What Is A Poker Face All About? India

What Is A Poker Face All About?

by Manthra Koliyer Posted on 01 Apr, 2021

Poker is one card game that is loved and played by people across the globe. The game has several references to people, places among other things. Poker terms, expressions, and hand rankings are closely associated with popular culture. One such expression is ‘poker face’ which is often mentioned in conversations. 

What is a poker face?

A poker face is essentially a blank expression when a person’s face shows no emotions. In any game, a person who has a blank face is considered to have a ‘poker face.’ This blank face has zero emotions and forms an important part of the game when it comes to reading opponents.

Is There A Song Called Poker Face?

Oh yes! American star singer Lady Gaga’s pop song ‘Poker Face’ was a hit among music lovers and the singer’s fans across the globe. 

 An important part of poker is to read your opponent’s mind, expression and body language. For example, if your opponent always touches his forehead when big cards are dealt, you can understand the pattern. A pro player would give you no information at all when they are involved in a hand as they master the expression of ‘poker face.’ On the contrary, amateur players would tend to give away by making facial expressions unknowingly. This observation will help you understand the strength or weakness of your opponent.

How can you avoid a poker face?

  • Don’t change your facial expressions come what may
  • The key to bluffing your opponent is to convince everyone that you aren’t bluffing
  • Do not keep looking at your cards repeatedly during the ‘river’ as that is a clear sign that you are checking if you have a good hand or not.
