great strategy that works every time....can u see the logic?

Postby Fary1975 » Mon Mar 07, 2005 1:42 am

whatever your hand may be always CHECK if you have a good hand (unless you are last to act).........let me tell you the pros of this strategy.......if your holding a huge hand and you check it it gives the other players a chance to bluff at the pot so you can raise them and make huge profits.......your probably thinking what if i check my NUTS full house and the other guy also checks and everyone at the table thinks you're an idiot for checking.......well guess what you're not b/c chances are if he didn't raise when you tried to check raise him than he probably would've folded anyways if you had bet.....therefore that is why this strategy works most of the time......

I hate slow playing hands i just played in a live game, turned my flush check, and so did the other player, river paired the board, lost to a full house.

Im a fan of a check raise, but checkin all the way through isnt my favorite, allows ppl to catch too many cards

slow playing works well as you state when your near last to play in the round, but you must also take into consideration the state of flop, possible run flush etc, many times i have a middle pair which has either been top card in the flop or just in my hand, i would then slow play it depending on my table position and state of flop to pick up what i can, of course can be dangerous if someone holding higher pair also slow plays, but i find i win around 70% of time using this method.

i agree

i do this all the time and it does work. either they fold out to u or call u and you get the extra chips. only thing i do different is that i will bet the river no sense in losing a bet, if he folds so what.

No way.  You have to make it expensive for people with lessor hands than you to draw out.  If you are playing AQ and a guy calls the blind after you with KJs.  Do you really want to check a flop like AK4?  For one thing, you are keeping a guy in the hand that doesn't belong, and second, you could be losing out on your earning potential. Your strategy is usually referred to as "fancy" by Caro.  You try to do too much with too little.

I disagree, checking hte nuts is good... but if they bluff the pot....simply take a LOOOOOONG time (maybe talk and say... hmm, I want to call I'm on a draw etc.)  then simply call.  The next card probably won't be the one you "need" (though you already have it)  so he will stab harder, and you'l simply call, and on the river, when he bets, you raise that way you suck him for 3 bets, rather than having him fold after 1

If you are talking about playing the nuts, sure.  If you are talking about playing a good hand or strong hand, slow playing is a bad idea.

You cannot play this way all the time in my opinion. Once you start playing alot of freerolls you will run into the same people everywhere. Change your game up sometimes. If you play the same all the time people will pick up on it IMO.

I too agree that you have to change up your game.  The only way the slow play will be successful is if they haven't seen it done by you much.  Otherwise, the minute you check/raise they will all fold thinking that "here he/she goes again".  That is not the way to build your stack or take people out.

always check?

Postby Tirs1969 » Sun Nov 20, 2005 12:36 am

as far as preflop, i generally like to raise a monster hand. get all the small fish and chasers out of the way and let the big guns play. besides, the flop has a way of turning big cheese hands into melted butter.
