You can definitely do this, but I wouldn't call it a "strategy". Example: Years ago I was in Vegas at the Mirage. I hadn't been to Vegas in over 2 years, but one guy at the table I recognized from the last time I was there, so I assumed he was a pro. Soon after I sat down I had a decent hand (flopped top two).

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 ...

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. Being happy usually means your bluff worked. Being sad means he didn't extract all the value he wanted from the hand and others (obviously, it's a ...
