      Yes, in such situation it's good idea to slowplay :P I would do the same.

      Good question Werkon. All i am going to add to this thread is that on this rainbow flop with no straight draws possible i may well have done the same thing hoping to extract more value. Lets see what the judges say.

      I would be very suspicious if short stack raised PF and is not betting after I check

      Nice slow play and bet on turn to get rid of odds for that flush draw.
      well done.

      The board leaves no draws that your villain might try to chase so it would be ok to slowplay if not... Yes, there's always this 'if not' :) . I mean, every thinking oponent will get suspicious - they know the strategy and know cbetting is complusory agains one oponent.

      Don't try this later on - oponents on higher limits are rather thinking ones. Here it's of course good since you allow your oponent to catch some weaker hand that will invest some money into the pot and still the hand you most likely beat. But thinking oponents are aware of our betting patterns and won't be fooled by something like that.
