I find myself unable to find a consensus on how to play pocket rockets, so how about talking about slow playing them in MTT vs cash games instead of slow playing them vs fast playing them?
I've found MUCH more success slow playing them in cash games vs slow playing them in tournaments (esp MTT). It makes sense: when 15k chips are a stand-in for a $5 entry fee, it is easy to take a chance and play more loosely; when it's real cash in a 1-2 game, that 78 suited doesn't seem quite as valuable.
Still, I'm amazed at how often they get cracked in cash games.
What have you observed about slow playing bullets in cash v MTT?
Cash, i do not slowplay them, coz when i do, i usually crack. I play them agressive, in cash it more i psihology stuff to win pots (into their faces) no mether size pot. MTT, again agressive, coz lot of people have cards to play with, range with big stacks are higher so, easily 910 can call you and, bust you "S" hard. And in cash game, people are playing little more tighter with real money on table, so suppose you will easy win AK AQ KK QQ. and that are the hand that will follow your (and cahs game and mtt) pre flop raise. Slowplay can start (i do not prefer) after flop, but preflop always raise with AA.
