Question No.2 - Slow Play (Tournament) Heads up

It was last summer as I played on Europoker as one guy killed me with his slow play. He NEVER raised, called nearly everything (including all-in) and never bet more than the blinds were.

Most of the time I tried to be aggressive with this player, after 3 hours, I was mentally done, cause nearly everytime I attacked he showed me the nuts.
How do you play a guy who is playing slow so solid without raising ONE time and showing no signs of havin strong hands? He was simply untouchable, one of the best I've ever seen.


For the slowplay artist the answer is easy. Match him move for move playing just as slow as he does. One constant among slow players is their innate knack for not recognizing when they themselves are being slowplayed. Use this to your advantage and keep the pots small on the front end of hands. Only spring into action when you are sure your hand is better. Avoid betting mediocre holdings on the river as this is a bad play against this opponent.
