I just read “Deception Detection” and I must say that I am surprised that no one used high-limit poker players to analyze if a person is bluffing. The art of poker is calling people on their bluffs.

A successful poker player must be able to bluff successfully, at least on occasion, and conversely to detect “tells” from opponents, whether the tell gives away a good hand or a bluff. The current popularity of poker on TV should provide hundreds of hours of footage, including the players’ hidden cards, for researchers to analyze.
