Big pots and slow play, not a good mix
In poker, most especially in Texas Holdem, the term slow play refers to a tactic where you try to lure your opponents into making a big bet so that you can then trap them and eventually win a big pot. slow play is most commonly used with a good pre-flop hand like pocket Aces on Kings. The tactic is, instead of betting big, the player will sit back and just either call or check like he has a hand that is not worth anything and just praying that the opponent has lower cards and that he will cover it by putting in a big bet.
This is a classic poker maneuver that is quite effective and has resulted in players winning big. But lately this tactic has not been as effective because of the simple reason that almost all players are now using the slow playing tactic on their big hands that it has become a very expected maneuver.
But you can still use the slow playing tactic to your advantage.
When you get a big hand, you should start betting. But instead of trying to lure your opponents to make the move, you should bet yourself. Amateurs think this is just a waste of a big hand because the rest of the table will likely fold. But in reality you will normally get some betting action from a player.
Performing this tactic is effectively like double bluffing especially since most of your opponents would do a slow play. Your opponents will think that you are bluffing and thus will get some betting action. This would in turn result in you winning more money.
