself. Can you think of another type of infamous story to add to the list?
Some stories, if any, may be too specific.
