Watching S2 E18 - Up the Long Ladder

At ~ 34mins Geordi says that he can detect when humans lie from his visors...

which means, Geordi was cheating his ass off later on during poker! He can't read Worf (who sucks at poker anyway) or Data...

Ya know what, now that I'm bringing it up, I remember him saying that he can read the card anyway.

Fuck that cheater Geordi

They literally go over this in an episode. They each have their own unique talents negating the others'.

I think you're just thinking of the longstanding /1701/ meme about how the poker games are all played for arbitrary chips by a bunch of people who cheat in some way. And Worf.
>Troi detects emotions and can't turn it off
>Geordi can see through the cards and can detect changes in blood flow, allowing him to see distress when someone lies
>Data cannot help but calculate possibilities every time a card is dealt and is counting cards 100% of the time
>Riker must keep cards up his sleeve, because in spite of all of the above he wins the most out of everyone
Worf (and occasionally Dr Crusher) just get their asses kicked by all of the above.

I was watching recently, I think it was season 7 Parallels, anyway Geordi's visor pushed Worf into an alternative reality when it was activated, it emits that much, so if it's going through everything he should be able to set it up to see the cards.

How useful is counting cards in poker anyway? Depending on the variant you aren't going to see much more than your own hand. I'm sure it's useful for working out your relative odds of success but it's not a guaranteed win like it is in blackjack,

I was working it out, he would wait for another player (no suspicions of cheating then) to get a good hand with the flop, his hand was better, then let them bet. If the other players had no hand between them but we're betting a bluff and his hand was better then he would fold. Also, the fourth card could be seen on top of the deck, possibly the fifth card if his visor is top stuff.

Apologies, I meant to quote the line about Data counting cards.

I'll wait until Discovery season 2 starts and they mark them down to a dime.
