He check/called your 2/3 bet on the flop. He just check/called your 2/3 pot bet on the turn. Do you really think the time this guy took before shoving all-in on the river was because he went to fridge to get a cold pop right before shipped his stack?
And for all you know he/she is:
Playing other tables
Answering a phone call
Answering the door
Talking to his/her spouse
The dog jumped on his/her lap
The software itself delayed your action
His/Her connection slowed for a moment
Got involved in what was on TV for a sec (which I am guilty of ALOT unfortunately lol)
Hopped on a forum like CC for a sec and was typing somethin
I mean theres a million things that could happen. Not everyone is just staring at the screen waiting for their turn. Its online, some play casual. At a casino, obv you're locked into that and only that. Can't say the same for online.
