Default my best ever benefit from a slow play

Was playing at PokerRoom two nights ago primarily on the .25/.25 NL tables, and came out ahead about $45 for the night. Almost $36 of that came in one of the last hands of the night.

I had been up and down, winning some nice $3-5 pots with good plays, and then giving them back with dumb plays. At this point my stack was just over $30, and I was getting tired. For the most part I had been playing really tight on hand selection (many of my losses came from being over aggressive and making bad decisions post flop to keep going with hands), but I had 4h 6h and I was on the button. 4 people limped in, so I figured what the heck and I called. Maybe I'd get lucky. SB folded, BB checked.

Flop was 4d Kd 6d. Two pair but a flush board. Everyone checks to me, and I bet $1 as a feeler to see what's going on (and maybe to steal the pot). BB called as well as 1 other. I figured that meant they either had the king paired or they were 1 card from the flush.

Turn is a Jc. BB checks, MP checks, and I check.

River is 6s. Full house! BB goes all in for $10, MP goes all-in to $25.50, and I call.

BB turns over Ad 7d. MP turns over Qd 3d. I turn my 4h 6h and the other two spend the next couple of minutes venting on the chat while I pull down the biggest pot of the night that I had seen.

Thank God for slow play. I personally hate to do it myself, but I'm sure glad they did!

I played 4 more hands, never saw anything to play, and went to bed happy and knowing I lucked into a monster hand there.

Very nice!

Always great when someone who's trying to put a play on you has it backfire in their face, lol. You won a big pot and they learned a lesson.

I'm usually the guy who flopped the non-nut flush. So, I have no congratulations for you.

Why the "it will take so long"-attitude? You'll be playing poker. I suppose you enjoy that, right?
