Default Interesting way of mixing up your bets

With good starting hands like AA, KK, QQ and maybe even JJ making a standard preflop bet can be picked up on by players who were paying attention when these hands were played previously. I worked out a little system for these hands that is totally random and is hard to figure out. Say that when you get dealt AA you always seem to raise by 10xBB, eventually after enough hands like this you will get figured out and no one will call your bet. Now say you get dealt AA and want to raise, all you need to do is glance at your watch and see if the second hand is in the 1st, 2nd, 3rd or 4th quarter of the watch face and raise based on that. For example, AdAh and the second hand is in the 1st quarter, you raise 5xBB, if in the 2nd quarter raise 15xBB, 3rd quarter just call the BB or whatever raise is already on the board and if in the 4th quarter raise 10xBB. I tried this out with a few different pokected starting hands and it worked really well, there is absolutly no patern to pick up on and evn if ppl think you look at your watch a lot, who cares?

While this is a good system in that it's truly random, and can't be picked up on, it's IMO a waste of time in lower levels. People are generally not paying a lot of attention to what you're doing, and it's not necessary, really. Live or when playing for higher stakes, this is good.

Edit: Also, I should add that you probably want to do this with any raise you make, not just premium hands. Otherwise, it's easy to pick up when you've got a big pair (awkward raise size often) or something else (standard raise size).

Good point DoubleU, when I tried this out I used it at a 2/5NL game and used it with pocket 8's and above.
