Slow players can cause some major headaches. Is there a worse feeling than thinking you’re value betting with top pair only to find out they were slow playing AA?
Even though these players can somethings show up with monster hands like AA, KK, QQ, and AK after making passive plays preflop, there are a limited number of monster combos possible. In this video, SplitSuit explains how many combos there are, how to think about these combos compared to their entire range, and how he approaches smaller games that contain more slow playing opponents.
Just because they may sneak up on you with a hidden monster from time to time, does NOT mean you want to become overly fearful and nitty. So understand the combos, add them when appropriate, and adjust your lines when necessary.
