      Hey there.

      I have almost never seen anyone do it, slowrolling in online poker. If u got the nuts u usually INSTAcall his all in.

      Why?

      I understand that u don t do it in a live game, since u usually socialise with the people on the table and u don t wanna be a dick.

      What do u think, is it the same in online poker? Or is online poker different? I mean if u think about it, there are 3 options if u slowroll someone with the nuts or what feels to be the nuts.

      1) he realises that u slowrolled him on purpose and its going to maybe effect him in some way
      2) he, or someone else at the table, thinks ur an idiot and it did really take u so much time to figure out that u call with a hand that should be an instacall
      3) people think ur not really paying attention

      All of this 3 are good for you, so why is almost no one ever doing it in online poker? Manners? Or does just no one think the way i do?

      It gives you bad karma.

      It amazes me how people think that being anonymous gives them rights to do something they would 't do face to face. I mean, those same things can happen in live games, so following your logic wouldn't it be good to slowroll in live games too?

      This!

      I have always seen poker as a game of gentlemen (and fine ladies) where all stupid acting is (or should be) prohibited. Slowrolling is one of those things you should never do no matter if it`s live or online. Just my two cents...

      In general I do not really care, and I do not do it often. However if I do it, then it is just to piss off the player. You can hate me now, bye.
