[Videos] 3 reasons why you shouldn’t slowroll

Slowroll: To take an inordinate amount of time to call an all-in bet or raise as the last player to act, and nobody else besides the all-in player remaining in the hand, all while holding the nuts.

This falsely raises your opponent’s expectations of winning the pot, only to shatter them, for no strategic reason. It is considered very unsportsmanlike.

First of all, our villain tries an angle shoot by faking an accidental raise…then he slowrolls his opponent. Watch this beautiful piece of karmic justice unfold.

This one does not have a happy conclusion, and serves as a warning to those who think it’s funny to slowroll someone.
