Default ($20) Slow played this set of deuces.

This seemed like a good spot to slow play this. Reason: I'm not going to get any action with this flop anyway unless somebody is going to bluff at it. True? I'm hoping to see some bigger cards come.

Of course, look what happens...I continued my wonderful little trap with the turn. Would you raise the river? And expect to see Ax or Kx call? I just called figuring I'd be beat if called or re-raised. I was just done with this beautifully well-executed play.

Of course, no reads this early.

Party Poker No-Limit Hold'em Tourney, Big Blind is t15 (10 handed) converter

UTG (t785)
UTG+1 (t585)
UTG+2 (t800)
Hero (t800)
MP2 (t1055)
MP3 (t800)
CO (t800)
Button (t790)
SB (t785)
BB (t800)

Preflop: Hero is MP1 with 2[img]/images/graemlins/diamond.gif[/img], 2[img]/images/graemlins/club.gif[/img].
<font color="#666666">3 folds</font>, Hero calls t15, MP2 calls t15, <font color="#666666">3 folds</font>, SB completes, BB checks.

Flop: (t57.50) 7[img]/images/graemlins/club.gif[/img], 2[img]/images/graemlins/spade.gif[/img], 4[img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img] <font color="#0000FF">(4 players)</font>
SB checks, BB checks, Hero checks, MP2 checks.

Turn: (t57.50) 4[img]/images/graemlins/diamond.gif[/img] <font color="#0000FF">(4 players)</font>
SB checks, BB checks, Hero checks, MP2 checks.

River: (t57.50) 7[img]/images/graemlins/spade.gif[/img] <font color="#0000FF">(4 players)</font>
<font color="#CC3333">SB bets t30</font>, BB folds, Hero calls t30, MP2 folds.

Pretty bad. With a monster hand like this, you wanna build the pot. Don't even bother calling preflop if you're gonna play it like this.

I suppose you could do something like miniraise the river, but I don't see you making much more from this hand and a reraise would just suck. I think you're better of calling.

i dont like the flop check. the turn check is worse than folding aces preflop

no it's not. You can always get someone to bluff on the river.

I think it is pretty easy to know if your beat here so trying to squeeze a few extra chips isn't the worst thing in the world.
