Well, it's a call/shove. They both have similar objectives. They're calling the bet in hopes of someone behind them to raise/reraise so that they can jam it in and pick up the dead money and isolate it to heads-up. This is nowhere near "worst play" but yet, one of best plays in poker and one of best trapping techniques. Even in casinos
, when I did this and I've taken lot of dead money and win the big pot, I love it when someone says "i knew he had Aces"(after they call off someone's raise and then forfeit their bet to me). Makes me LOL.
Lot of people here say that it's obvious I will have Aces or Kings if I do that but once their money is placed up and the pot is bloated up and juicy, people get emotional and can't tend to let go of their bet, hence, calling you with wide range of hands and hoping you're just doing it with low/mid pocket pair or any Ace.
