I'm not a fan of slow playing but here's one that I played somewhat tricky.
Bellagio 1-3 $400 Effective Stacks
PRE: I called a $13 BU raise in the SB with 55 from a kid. It ended up being HU.
FLOP: Flop was 593r, I checked to him, He c-bet $20, I called.
TURN: 2d - Check/Check
RIVER: Ax - I checked/He bet $25/I raised him to $75 and he folded
Thoughts: It looked like he was in 'one in done' mode on this flop with overs like KQ,AX etc and I'd seen him C-bet flops then shut down to any action many times before... The turn was 2d. I checked , he checked back. River was an Ace. He seemed to perk up on that card and it meshes well with his raising range..so I decided to let him bet. I checked, he bet $25, I raised him to $75 and he folded.
In spots like this is it better to just bet the river? I'm not sure he was 90% to bet and for it to get checked back OTR is a disaster.
He complimented me on letting him catch up. Showed an ace and folded. I didn't write this one down immediately which is why suits are missing but there was no FD on the flop.'
P.S. Yes, this is Vegas... People fold a pair of aces raises *ALL* the time...sadly
