found that short video a bit helpful. I would just add that you shouldn't worry about tells most of the time over thinking your own can cause them and they are pretty much over rated. a good poker player can win the game without ever even looking at his own hand so remember you aren't playing the cards you're playing the people. sometimes it's a gamble and others it's all about the statistics so knowing the percentages would help out allot whether you want to play purely based on them or not.
another good trick is choosing the right moments to show your cards and when not to, when you fold or win a hand. you can set up what they think of your style of playing by showing what kind of cards you fold and what kind of cards you win with, but of course that's just what you want them to think. for example if you are feeling lucky and pretty much have their playing style locked down then you can show that you were bluffing just so you can raise big with a good hand and get them to call. get good at reading people's personalities and emotions, study your percentages, be creative, and keep your cool. ;-)

Hand in hand with the practicing, I would recommend studying Statistics & Opponents Tells. There are 52 cards in a deck. You know your (-2) Hand, Wagers, (-3) Flop, (-1) Turn, and end with the (-1) River. People do/say things (Tells), that may help you profile them.
