Wii Review – Medal of Honor: Heroes 2

Listen up ladies! Stop yer grinnin’ and drop your linen, it’s time for JB’s review of Medal of Honor: Heroes 2 for the Nintendo Wii. Developer EA brings us the 13th addition to the Medal of Honor franchise and there’ve been a lot of questions concerning whether or not it is worth the price of admission. Wii owners have a great deal to be skeptical about. With control scheme nightmares like Red Steel and Call of Duty 3 still fresh in our minds, the thought of picking up another first-person shooter on the Wii is a little worrisome.

Fortunately, there’s good news! With excellent controls, customizable layouts, and support for the Wii Zapper, Medal of Honor: Heroes 2 delivers a much smoother FPS experience than we’ve seen yet on the Wii. Gestures with the Wii-mote and Nunchuk such as reloading or leaning out from cover tend to feel natural. While the default controls for the game work great, they can be modified by the player to their liking. With the additional option to use the Wii Zapper, the controls can be modified to suit virtually any player’s preference.

So with all of these great new controls there has to be a great 먹튀 game here too, right? Well the answer is yes and no. If you are looking for a first-person shooter with an engaging storyline, memorable characters, and an overall satisfying single player experience you should look elsewhere. The single-player campaign mode hasn’t changed one bit since the first Medal of Honor game. Taking the role of yet another fictional hero of The Great War you will gun, bazooka, tank, and mortar your way through various war torn battlefields and Nazi installations. Do you know what you’ll be doing? If you answered, “shooting Nazis” you’d be absolutely right! And apart from completing objectives and making a few gestures with the Wii-remote and nunchuk, that’s all you’ll be doing.

The only thing that could make the single player campaign more boring would be to remove the player’s control of the character and essentially make an on-rail shooter. However, if that sounds exciting to you, MoHH2 has you covered with an Arcade Mode. This mode features even less to offer in terms of game play than the standard campaign mode. The computer will handle all of the movement while your job will be to control the targeting reticle and gun down hordes of dim-witted enemies. If your health runs low, med kits appear at points and can be shot for a life boost. It plays like the Time Crisis arcade games, or Resident Evil: Umbrella Chronicles… only poorly.

What Medal of Honor: Heroes 2 lacks in single-player game play, it more than makes up for with its 32-person online multiplayer. For the first time, Wii owners can get a taste of what Xbox owners have had for years… really big online frag-fests! There are 6 maps and 3 modes available for play over Wi-Fi, with very little lag. They are: deathmatch (DM), team deathmatch (TDM), and Capture the Flag (CTF). EA has also included rankings and leader boards, as well as the EA Messenger… it’s a buddy list.

You will start by creating an account name which requires a valid e-mail address. Once created, you have the option of creating a Persona. The Persona is the name you will display in-game. In order to add a friend to your buddy list, you need to know that person’s EA account name. You can also look in the “Recent Opponents” tab of the EA Messenger. This tab shows you the Persona name of people you’ve fought against in your most recent game. From there you can request to add that person and if they accept, their EA account name will be added to your friends list. Unfortunately, even with someone on your friends list, you can’t go directly to them if they are online and in a game. You’re not even shown which game they’re in! You must know the game already. Then again you could also find them the old fashioned way which is; scroll through the games one by one, check the list of players in that game, and hopefully find your friend.

At peak times, there are upwards of 2000 users, in over 70 games. At any time from the game lobby you can create or join a game already in progress. You also have a number of filters that you can use to sort through the game types you don’t wish to play. You are provided with a great deal of options but many other features are still missing that 360 and PS3 owners may take for granted. Things like voice chat, or the ability to communicate with your own messages instead of pre-made macros and messenger comments.

If there’s one thing to be learned from Medal of Honor: Heroes 2, it’s that a game doesn’t need to be perfect to be fun. Despite the lackluster single player and the multiplayer missing some basic features, the game still feels like a success. The excellent controls may have a great deal to do with that, but also it’s the fact that there’s finally a first-person shooter on the Wii that not only uses the Wi-Fi, but is also a lot of fun to play.

Game play 7/10: Excellent multiplayer modes, but lacking in other areas. The single player campaign feels like playing through a game we completed 5 years ago.

Control 10/10: Superb controls! EA truly has raised the bar on the standards of FPS controls on the Wii.

Graphics  amp; Sound 6 /10: Generic World War 2 sound effects and an uninspired soundtrack, combined with Wii graphics. Ouch…

Replay Value 8/10: Very few unlockables or extras to warrant playing the full single player campaign. Multiplayer, however, provides enough hours of entertainment to keep you coming back.

Overall 8/10 (Good): Wii owners can finally test their skills in 32 person multiplayer. That alone is reason enough to buy this game. If that’s not your thing however, then you may want to rent it first. Apart from the multiplayer, there’s nothing here that hasn’t been seen and done before.

All About The Use Of Wii Fit Plus

Wii Fit Plus is a fun way to sweat off a few pounds. I should know, as it has helped me shed about 40 pounds, so I can vouch for its effectiveness.

Graphics and Audio-20

The game is cute, that’s for sure! If you’re into the whole cutesy thing, Wii Fit is great. That being said, the graphics can get a little fuzzy sometimes. I have a fairly nice television (720p), and it can look like there are some stuck pixels at times, which doesn’t happen on my other games, or while I am watching TV. The audio is fairly good, you definitely don’t have to worry about it being loud enough! The only qualm that I have is that sometimes the audio is off from the actions on the screen, but this is rare, so never a big problem.

Gameplay-22

Wii Fit Plus’s gameplay is engaging and fun. In the game you get to choose between Yoga, Strength, Cardio, Balance, and new Wii Fit Plus exercises. Each of these categories has a variety of activities ranging from easy to hard, you unlock the harder exercises as you master the easy ones. There are a few irritating issues, however. One issue is that the new games added to Wii Fit Plus are under their own menu instead of sorted into the actual categories. This was probably done for aesthetic reasons so that the screens wouldn’t be crowded, but it is irritating that they are not properly sorted. Another issue is that although there is a routine option now, it’s not nearly what it could be. You have to combine what areas you want to work on, then leave it up to the game to choose the exercises, and it always chooses the least strenuous exercises. The routines also only last from 7-15 minutes. It would be very convenient if they could be 30 minutes so that it would easier to get the recommended exercise in per day.

Creativity-24

Wii Fit was the first of its kind, and Wii Fit Plus follows in this vein. As always, the activities are unique and engaging, and there is plenty of variety to choose from Slot Online Terpercaya according to your preference and budget. It helps the customer to know about the benefits of using such kind of equipment. The use of the Wii Remote, Nunchuck, and Balance Board allows for further innovation, and expands the gameplay. The combination of these three peripherals track your movements and can evaluate them, providing you with feedback, and although some other fitness games do this now, the Wii Fit line was the first.

Fun-25

This game is fun for all ages! Due to the variety of exercises it includes, even the pickiest of gamers can find something they like. The cute visuals combined with the creativity of the game combine to create an innovative product that will surely be appreciated by all.

The Three Card Poker Principle: Choosing the Right Starting Hand

The biggest mistake players new to poker make is putting too much faith in the cards. The standard poker deck consists of 52 cards. This high number of cards creates many possible of hands. New players are often overwhelmed and feel they have many more achievable hands than is actually realistic. The principle I am introducing to you today is the three- card principle. The idea of this principle is to control your bets on the five -card hands (the straights and flushes)(also known as “reach hands). By limiting the number of “reach hands” you stay in on, you will lengthen the time you stay at a table and increase your earnings per hand.

When you are playing a game of Five Card draw, there are at least fourty-seven possibilities of cards you could draw after your opening hand. If you are looking at a hand with only a King High, chances are there isn’t much you can make, even after the draw. This idea of having a weak hand also applies to a hand where you have two pieces of a five card straight. So remember when you were playing online poker at Bandar judi bola, it is really important to have a strong hand in playing.

The best way to ensure you continue on to see the better hands later in the game is recognizing when your hand just can’t see through to the end of the pot. By realizing your hand has very little possibility of carrying you through and folding, you save yourself valuable chips that will let you see better draws as the table goes on. The 3-card principle is a simple way to evaluate your beginning hand. If you have at least 3-cards of a 5-card winning hand (either a straight of a flush) you can consider your hand a strong hand that you should pursue continue to pursue. The common trait all professional poker players have in common is the ability to recognize they are not going to win a hand and make the decision to fold.

For example, consider an opening hand of Ace-Heart, 4-Diamond, 7-Heart, King- Club, and 9- Club. When a new poker player sees this hand, they aim high and want to return the 4,7,9 in hopes of completing the Ace-High straight. In reality, the chances of completing a straight with only two pieces are low. On any given table with 8 player seated, there is over a 30% chance that one player will have a pocket pair. That pocket pair will be your “hopeful straight” nineteen times out of twenty. By saving your stack until you see a “3 out of 5 piece hand” you stand to go home with some big money. A new player to poker is likely to convince himself or herself to see the draw and bet liberally while a poker pro recognizes the risk and will either bet conservatively or fold before the draw.

When evaluating your opening hand in a game of Five Card draw, always remember the three- card principle. Without at least three pieces of your target hand, you should always either bet conservatively or fold. Avoid getting drawn into a heads up situation with a player who can simply beat you with a high card or a pair they pulled in their opening hand.

A Beginners Guide to the Top Ten Starting Hands in Texas Hold’em Poker

Now that you have started to play poker, be it for fun, or competitively, you’re most likely looking for a real easy way to improve your poker skills. Because after all poker IS a game of skill. One of the most important poker skills you can have is a good grasp on odds and probability. Even though most poker players will tell you that poker is a skill game, there is still an element of chance involved. One of the best ways to manipulate the chance in your favor is to understand odds at the poker table.\An easy mistake lots of new poker players make, is their apparent inability to lay down a hand that even they know is beat. This comes from most new poker player’s inability to pick and choose their starting hands wisely. You need to understand that poker is NOT a two card game. Take Texas Hold’em for example. It’s a very popular poker variant that is responsible for 90% of the new poker players out there. In this form of poker you are dealt two cards face down. These are your hole cards, or “pockets”. Some pocket cards or combinations of pocket cards have a greater starting value than others. For Texas Hold’em poker details you can have a look at https://koinqq.com/.

Understanding starting value in your hole cards is very important. Even though your pocket seven’s you were just dealt look very attractive, they really are just a middle pair. A middle pair is going to be “out drawn” by two higher cards a good deal of the time. For example, if you have your starting hand of sevens, and I have a starting hand of Ace-Jack, I can draw any one of the other three Jacks or Aces to beat you. That’s six cards I can catch to win, or six “outs”. You only have two sevens left in the deck to catch. A pair of sevens could make a straight, provided you get a running combination of four cards. My Ace-Jack only needs a running combination of three cards to make a straight.

Obviously there are more factors involved than what I have explained thus far, but if you begin to explore the possibilities of other starting hands as we have begun to here, you will begin to see, that there are starting hands that are statistically far and away better than others. Let’s go over the top ten starting hands in Texas Hold’em. They will be ranked from one, being the best, to ten, being the tenth best.

#1. Ace-Ace. Sometimes called “bullets”, or “weapons of mass destruction”. Mathematically the best starting hand in Hold’em poker. Aces will get cracked by two random cards only 15% of the time.

#2. King-King. Also called “cowboys”, kings will only loose to a pair of aces more often than not.

#3. Queen-Queen. Referred to as “ladies”, queens are a strong high pair and a good solid starting hand, but can be out drawn by two cards.

#4. Jack-Jack. Sometimes called “fishhooks”, it can be tough to play. Jacks will be out drawn by a lot of attractive starting hands. It’s pretty solid anyway.

#5. Ace-King suited. Also called “big slick”, it’s got two top cards to draw on, and catches a “nut flush” with any three cards of the same suit. If it doesn’t catch it’s just a high card.

#6. Ten-Ten. Referred to as “dimes”, tens look great starting out early in a hand, but loose value fast as the higher cards hit the board.

#7. Ace-King off suit. They call this one “big slick” also, and it has the same chance of making a nice high pair, but substantially lower chance of making a flush than its suited counterpart.

#8. Ace-Queen suited. Sometimes called “big chick”, it’s an attractive drawing hand, and has a lot off power in terms of making small pairs lay down.

#9. King-Queen suited. Known as the “royal couple”, two top pair makers to draw on make this hand easy to play, and it makes for a nice “second nut flush” with the addition of three cards of the same suit.

#10. Ace-Jack suited. This should bring back fond memories for you blackjack players, and is known to poker players as “ajax”. Nice to look down and see this in the pocket, even nicer if that lonely Jack hits on the flop.

There you have it, the top ten starting hands in Texas Hold’em poker. I have found that a great way to practice figuring out how your starting hands stack up is to try and work out the next ten or twenty hands on our list. Try to figure #11 through #30, I am sure you’ll be surprised to see what is and isn’t there when the dust settles.

When you play don’t solely rely on math and probability to guide your decisions, use your instincts, and trust you gut. If you loose, learn from it, and try hard to not make the same mistakes over and over. That’s the only way to really improve. After all, poker is a game of skill.

Until next time remember: A good poker player can dodge bad luck, a great poker player doesn’t have to.

Poker Etiquette Number 1

Poker is a great game, but it can become very stressful. When doing anything stressful, especially when money is involved, people tend to become angry and tempers may flare. It is very easy to see why so many people were killed during poker games in the past. Anyone who has played a great deal of poker has seen someone throw a fit after losing. People becoming angry when they lose money will happen but there are ways to avoid causing unnecessary tension. There are many impolite actions that can be taken offensive at the poker tables. Some of which you may not have thought were rude, such as “going south” during a cash game. If you do not know the meaning of “going south” then read on and you may learn bad habits of your own. These can be very useful to know when you are playing a game of Domino100.

The first of which I am going to bring up is “going south.” This refers to taking chips off the table and not betting them anymore. This is only applicable during cash games. Many players will do this after winning a large hand. A player will simply take some of the money he won and pull it off the table. This is a very quick way to upset others at the poker table. This will particularly upset people who you won from in the hand since they no longer have the opportunity to win their money back. The best policy is simply to leave all your money on the table until you are ready to leave the table.

The second bad behavior is splashing the pot. A player throws there chips into the center of the pot making it difficult for the dealer to count it. This slows down the game and is considered very rude towards the dealer. This is a move you see in commercials and movies but should not otherwise be done. When betting simply place your chips neatly out in front of you. Be sure they are close enough for the dealer to reach but not in the pot.

Do not under any circumstances purposely miscall your hand. This is done often by someone trying to appear funny at the table but it can be very irritating. Also if the dealer or other player is not paying attention to your cards it could cause some confusion. This will slow down the game and upset the other players at the table.

String betting is by many casinos considered against the rules. A string bet is when you push in one stack of chips in to the pot and then push in a second stack. You must push in all the chips you are betting at once or declare the amount that you are going to raise. The reason string betting is not allowed is it can cause confusion, which slows down the game. The other problem with string bets are that you can make the bet and if it does not appear that your opponent is folding you can grab for more chips.

The very last and possibly most important etiquette rule when playing poker is never “slow roll.” This is when you allow your opponent to turn their cards first or slowly flip your cards over. Only in the movie Maverick is this ever done (and almost gets shot for it). By slow rolling your opponent you are letting the suspense build which creates more tension. This can also cause an opponent to think he has one the hand only for you to turn your cards over and take their glory.

Always remember how strenuous poker can be on the mind. The game is supposed to be fun, and when people are upset it begins to ruin the game for the whole table. So follow these five poker etiquette rules so as to keep everyone happy. If you are interested in seeing more articles of this nature such as poker etiquette and manners let me know.

How To Play The Quarter Betting Game

There’s an easy betting game to play for football games. Anybody that wants to get in on the betting can and they don’t have to know anything about football. Usually, no more than a quarter is placed for a bet and coins are what is usually used, but you can change the rules. You should also check out Agen Bola Terpercaya for more such tips and trick that you ca use. With these tips you can significantly improve your betting game.

What is needed:

1 to 4 pieces of paper

A pen or a pencil

People to bet, each needing at least four quarters (or whatever coins are used or they are going to bet)

Preparations:

Very few preparations are needed

Eight rows of 10 or 11 boxes are drawn on the paper or papers. It depends on how you want to set up the sheet. If you are using four papers horizontally, you may want to draw two rows of 10 boxes. If you are using just one piece of paper, you may need to make the boxes closer. However, each box should be able to hold at least one quarter.

In each row of 10 boxes, write the numbers 0 through 9, one number per box.

Write one of the team names above each of the rows or in the 11th box for each row, so there would be four rows that contain “team 1” and four rows that contain “team 2”

Playing the betting game:

The game takes place during each quarter. It ends at the end of each quarter. A peson places a bet by placing a quarter on the number of the score that they think a team’s score will have at the end of the number. This way, there is no guessing who will win. It is simply a betting game based on numbers.

When the quarter is finished, the person who placed their bet on the correct number for the team’s score gets all the quarters in the row. If only one bet was correct for one team and the other team had no correct bets, the person who bet for the first team gets the quarters from both rows.

However, if there are no correct bets, two things can happen depending on how you play the game.

Option 1:

The quarters stay and then after the next quarter of the football game, anybody that gets the correct ending number gets to take the quarters for their team from that quarter and the previous quarter (once again, all of the quarters if only one bet was correct for one team).

Option 2:

Everybody gets their quarters back and the game starts new with the second quarter of the football game.

Do the same things for the third and fourth quarters of the game. The important part of the game is that you keep it consistant however you play it.

This game can even be played by people who are not interested in the game since all you need is one person watching the game to let others know the final score during each quarter of the game.

How to Throw a Casino Night Dinner Party

Dinner parties can be boring, and sometimes it is hard to get people to actually come, but if you have an awesome theme for your party you will have more responses than ever before. This article will show you how to throw a casino night dinner party that I promise will be a hit. You can visit sbowin to get all the thin that you might need for the casino night. You can learn about different card games that you can play. You can easily learn those games as well, as you have the option to play them online.

In order to decorate for your casino night you will need bright lights, green table cloths, fake dice, fake money, and playing cards. Decorate your house with many Christmas lights, and hang large dice from the ceiling. You can create your own decorations by attaching playing cards to streamers and hanging them from the ceiling and around the house. You can also cut out hearts, clubs, diamonds, and spades from pieces of red or black colored paper and hang them around your house as well for decoration. Money symbols and fake money can also be hung around the house for fun. Remember to have fun no matter how you decorate.

Food is another important part of your casino dinner party, and you want to supply food that can be eaten easily and on the go as people move around the house to play different games. Finger food work best for this type of party. Vegetable platters with spinach dip are a great choice, and I live fruit platters with yogurt as well. Mini egg rolls and chicken fingers are also another good snack. Mini sandwiches are a definite choice for these parties, and I also like to make crackers with cheddar cheese and raisins for my casino parties. Remember to keep the food easily transportable and light, and have it set out in a buffet style so that the guests can bring their food with them to the games.

In order to get the games rolling at your casino party remember to have a few different tables set up. Some table you will need is a poker table, a blackjack table, and a roulette wheel. All of these tables will have green tablecloths and you will need someone to deal out the games or act as the leader. The guests can nominate themselves or you can choose to do it. Just remember to give all the guests fake money at the start of the night. I like to hand them a gift bag as they enter, and this bag will include a set amount of fake money, funny sunglasses and visors. These items set the mood for the party, and it allows the guests to start having fun.

Remember to have some fun prizes that your guests can trade in their play money for at the end of the night, and this party will be a blast!

Smart Basic Strategy of Hold’em Poker vs Omaha Poker

Texas Hold’em is generally played with nine or ten people at a table. This is the same for Omaha, a variation of Texas Hold’em but with four hold cards distributed at the beginning of the game per player as opposed to two cards. There is the major difference. Even though you must use two and only two of the four hold cards in Omaha, this slight difference makes a big difference as far as developing a winning strategy.

So, you can’t expect to do well on Omaha game Judi online just because you’re great in Hold’em. But you can modify some Hold’em strategies to gain advantage.

Mathematics Of Texas Hold’em Poker

If there are nine players at a table then 18 cards are distributed on the first round. This is about 1/3 of the deck. When the flop happens each player can see his two pocket cards and the three cards of the flop. Even after the river card is turned more than half the cards remain in the deck. This is true with 10 players as well.

If you have an ace and another ace flops the odds of someone holding the third and/or fourth ace is less than 50/50. In a truly random in a well shuffled deck. You can feel pretty secure that your aces will be good as long as your kicker is good. Of course if there are three spades on board you can be pretty sure someone has at least two spades which will trump your aces or even aces up. If there is a rainbow flop and no three straight flopped, and no pairs flopped you can be pretty sure your aces will hold unless someone has flopped a set (three of a kind) or two pairs. An un-raised value bet will tell you if someone has the trips or two pair and you better leave at that point.

Mathematics Of Omaha Hold’em Poker

Dramatically different than Texas Hold’em, Omaha has 37 card distributed in a nine player field and 40 cards given out in a ten player game. With the five board cards dealt virtually the whole deck is in play (45 out of 52 cards). So the question of are there one or two aces left in the deck becomes mute. They have probably been distributed. The question then becomes who has them and what are they using them for. Aces as a pair generally are not a winning hand in Omaha Poker. However, they are great if no pair has been dealt on board and you have the ace suited in your hand. With a flush or a four card, flush draw on the flop. Going in with two suited cards without an ace of that suit may lead you to a flush which is beaten by the nut flush with someone holding the ace and another card of that suit in their hand. Therefore always remember that when you play Omaha, don’t count on a card still being left in the deck. It is most likely out there in someone’s hold cards.

The Best Omaha Hand in a Omaha High Only Game

In my opinion AAKQ is the best pocket cards if the king is suited with one ace and the queen is suited with the other ace. This gives you two nut flush draws, a nut straight draw and a pair of aces which may become as set on the flop. Remember, in most Omaha games you must use two cards from your hand to make your final hand. If you have the ace of spades but no other spades in your hold cards, you cannot make a flush even if 4 or 5 spades fall on the board. That is because you must use two cards from your 4 hold card to make a hand. If you have one spade in your hold cards you cannot make a spade flush no matter how many spades fall on the board.

Best Omaha Hand in a Hi-Lo Game

In my opinion the best Omaha hand in an Omaha Hi-Lo game is AA23 where the deuce is suited with one ace and the 3 is suited with the second ace. You may win both high and low hands if a tree cards to a wheel (a straight of 1, 2, 3, 4,  amp; 5) or a nut flush with a good secondary low.

Good luck and have fun. Omaha is so interesting and complex that one day it may overtake Texas Hold’em as the game played in the main event of the World Seri

Texas Hold’em Basic Pre-Play Tells for Poker

About a month ago, my father asked me, “When you play poker, what type of tells do you pick up on?”

A question that comes to mind is,”What are tells?” Tells are in fact mannerisms, actions, or procedures that are taken subconsciously that give a clue as to what a person is thinking about. There are all types of tells in Texas Hold’em. Many people might remember the ’90s movie, “Rounders.” In this movie the lead character, played by Matt Damon outwits one of the best players of New York, KGB, played by John Malkovich, to rid himself of outstanding debt that he and his long-time friend acquired. Matt does this by seeing KGB commit a “tell.” Every time KGB had a dominant hand, he would take apart an Oreo cookie and eat on half. Many people believe that tells are only seen during play. When someone is involved in a hand they do show tells that one can easily perceive as a strong-handed tell or a weak-handed tell. There are still others you can see when you walk to a table to begin playing. You can learn more about Texas Hold’em Basic Pre-Play Tells for Poker at situs poker online 24jam. It is real easy and you can get familiar with the game of poker in no time.

When my father asked me that question I paused and said, “Well, to be honest, I can tell who I can bluff and who I don’t want to be in a hand with without even sitting down.” He did not believe me so I told him the lessons I have learned over the past five years playing private tournaments and cash game. There are two main points of interest you should notice as you sit down.

1) Look at the way the person is dress or rather, they’re overall appearance.

Say you sit down at a table with a gentlemen wearing slacks, a button down shirt, possibly a tie, and a haircut that is properly groomed with hair supplies and brushed to where not one hair is out of place. Watch this person closely. Most of the time when they have an average chip-stack, in comparison with other players chips at the table, they will play only high end hands. They tend to play more conservatively but when they have a good hand, are not afraid to put chips into the pot. This person is one you want to play when you have position on them. You want to see how they bet at a pot and exploit their hand for all it’s worth. Try to get them out of the pot as fast as you can, hopefully pre-flop.

On another note, let’s pretend you see someone that is wearing a brightly colored shirt or maybe one that has a artistic design. They’ll probably have longer hair, probably not as groomed, and possibly even tattoos to match. This person is a loose cannon. They are hard to push around because they like to see flops and outdraw their opponents. The safest way to play this type is to let them do the betting. I actually tend to like to play people like this out of position in most hands. Check to them, see how they play, and if you believe you hand is of higher value, check-raise them or if you have the “nuts”, check -call until they have better pot odds to call.

2)When the appearance is taken into consideration, notice how the players stack their chips.

This tip is more reliable than the appearance tip but should be used in conjunction. The conservative player will stack the chips almost perfectly, straight up and down with no chip out of place. The aggressive “loose-cannon” player will hastily stack their chips often hardly vertical and many times with chips out of place.

I use these tips at tournaments with unfamiliar players. I play many tournaments at different locations and the majority of the time have never met my opponents but win almost 90% of the time. Look for my next article on Pre-Flop Play.
