I vote A. I occassionally do this. Very situational.

Well, thats why i do it, i imagine most donks do it for all of the reasons plus the reason 'too [censored] lazy to use the slide bar'

Agreed. The only time I've done this is when I've flopped a monster, checked into some nice action and decided to throw the rope out a little further.

This is so player dependant. I've seen this done with a naked flush draw, and I've seen it done with a flopped straight.

It usually means either big draw or big monster.

I forgot that i also do it on occassion if i want to give myself a free card when drawing to flush (occassionally straight).

Usual 'give yourself free cards 101' rules apply.
