Poker Face by Lady GaGa is a song that explains a woman that plays men like she plays cards.
The idea behind the song was to be with a man but fantasizing about a woman, hence the man in the song needs to read her "Poker Face" to understand what is going through her mind.
She states in her lyrics that she will not openly use affection, like kisses, hugs or telling a man she loves him to get what she wants. All she needs to do is use her sex appeal and she will be able to ``take your bank''.
Once she gets him hooked on the idea of being with her, she is able to play his heart. In this song, she is relating her ability to play cards and bluff to being able to play a man's feelings against him.
She can take away his better judgment by allowing him to think that everything is his idea and she is just following along with it. However, she is truthfully the one that is in control and is able to manipulate him into doing what she wants.
