What he was probably worried about is "how am I goning to get the most money possible in this pot?"He's entitled to do that, and to be as successful as he can at it. Maybe he did, maybe he didn't, it's usually a judgment call. You can play all the "if I had done this would he have done that?" after the fact games you want, but, you'll never really know for sure.Slow rolling is when you deliberately let the losing hand think he won, then after a time, rolling over the winner. The accompanying cliche is, "good hand....but, not good enough". It's showboating at it's worst, and has no value other than to make the slowroller look like a "look how cool my hand is" jerk and/or an angle shooter trying to get in somebodies skull.You want to critique the guys play, or style, that's your right, but, try to use the appropriate terminolgy.That was my point all along.
Ok, I don't know how you keep typing this long responses way otu of left field, but read your first post, your point is that the QQ man made a good play, and his hesitation showed weakness. Yes we all hesitate at times to conceal our hands ok, that's fine. The op was not mad about that at all. let me repeat, the op wasn't mad about the hesitation, he was mad about his opponent taking a long time to call his ALL IN opponent with top full house which is an instacall everytime. I will repeat again, he was mad about his opponent taking his time to call an all in opponent with the near nuts that he was obviously not folding. My first response to you was that you missed the point of the op, and your point had already been discussed bya few of us. That is all. He can't get into anybody's head or play mind games with top boat and an all in opponent because he is about to bust that opponent, what is the point. It is clearly a form of slowrolling, because he allows his opponent to think his all in bet is the best hand, when the QQ opponent knows he is about to win the hand. Let's leave it at that
