Using Poker Hand History To Your Advantage

How to read other poker players'
hand history - a winner's strategy!

New poker players in particular should take advantage of the facility on most quality poker sites to study the hand history of potential opponent players.

A poker player’s stats are available via buttons on the main table screen. These buttons generate a hand history showing what the various players did in previous hands or earlier in an ongoing game.

Intel of this kind is well worth taking onboard and gives you a strategic edge if you reach a critical situation facing someone who’s history you’ve just studied. The technology enables you to scroll back and double check a previous response from your opponent while you’re making tactical decisions against him.

Try doing that in a live casino.

I don’t think so!
