Poker Face

Poker Face

How to win poker at the table and online


Understanding body language is vital for success in any walk of life, but in the game of poker it can mean the difference between winning or losing. Unlike other card games that rely primarily on luck for a win, poker is predominantly a game of skill, and a major part of that skill is the ability to read your opponent's body language while keeping in control of your own signals.

The art of reading body language is complex and fascinating and Poker Face takes the reader through each stage in a comprehensive and entertaining way. Written for both the experienced player and the beginner, this book explains each stage of lying and bluffing, from the casual beginner's lies to the behaviour of the lie expert.

Fast-paced, lively and funny, this book is a must for any serious player.
