Watch Your Opponents

Mike: Put a guy like me in a weak game like that, the cards themselves hardly matter. A fish acts strong, he's bluffing; acts meek, he has a hand.

- Rounders, 1998

Even if you fold a hand, your interest in that hand doesn't end. Follow how the remaining hands are played; you will acquire insight that will help you make better decisions in the subsequent times that you come up against that player.

Here's some better advice to go with that quote:

Watch your players. If they are an actor in one hand, acting strong even though they are weak, they will be an actor in most hands. Use that information to figure out who is sending out fake signals and who is sending out real ones. It can make or break a session.
