Default how to size up an opponent for NO-LIMIT holdem

i feel a very big advantage in no-limit holdem is being able to size up your opponent accurately. Sometimes these pregame assumptions about someone are not always correct, but eventually you will get to where you can just tell who the beginner is and who the veteran is....
1. first assign them to a group/stereotype them.
young/business suit-----comfortable financially and willing to lose some dollars.
long hair. dressed unaccordingly------ perhaps hes lost everything gambling lol and you can assume he is no good.
2. NEVER stereotype a girl into the "girls cant play section" because if you underestimate a female within minutes youll look down and notice your chips have migrated to her end of the table.

although clothes. and age are not a BIG factor they still contribute to how someone can play poker. so take these tips and use them in your next casino vacation

i never played a live poker.. but, first time i travel somewhere i'll do that..

so, people with fancy suits and brief cases are rich and bad players who don't care about money... people with long hair and bad suits are gamblers who lost everything... but you didn't told us how to recognize good players ?
and for my debut playing live poker, i think i'll wear jeans and fancy long sleeve t-shirt! and i think i'll carry the glasses, too

and if across the table i see very beutiful lady, i'll give her all my chips smile - no doubt!!

I don't think it is a good idea to stereotype people in this manner. I know that when Negraneau plays in the ring he dresses like a hobo to set an image as do other pro or semi pro players. The best way to determine what a player may or may not do is to watch them play.
