Davidi Kitai Discusses Understanding Live Tells in Poker
The EPT11 Deauville €10,300 High Roller event is currently down to the final two tables, with Belgium’s Davidi Kitai one of the remaining players still vying for the title.
After finishing 2014 as the third-ranked player in the Global Poker Index Player of the Year race, Kitai has already gotten off to a fast start here in 2015. Last month he cashed twice at the 2015 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure, including final-tabling the $5,200 eight-handed no-limit hold’em turbo event (finishing eighth). And in Deauville he’s already won one side event and finished ninth in another, pushing his overall lifetime tournament earnings to nearly $6 million.
During a break in the High Roller, our Remko Rinkema caught up with Kitai specifically to discuss the subject of tells — including both how to read others’ tells at the table and how to work on minimizing your own.
Take a look at what Kitai had to say about hand shaking, players’ actions while making bets, timing tells, discovering patterns, and more:
