Advanced Poker Tactics: Exploitation and Bribery
There are certain benefits to play against opponents who are so involved in the game. If you're good and wise, you can exploit this condition and use it against them. Being so involved in the game, makes you readable. And when you're readable, you're in a certain kind of trouble like you become vulnerable to be read your personal weaknesses. Second, you become readable pros can get info on how you play your cards. Third, the way you bet and raise becomes obvious on certain hands. Other times, when you or your opponents become so involved in the game, a pro knows he can manipulate you by hypnosis, distractions and agreements.
So here's how it goes:
Poor poker players become so hooked in the game by certain personal weaknesses. And they are the once who usually get bankrupt in the game. A pro can exploit those weaknesses to his advantages among them are: carelessness, compulsiveness, exhibitionism, faith, fear, greed, impulsiveness, inattentiveness, laziness, nervousness, stubbornness, superstitious beliefs, timidity, worry, and a whole array more. Each of these personal weaknesses can translate to the player resisting objective thinking and rationality that he fails before he begins the game.
You may not know it but if you're regularly playing against a pro, you'll definitely find a record of yourself in his notes. There you'll find a weakness he has noticed about you, a weakness you knew or haven't known about yourself. By knowing your opponent's weaknesses, he uses this information when strategizing either to read your hands, manipulate you and your opponents to pace up the game or slow it down, get you to stake higher, etc. But these notes always changes since you and your buddies also improve as you play. The revision of these notes lets the pro refresh his memory, devise better ways to manipulate you, provides a better understanding of your personality profile, and it detects any change or improvement in your part.
What is mostly exploited is the player's laziness while playing. In a short sentence, what is laziness in a poker game? Well, its your desire to gain value without effort. This only leads to one path, I'm assured: unearned money, respect and approval. A pro usually uses those desires for unearned value to manipulate you in the form of favors such as giving free advice, loans, compliments, flashing of cards and sympathy. In a way, these are what pros call the poker bribery. And they use this for their own personal gain, not yours. Another form of bribery is when the pros control of the house rules and you agree with him. There's a pretty good chance that that house rule favors the pro in some deceptive way and you don't know about it.
