What is Slowplay poker?

It is a strategy that poker players use when they have a strong hand but try to bluff other players in believing otherwise. Usually, when a player is slowplaying they are attempting to deceive their opponents. Rather than opting to place bets or raise, players will check and call during their turns, disguising themselves as players with a weak hand. The objective of this strategy is to lure the opposite players into a pot who might fold to a raise, or make the player to bet more strongly.

David Sklansky is an American poker player and author. He is known for writing about poker strategies and using a mathematical approach to the game. Here are a few tips that he mentions about slowplay poker:

A poker player needs to have a strong hand to attempt slowplay.

The pot must not be very large when slowplaying is attempted.

The players must believe that they have the cards and the capacity to drive out opponents by showing aggression when the pot grows bigger.
