      Preflop: Hero is BU with 6:club: , 6:diamond:
      4 folds, MP2 calls $0,10, MP3 folds, CO calls $0,10, Hero calls $0,10, SB raises to $0,50, 2 folds, CO calls $0,40, Hero calls $0,40.

      Flop: ($1,70) 6:heart: , A:spade: , 4:heart: (3 players)
      SB checks, CO checks, Hero checks.

        SB was a fishy maniac player (calling bluffing everything) so I decided to slow play here.

      Turn: ($1,70) 9:diamond: (3 players)
      SB bets $0,50, CO calls $0,50, Hero raises to $1,50, SB raises to $4,08 (All-In), CO folds, Hero calls $2,58.

      River: ($10,36) 4:diamond:


      Final Pot: $10,36

      if you were almost sure SB would bet on the turn, it's well played, since CO would probably think the same, he will probably call the SB, bringing some extra money in the pot

      Preflop OK

      If SB calls everything, why not bet flop for value?

      I like the turn, but I`d bet something on flop. By giving free cards you let opponents draw to flush, str8 and even higher set.

      I really prefer to take pot (its pretty big anyway) on flop and don`t risk opponents outdrawing me.

      Never slowplay versus opponents who call too much as you simply risk a free-card for comparitively little gain. Also, that board will connect with many hands that limp/call PF at NL10.

      I like the way villain slowplayed this set. :D

      Hi guys!

      Thanks, Nunki! Great example.

      @ rubysilesia: If you have the read that "SB was a fishy maniac player (calling bluffing everything)" it's an additional reason to bet the flop for value.

      Good luck at the tables!
