      Villain had AA

      Guess what would have happened if that 9 did not come.. yeah I would have probably stacked him.

      So please.. whoever is new and thinks slowplaying is good.. because some pro does it on HSP, it is not ment for beginners.

      True, if you don't slowplay monsters/5bet 86o preflop vs nits you will never make it to the nosebleed. imo.

      I think slow playing is actually a good technique to use with certain cards.

      I remember raising pre-flop with pocket 10's. flop came 6TK. Villain bets, I raise, villain calls. Turn comes another 10. Villain checks, I check behind. River is a blank, and he bets big. I raise, he calls and shows AK, I show quad tens and win.

      In that spot, If I jumped out and bet the second 10 I knew he was going to fold. This is the best time to slow play or check behind I think, when you have the nuts.

      Slowplaying a monster post-flop (full house, quads) can be good in some cases yes but an overpair is NOT a monster :p

      Yeah. I thought that was obvious because of the stupid bluff, the strange size of blinds and my silver status;)
