Synopsis: This video examines talking early-in-a-hand from what I call “non-aggressors” (i.e., players who are calling and not raising). In general, talking accompanying calls will tend to indicate a lack of focus, and mean that the player does not have a strong hand. Not terribly useful, as most players just calling pre-flop are not going to be strong anyway, but in some cases this can be valuable for making you more confident that a player is not slowplaying a strong hand.
