So last night at my local a hand between 2 players happened and it was downright hilarious , in my eyes. Obviously for the loser of the hand it was looked at as slow rolling or Some form of Taunting.
Stakes - 1/3 Full Table - 9 Players
(Slow Roll Robbie)) Straddles for $6
4 Callers back to SRR
SRR Looks at his first card looks around smiling then peeks at his second, Looks around and raises to $62
Flop Comes 4d4c2s
SRR does not look at his cards at all Blurts out "this should be fun" and raises to $45
Other player - Hesitates reraises to $100
SRR - Thinks for a couple minutes Still not looking at his hand and calls
Turn comes 4s
SRR again does not look at his hand again , Raises to $125
Instantly gets reraised to $300
SRR still does not look at his hand , says "theres no way you have a 4 " and some other things basically saying there was to much money preflop to have a 4 so maybe he has Kings or Aces. after about a couple minutes Calls
RIVER....Comes a big ol Juicy King of Diamonds
SRR Does not look at his hand but says to the guy " Looks like we're getting it all in anyways you probably hit your kings but I cant fold ..Pushes himself all in with $160 behind
Other guy snap calls and says "yep youre right" flips over Friggin Kings ….As some of you are reading you already know this outcome if you've read between the lines. SRR says "good hand I have aces so I couldn't fold" flips them over and he is Holding Ac and a FOUR OF FRIGGIN HEARTS. The guy who lost UNLEASHES and calls him the biggest Piece of shit in the world , Screams for the floor and says the Guy baited him into a call by acting as if he didn't have anything. The Floor first tried to calm this guy down , and asked the dealer how the hand played out. SRR kept stating he did not realize he had a 4 in his hand and he was not slow rolling at all , he thought he had 2 black Aces the entire way. The Floor brought over the other floor manager to discuss the situation. After literally 15 minutes of them still discussing the situation , myself and another guy at the table interrupted and said that we watched SRR the entire hand and the only time he looked at his cards was during the initial preflop raise and that We both thought he was being honest about the situation. Plus another key factor is I've played with the guy on many occasion and he's mistaken his hand a few times before on 2 occasion he actually lost a lot so in my eyes he wasn't slow rolling. The Floor kept talking and basically said if It was during a tournament he would get a warning but in Cash there really isn't a rule towards slow playing. Which of course set the losing guy completely over the rail and he eventually ended up being escorted out. The hilarity to me comes from you could literally look at this dude and you knew he thought he had aces , He had the opponent figured out perfectly and even though it's shitty that it ended up like that , That's the life of poker
That has happened to me before...wasn't wearing my reading glasses and played A4 like AA...bet big and got a fold on the river. For some reason, I took another look...damn near crapped when I saw A4...my heart was pounding for 15 minutes.
But even in the worst case, SSR was taunting his opponent into calling...isn't that the same as bluffing? We've all seen Will Kassouf do worse at the WSOP. That guy had no reason to get that angry that he got escorted out. If he can't handle losing, either financially or emotionally, he should stop playing poker.
