Summary

Verbal Poker Tells is the follow-up to Zachary Elwood's acclaimed book Reading Poker Tells.

When poker players talk, they sometimes reveal information about their hands. Verbal Poker Tells describes the most common and reliable verbal patterns poker players have. More importantly, it gives you a framework for thinking about and analyzing verbal behavior at the poker table. The author analyzes many real poker hands: some from televised poker shows such as The World Series of Poker, Poker After Dark, and High Stakes Poker, some played by the author, and some submitted by other players.

Valuable Information!

Where does Verbal Poker Tells rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Among the highest.

What other book might you compare Verbal Poker Tells to and why?

There are no other books or audio books that I know of that explore verbal poker tells with this much depth or even at all. For audiobooks on poker perhaps Phil Gordon's Little Green Book or Jarred Tendler's Mental Game of Poker because these are books with good but different information that are appealing to be listened to over and over again.

Which scene was your favorite?

It is not a novel. All of the information is palatable and useable immediately.

What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

The idea that when someone is bluffing they are less like to "limit their range" verbally. Brilliant concept explained by the author of the book,

Any additional comments?

I am so appreciative of the knowledge and wisdom of this book. I do not know how I ever played without listening to it before. I now have an idea of what players most likely mean by what they say and also know what not to do in my own playing behavior.

Great read!

Listened to it on 5 hour drive to poker room, listened to it while playing 2-5. I noticed many of the tells were spot on! Not something you can use every hand but will likely save you a bet a couple times a day.

Excellent alternative information

A different view on poker tells, not your typical poker book but really interesting and useful information that you probably didn't realize you were doing or was to look out for. It droned on for a bit and narrator could put you to sleep if you listened to it while driving but overall I was impressed on the data the author obtained and provided in this audio book.

Highly recommend if you're looking for something a little different and for some nuance in the game you probably didn't pay attention too.

Not Unabridged.

This one is just as good as the others, however it is not the unabridged version. The title says unabridged, but one of the first things he says is that it's the abridged version.

Great for Business too

People lie. Good to know what you know confirmed. Somebody asking about your watch, doesn't care about your watch.
