That's right, ten high. This player had plenty of chips left but decided to go up against me. He min raised the flop and turn which I just cold called. Then he shoved when a blank hit on the river. Pausing, I thought through the hand and realized that he had to be bluffing, nothing else made much sense.
I then realized that usually I would have snap folded and moved on, but pausing and thinking through the hand, I started to see that it was nothing but a bluff.
I don't watch poker much on tv as I can't stand the slowness of the action. But it has enlightened me in the sense that great poker players take their time to think through the hand.
I have decided to do just that, slow my game down a bit and think through each hand that I am involved. Of course, you may not need to do this with each hand when you know you have the stone cold nuts. But it does help, railing a friend a few nights ago, I was trying to slow him down and having him think about his bet sizing as he was not getting much value with his river bets when he had the nuts. Slowing down, not only allows you to think about bet sizing, but it can also be a bit of a "tell" to another player that you are not sure what to do.
