This course will provide you with a systematic, thoroughly reliable approach that takes the guesswork out of tells. More than 3 hours of detailed instruction.

Video Footage of Real Players
We’ve taken footage from poker TV shows, including many WPT final tables, to create a comprehensive catalogue of revealing behaviors exhibited at the poker table. For the first time ever, you’ll have the chance to study tells directly by observing actual cash games and tournaments, allowing you to learn firsthand how to recognize meaningful behaviors among real-life players. Rather than relying on a description, a photograph, or staged videos, you can use this course to study professional and amateur players who exhibit exactly those behaviors that you’re seeking to identify at the tables.
Separating Myth from Fact
There are so many myths surrounding tells that you likely already believe some incorrect information without even realizing it. Tells are one of the most misunderstood aspects of poker—even some top professionals make serious mistakes when they talk about this topic! This scientific and rigorous course will show you how to separate fact from fiction so that you avoid the risk of letting incorrect information about tells put you at a disadvantage.
A Reliable, Scientific Approach
Many players—including some top pros—advocate relying on your gut instincts and allowing one-time reads to affect your poker decisions. That is just about the most dangerous thing you could do, because you can never really be sure when you can rely on a tell, and when you can’t. In this course, you’ll learn a scientific approach to tells that will allow you to rely on the tells you identify and to trust the decisions you make as a result.
In this course, we’ll walk you through the steps of ICC, a unique new system of tells unlike any that has ever appeared before. ICC is a rigorous, scientific approach that enables anyone to observe opponents’ behaviors at the poker table and decide whether they are “tells”. ICC allows you to identify tells that are specific to each of your opponents—reliable indicators of whether that person is strong, weak, or on a draw. Once you have mastered ICC, you will be equipped to detect tells in any opponent who gives them off, and you will know that these tells are dependable enough for you to base your poker decisions on them.
Dangers of a Non-Scientific Approach
Used correctly, tells can give you a significant edge. Used incorrectly, tells can be so dangerous to your game that you’re better off not using them at all. We’ll walk you through the dangers of using tells in a haphazard and unsystematic way, including overconfidence, wishful thinking and the magnification of tilt. These pitfalls are a normal part of human nature, but you can overcome them through the kind of systematic thought and observation that you learn in this course.
Once you have mastered using ICC to detect tells of hand strength, you’ll learn advanced techniques that will enable you to predict players’ future actions. You will learn to pick up tells that can reveal when your opponents plan to fold or bet, knowledge that can give you a significant edge in your own poker decisions.
Learning to conceal your own potential tells is critical to winning the war of information at the poker table. Even an occasional lapse becomes a leak that can easily turn you from a winning poker player into a break-even or even a losing player. In this course, you’ll learn how to systematically identify your own leaks and you’ll discover exactly how to become unreadable at the table. You’ll learn the two primary approaches that professionals take to conceal information at the table, along with detailed recommendations about when to employ each one.
Once you’ve learned how to read other people’s tells and how to conceal your own, you’re ready to learn how to induce a tell from an opponent—an ability that can give you a huge edge on your competition. Inducing tells can be tricky, however, because any time you try to exploit your opponents, you make it easier for them to potentially exploit you. We’ll teach you how to gain information without giving any away through a rigorous, reliable system that has never been taught before. Mastering this skill will enable you to make more profitable decisions at the poker table.
