As you play and will gather experience you might start feeling things when you play and it will affect your decisions. (At least that's what happens with me) Sometimes when you have a really good hand(2 pairs or better) and your oponent starts to be aggressive when he normally never is.

Say you have the nuts if you are putting your opponent on a strong hand ...
