I interviewed Blake and wrote an article for PokerNews about BeyondTells. We discussed his background, his interest in poker behavior and behavior in general, and his process of analyzing the poker game footage they collected.
I get a lot of people asking for my opinion on the series but I haven’t watched it. I am actually curious about it. I haven’t watched it mainly because I don’t want to bias my own thoughts on behavior and poker tells.
I also have created my own video series, which was released earlier this year. I call it the Reading Poker Tells Video Series. I partnered with the Windy City Poker Championships to use their footage, which includes a bunch of tournament footage and cash games. (We also give 2% of sales to Chicago-area charities.) If you’re interested in learning more about my series, you can watch 1-minute samples of all of my poker tells training videos here. And you can read some customer reviews of the series here. Prices start at $36 for a 3-day rental of all the videos up to $100 for Lifetime Membership.
