Well, the thing about it, relating to not playing fast is,
1) when we flop a flush or turn a flush. it is not super obvious
2) we disguise our hand because we dont instantly mash pot
3) if they hit, we lose less money and are less committed.
4) if we are not betting non flush hands on flush boards it makes it hard for us to bet it because our range is 100% flush.
