Reverse Tell

What Does It Mean in Poker?

Purposefully trying to deceive your opponent with a deliberate physical action.

For example, if you’re holding the nuts, you might put out a reverse tell by taking a long time to make a betting/calling decision, with the aim of making your opponent think you have a marginal hand.
