Jonathon Little had this to say about hand-reading skills in the February 2012 issue of Ante Up magazine:
"Hand-reading is a skill every poker player must develop. If you find yourself constantly confused about your opponent's holding, you're not thinking during every hand or you're not paying attention.
Pay attention to every hand at the poker table . . . I often see players playing on their phones or watching TV when they aren't involved in a hand. This is a huge mistake.
If you have more information about your opponents than they have about you, you will find the money coming your way in the long run."
