SLOWPLAY!!!!

Postby Chammat » Fri Sep 02, 2005 4:54 am

I WAS JUST WONDERING HOW YOU GUYS SLOW PLAY THE NUTZ I FIND IF I THINK IM IN FRONT I SHALL SLOW PLAY IN STAGES!!

E.G: BLINDS 100/200

STAGE 1!! PREFLOP Ah Kh = MINIMUM RAISE
STAGE 2!! FLOP AsKd2c  = 2XBIGBLIND
STAGE 3!! TURN 5h = 4 X BIG BLIND
STAGE 4!! RIVER 9d = 8 X BIG BLIND

DO YOU GUYS THINK THIS IS A GOOD WAY OF SLOWPLAYING?????
IF NOT HOW DO YOU SLOW PLAY A STRONG HAND?????

It depends on various factors such as the opponent's playing style, the exact situation, tourney or ring game, etc.  As a simple example, if the opponent is a maniac who will bet out with almost anything, it may be best to check-call or check-raise rather than leading out yourself.


And if you're leading the betting, many people wouldn't consider it slow-playing.

This probably doesn't belong here, but was wondering if anyone knows how to increase the number of stars associated with one's membership?

I wouldnt ever play that hand that way Kermit. In most cases if you top two pair and the are connected or semi-connected the straight draw will follow about one third of the time. To play it that way you are playing with fire and will often get burned.

I agree with Arjonius.... although rarely I will switch to be a little more agressive if the other players are waffling.  Of course there's always "the gut feeling" that comes into play as well.  Mine usually steers me well.

i think i would definately put out a big raise pf with ak otherwise people who you dont want might be sticking around. lets say i have Q-J and you put out a small raise i would probobly call and if i hit the flop and you didnt then you would be far behind. just my suggestion though

Slow play

When you slow play you risk being "drawn out on", so you got to ask yourself; "Am I willing to die with this hand?".  It is often more profitable to slow play a particularly good hand, BUT, today, with THIS particularly good hand your opponentes may draw out on you.  Are you prepared to accept this result if it happens ? ? If not then Bet your hand.  This is a great question to ask yourself late in a NL Tournament when you get K-K or A-A or when you flop a medium two pair.
