I recently read an article on heads up and they
said you should almost always slowplay monsters
now I know that always is a controversial word in poker
I mean there are just so many situational factors
But is it a good idea to slow play monsters as a standard play?
I'm talking QQs pre flop or on the flop or a set postflop
Particularly at the micro/low stakes
The reason I am asking is I recently played a $3 Turbo HU sng
and every time I had a bigger pocket pair and raised 2x the guy folded
unless he had say Ax or any 2 paints in which case he might raise it
but if I checked or completed pre flop then bet the flop
he would call more often or even raise so when I got pocket QQs
I slow played pre flop bet half pot oop on the flop of KT4 (I think it was) then checked
the turn (a brick) then he bet about 3/4 pot I called then the river (another brick) check
he then pushes I call he showed up with Tx lol
so what do you think?
