Ill do it occasionaly on line to mess with guys heads up. Try to make them think I was bluffing
Funny story..Few weeks ago I get AQ preflop in live 1/2 game. I raise 3x BB in position after we had 6 limpers. Get two calls. Flop comes A J 6. Rainbow. SB bets 14 into like a 45 dollar pot, CO calls, I Raise to 28. Both players call.
Turn comes like 7 and now it's truly a rainbow board so now flush draw possible.
They check to me I bet 36. They both call. Now at this point I know one is a calling station and likely holds a hand like J Mid like 8 or 9.
River comes Q. I knew neither had played K10. Figured one played weak ace and other was station previously mentioned.
They check and I bet 68. Calling Station quickly folds and Weak ace is contemplating call. Think's I have straight. Since I know he doesn't have trips or K10 my two pair is good. So he showed me his ace and just his ace. I then turned over my ace so he knew I didn't have straight. He thinks then calls and shows like A4 and I flip top two.
it was one situation where revealing one of my cards made me some money. I knew he didn't have me beat cause he would have reraised and he frequently plays shitty hands. Table got a good laugh out of that hand.
