Sloaloll

Sloaloll poker

In offline poker, it is often possible to observe how players in world tournaments play back. Although more often there are still insta-calls with nuts, however, sloweroll also occurs. Such actions are immediately visible to almost everyone: the players themselves and the people watching the game. Everyone knows well that this is a manifestation of disrespect for other players.
There can be a lot of examples of a slauroll, but you should understand that any player’s actions aimed at convincing an opponent in his victory can definitely fall under the definition of a “slauroll”.
There are cases in the history of the world of offline poker, where slouoll did not cause a negative reaction, but rather an understanding and a smile. If we consider the distribution with the participation of the player Jack Uri, who at the time was 96 years old, then the reason for his slow action was certainly not the slowroll. Owing to his age, most likely, he simply could not quickly turn over his cards in a showdown.
Why is slowrolit bad?
There are two good reasons for this. The first is a manifestation of disrespect for the opponent. The second reason is a complete contradiction to the rule of absolute honesty in poker.
If you have the nuts, and all the money is in the center of the game table, then there is no point in pulling the process of the game. You know that victory is yours, so do not try to disguise it.
Be that as it may, you cannot force an opponent not to be slow-sloped. This is a personal matter of each player and a question of education. If you are covered up, the opponent showed his true face and thus lost the respect of other players, becoming a real victim of his own slowroll.
The concept of slauroll is sometimes confused with slowplay. Under slowplay understand the passive rally of a strong hand. Slowall is intentional actions aimed at convincing an opponent in his victory, this technique is actively studied in poker lessons.
