A mannerism, usually unconscious, exhibited by the dealer that suggests the value of his hole card. Since the dealer must check the hole card when an ace or a ten is showing, reading a dealer's tell can enable a player to know when the dealer has a pat hand (or, since that is assumed, to tell when he does not).
A special channel that can only be heard between two players, like a private message. You can reply to a tell simply by using the 'reply' command (e.g., 'reply [text]'); (Note: Any chatter or information which goes over the tell channel -must- always be OOC in nature).
A tell is a term that describes anything readable about a player that give away information about the quality of their hand. Tells include a players actions, verbal behavior, expressions or body language.
a Swiss patriot who lived in the early 14th century and who was renowned for his skill as an archer; according to legend an Austrian governor compelled him to shoot an apple from his son's head with his crossbow (which he did successfully without mishap)
A Poker Tell is an unconscious habit, behaviour or physical sign that give other players more information as to the value of your hand. Good players can also use false tells to throw other players off.
A mannerism or a quirk in someone's behavior that signals the strength of their hand. The person giving the tell is not aware of what he's doing. It can be a slight shake of the hand, or the way he holds his good cards (as opposed to his bad ones), etc.
a tell is something that helps give away how good a hand a player is holding. For example, a bluffing player may be given away by the way he bets when he is bluffing, the amount he bets, the things he says or by involuntary physical twitches of some kind. Sometimes, the word, "tell" is used to specifically refer to changes in body language that give a player away, such as when a player sits forward in his seat whenever he has a good hand. Clearly some "tells" are not applicable in internet games.
A fascinating subject and one that is connected to the term “poker face”. A “tell” is something that you do that is giving away the strength of your hand, or even the hand itself. I have written an interesting article on the subject which can be found here on the subject of Poker Tells.
A clue or hint that a player unknowingly gives about the strength of her hand, her next action, etc. May originally be from "telegraph" or the obvious use that she "tells" you what she's going to do before she does it.

An action, or hint that a player unknowingly gives about the strength of their hand. "I knew by the way that Johnny crossed his arms that he had made his straight, as he did the same thing the last time he had made his hand."
A tell is a something that a player does or says that tells you something about his or her hand. I once played at a table at which one player pumped his leg vigorously if he liked his hand. Another player experienced a noticeable jump in respiratory rate when he liked his hand. It was fun to watch a hand in which one was sucking air like he had a bleeding chest wound, while the other was pumping his leg like a driver sliding past a stop sign on black ice.
An unintentional gesture or signal made by a player that gives other players information about the player's hand. For example, a player who twitches when they are bluffing. When playing online, the length of time someone takes to act can be seen as a tell.
A tell is any habit or behavior that gives other players more information about your hand than they would have simply from your play. For instance, you might unconsciously play with your chips every time you bluff. Or you might notice that another player blinks a lot whenever he has a strong hand. Mike Caro's "The Body Language of Poker" describes a large number of tells that can often be seen in inexperienced (and experienced) players.
a clue or hint that a player unknowingly gives about the strength of his/er hand, his/er next action, etc. There are a variety of ways in which a player may indicate (tell) what s/he is going to do before s/he does it. In a way, telling is similar to the tendency of some boxers to telegraph a punch. The opponent knows it is coming.
In poker, a tell is a detectable change in a player's behavior or demeanor that gives clues to that player's assessment of their hand. Behaviors that may exhibit tells include leaning forward or back, placing chips with more or less force, fidgeting, changes in breathing or tone of voice, facial expressions, direction of gaze or actions with the cards, chips and any cigarettes or drinks. A player gains an advantage if he observes another player's tell, particularly if the tell is unconscious and reliable.
term used to refer to a mound that has been built over centuries or millennia by layers of occupational debris. The word "tell" is an Arabic word meaning "mound." The Hebrew word is tel. Tells typically have sloping sides and a relatively flat top and are formed by settlemenst being built, destroyed, and then new settlements being built on top of the ruins of the previous settlements. As this phenomena occurs over the centuiries or millennia, the tell gets taller and the top covers less area. Settlements might have been built on top of previous setlements because of the attraction of the location (near water and food sources) or because the previous inhabitants returned and rebuilt. Archaeologists dig down into the tell from the top. The deeper they dig, the farther back in history they go.
Tell or tall (, tall, and , tel), meaning "hill" or "mound", is a type of archaeological site in the form of an earthen mound that results from the accumulation and subsequent erosion of material deposited by human occupation over long periods of time. A tell mostly consists of mudbrick or other architecture containing a high proportion of stone or loam as well as to a minor extent domestic refuse. The distribution of this phenomenon spans from the Indus valley in the east to southeastern Europe in the west.
