    I think it's kind of funny too.

    I don't really empathize with poker players that get hot under the collar by a slow roll.

    If someone wants to act like a bit of a asshole, thats up to them.


    But agree with the Poker Is Fun sentiment! It really is, live.

    Got 12 Aussie Millions satellite tourneys over 4 days planned for next week.

    Actually Sin... got story for you about quads.

    Just to show what a newbie I still am really.

    Played an $1100 deepstack last Sunday as you know.

    Maybe 3rd hand of the tourney I flopped a set and then came up with quad 10s on the turn. Guy to my left in the SB had flopped a full house, (Qs over Ts) and was the only other person in hand. We had both checked flop and turn. (as I had not engaged my brain obviously)

    I wasn't thinking straight and was kind of certain he had nothing (as he was about me as it turned out) and had been joking around and friendly with him before that... and for some reason just was so certain he had nothing I never gave any other option a moments thought.

    Anyway he bet $400 on the river and I just called and showed my quads.

    Table went into uproar about me soft playing "my friend".

    I knew about the rule of having to bet the nuts if last to act... but like I said was just not thinking straight. So it really did look like a definite soft play to the table.

    I think they forgave me eventually and thought I was just a silly a fish. Until I took most of them out.

    I am still embarrassed even typing how I played that hand actually. Was a good lesson to have my mind in gear from hand one after I sit down in future though I guess.

    Probably could have doubled up right there.

    I think everybody who has ran into this after playing enough hands. Sometimes you get hyperfocused on the hand and/or not see the proper nuts, therefore no big deal. That said if you knew the person and were soft-playing the player, it is very understandable for the table to get upset and likely a tourney penalty.

    Cheers!

    I immediately said that I knew the rule and offered to take the orbit penalty.

    I was more embarrassed than anything.

    The talking before the hand is annoying but fine I guess but cmon man just turn the fukin cards over. Wasting minutes in a timed rake 5-10 game like a douche. If they had any balls the table would make him pay the floorman when he comes for the next half hour.

    Varies by person, but I found this funny, and probably would have found it funny even on the losing end. Guy put a lot of work into maximizing the entertainment value of the situation, I can appreciate that.

    If the atmosphere is different and people are getting upset about the loss, or the wasted time matters to them, it's a different story....but doesn't seem to be the case here.

    I let a relatively new guy to the table off the hook a few months ago. Didn't yet know he was not only a maniac but a heavy whiner; at the time, the only interaction we'd had was over preferred pickle brands Had AA and was letting him bet it for me even though I was OOP; on potentially scary river, he brings forward the $100 max bet (dumb spread games ) and I call before he counts it out...at which point he pulls back all but a minimum bet claiming he only meant to bet that. Dealer and table was trying to make him bet the max but I said I didn't care. After I found out what a douche he was, I wish I had that decision back

    That was the longest slow roll I've seen. Probably way too long.

    But I agree... I think the slow roll is a part of the game... I don't understand why people get pissed off by it?

    The slowroll was funny at first but it got to a point that it dragged on. Like when he asked him to show his cards 93x.

    Floor should kill his hand.

    All the cards are out, the betting is complete, its pretty obvious what he has; so he either wants to show it and take the money or wants to be an unfunny stand up comedian.
