It depends whether the hand was in progress or not. I think you are free to tell tells if you like, you will lose out though and will annoy people hoping to exploit this tell. If this happened in the middle of a hand, however, it's different. In general it is considered bad etiquette and may even be against the rules to talk about the hand in progress. The ...

Move allin preflop with nut carts lol. They won't know until it hits them. If you're not afraid to gamble try shove every AQs+. Choose your bet sizing randomly.(PF 5 BB next hand 2 BB)(people will think you can not play) Reraise someone and than show him the bluff(people will think you are drunk and will play like a maniac all the time). Say raise but ...

This depends A LOT on: the player's body language baseline in the past, what kind of hands he showed at showdown after doing this whether or not he was happy if other players folded to him in the same situation.

At the lower limits that I play, you frequently see players raise preflop, continuation bet the flop, then check the turn if called and they don't have a strong hand. If you are actually holding a monster and think a TAG is floating you, then go ahead and copy this pattern. You'll often get an extra ...

It's certainly possible to fake tells. However whatever you will show will be a tell, and good players will take note of it. Experienced players at high stakes may fake tells too sometimes. Now, I think faking tells is possible maybe at the beginning of the game when you are fresh and stakes are still low. As you go further in a tournament, or after 5 hours ...

It of course could be both. If you just sat down in the game and you don't know the player you are kind of in the dark with this one and need to have a very narrow range of hands that you are going to call with. Like playing online, you calculate your risk. However after you have played with the player for awhile you will be able to be more accurate with ...
