re: Poker & Slowplaying
I think table image has a lot to do with the effectiveness of slowplaying. In my regular home game, I'm viewed as a tight-agressive player but I'll vary it up by playing loose-agressive. I've found slow plays work best when i'm transitioning from loose- to tight- agressive modes of playing.
That being said; if i'm in the casino's in Atlantic City; most of the people don't know me from adam and I'm not sure they would know a slow play if it bit them on the tuckas. From my experience the majority of people in Casinos
are just there to have a good time and blow some cash. Not to play "real" Poker.
