Can someone give me advice on how to read people in poker? I read a book that said sometimes you can tell if someone is weak by looking at his or her neck. If the vines are protruding that is the signal to go all in because he or she is weak 80% of the time.
Are there other body language that give off the strength of their hand? Please share.

I think this type of reading is overrated, even for live poker

despite that this video is 100 years old, most of it holds. And yeah like said above, poker isnt just reading people
But the highstakes players in Las Vegas use it. You mean to tell me they are wrong and you small cents players are right?

ive used a live tell once and it was correct. when people call a big bet in a multiway pot, then dont look that the board and keep talking as if nothing happened indicates super strength, doesnt apply to complete whales or fishtards but for people u play with constantly ive noticed its accurate

what drone666 said....
Spending your time analyzing many of these live tells will really be counterproductive to your growth and improvement as a poker player. Spend more time thinking about ranges a particular player has in a spot. Think about if they bet different sizings with different parts of their range in various spots. Think about ways to exploit their ranges in these spots. Things like this will contribute in a much more substantial way to your win rate and overall profitably in these live games than what trying to find physical tells will!

Is it possible that you're a "bad reg"?

"if people act weak they are strong, if they act strong they are weak"
Very often true for live fish and sometimes online regs with little live experience i found. But usually I have to play for a while with someone to find any live tell. And sometimes the live fish are so extremly into "live tells" that they think the entire game is about it. These type of fish can acctually be better at it than most grinders (!)

If you plan on ever playing live poker, be it cash or donkaments, you'd be stupid to ignore live tells.
Im only good at poker when I run good

try to construct accurate ranges for multiple spots vs villain in live tables first and foremost. That said no point of constructing a range if villain falls out of his chair when the flop is dealt too..
There's a wealth of information at live games it's incredible. Within the first hour or so of play if you have not picked up any significant tells or relevant information about at least 1-2 people's ranges then you are most certainly doing it wrong or the game is especially tough <--(very unlikely) Pay attention to people when you are not in hands. What they are looking at, demeanor, micro expressions etc can all be huge indicators about how comfortable villain is in that spot, his hand strength blah blah. Pay especially close attention to big turn/river spots and showdown hands. These types of spots is where you can get the most information about players. But...don't be one of those idiot try hards that just staring down everyone at every moment in the game please, it's stupid and bad for the game.
