A games night is all in good jest of course, but in the spirit of friendly competition, check out these six tips to suss out your opponent’s hand…

Are they leaning?
Leaning forward or reclining in a relaxed manner suggests they have a good hand.

Suddenly sitting up.
If a player suddenly sits upright in the chair and becomes attentive, they’ve probably got a strong hand.

The Long Stare.
If a player stares straight at you it’s likely they’re trying to show strength because they have a weak hand.

Lip play.
Biting, licking or sticking out lips are all signs of a weak hand.

Voice pitch.
Our voice tends to go up when we’re excited, so a higher pitch than normal is a sign of a strong hand. Clever players may try and overcompensate – so watch out for an unnaturally low voice too.
