yes slow play is excellent againest bluffers, but it's only best to do if there isn't many people in the hand and ur hand is very strong.

I have found that if you are not careful, you will slow play yourself right out of a hand.

I did that and the guy I was heads up with, I had middle pair, went to the river and he was on bottom pair till he made a set.

Looking back, sometimes its not worth it.

really depends on a number of factors.
-How much of a stack I have and how much my opponents have.
-How late in the tourney and how high the blinds are.
-What type of players are left in the hand whether they have been loose or tight in previous play.
Bet generally I will play consistant with the way I had been playing previous hands trying not to show im slow playing by checking too much even if I have the nuts.
But always when slow playing I am conscious of any possible beats on the table as to not get too carried away when I do start raising the bet.

if there is a flush draw and you have a set then you should defiantly push hard...remember that you have the percent advantage and you should be the one pushing all in not the person on the draw if need be

slow playing only works on a hand that doesnt show a str8 or a flushh or pair on board(unless you  have the 3rd with a good kicker)otherwise you will most likely get caught on turn or river by people chasing garbage and hitting trips or inside straight
