Zachary Elwood is the author of the books Reading Poker Tells (2012) and Verbal Poker Tells (2014). Reading Poker Tells has been called the “best book on poker tells” by many players, both amateur and professional. (Read more reviews for that book.)
In this short ebook focused on $1-2 live games, Elwood explores what some common low-stakes behaviors are likely to mean and explains the “why” behind them. He then delves into ways to make practical, strategic use of that behavioral information.
