Being that you can see a majority of their hand, players must compare what their opponents could have to what they do have. Then, look at what could come up next and where you would stand.
Analyzing opponent's bets and body expressions is the only way to make your educated guess. That is why you have to pay attention to the way they bet in the past as well as how they are betting now.
