This is a discussion on $10 NLHE 6-max: Slow playing within the online poker forums, in the Cash Game Hand Analysis section; I 3bet with AA and i get call,i flop quads so i deside to slowplay,is ok or could i louse value slowplaying monster hands?
Hi freddydr87, thank you for posting your hands!
IMO you played the hand perfectly. When you 3bet and get called and the flop comes two aces it is very scary for the Villain in position, because this is a singular spot where we have all the Ax combos, for sure, and Villain have none.
This is the only spot where I would be checking and calling and slow play quite a bit.
We see that Villain is a recreational which is real good:
A) Villain has a broken stack
B) Villain had reverse implied odds and no price for calling a 3.8x 3bet OOP with 22-66 (I wouldn't because it never setmines.
C) Villain is just clicking buttons, because, as I said before, it has no ace in its range and when we check flop Villain sends a decent C-Bet which is lovely and awesome! Means that Villain understands check/call as a weakeness.
D) It is possible that even when Villain doesn't complete a Full House in the River that it tries to push river for bluff (because it might think that because there are two aces in the board that you have none)
If you bet flop you could make Villain fold all of its junk and weaker hands. By checking you opened the door for it tries to bluff you with a huge nonsense range of hands. Fantastic hand, thanks again! Respect always!
I think, it is perfect to check-call this flop, since you have the board so incredibly crushed. The only good hand, he can have, is 44, and that should not even be in his range, when he call a 3-bet with only 50BB behind. He should only have something like 88 or better. I dont like checking the river though. When he check back the turn, he probably has some kind of showdown value, so he is very unlikely to bet, if you check again. This time he did bet, but he would obviously also have called, when he just rivered a boat.
