Mathematically speaking, guessing opponents' hands relies heavily on individual's skill and it is heavily biased. Bias causes highly volatile performance, if not losing a lot of money. Furthermore, it is impossible to mathematically prove that a heuristic strategy or one's ability to read another player's hand is profitable in the long term.
