Live or Online?
I never did live but online i have. One guy was mouthing me off for whatever reason I cannot remember, twas like 5 years ago. We were playing 1/2 blinds and i had nut flush and he went all in on river for 90-100 dollars. I waited the whole time ... called the clock ... asked him what he had ect. Right last couple seconds I called and had the ultimate NUTS and won. Needless to say he immediately left the room.
I do it often in free rolls where it doesn't mean too much

I do to opponents i dont like all the time. Expecially if they push everyhand and i get a monster i may wait an til my clock runs before calling. Sometimes ill snap call too but prefer the slowroll, it says f u bud alot better . Only do it to the ones that run there mouths and stuff but its always enjoyable

I actually turned off the quates so everyone could bad mouth me and I wouldn't know. Found out I play much better when I am fully consetrated on the game itself. I only slow play on rebuy tournaments when trying to minimize the ante and blindes taken from me before rebuy period ends.

yeah i do this sometimes- of course playing online takes the thrill out of this since you don't get to see your opponents open jaws but if you want a reaction you can always have a peek at the chat window to get a refreshing does of fcuk you, you motherfcuker etc. so much fun...
For me, the only reason for stalling is when it gives you an advantage. Like moving past the bubble in a satellite. Perhaps if it would tilt an opponent that is also an advantage, but I can hardly imagine that anyone would tilt over that.

I often slowplay hands, but I do not always have the nuts in these cases. That is why I sometimes have to pay the prize and loose the pot eventually. But waiting so long with the nuts when the other guy is all in seems a bit unfair to me.

I dont see a point to slow play when other player is all in... like unobomber said I will slow play him if I dont wat him to fold, but when he is all in there is no point of slowplaying, because nothing will change...

slow rolling i cant remember for playing to many hands but only for those tight players and skilled ones u cant just move a bet easily to a skilled player as both of you are just trapping its other .for the fish player i think u need to be agro as they will call any hands they have.

Most of the time online when i slow rolled somebody they just don't say anything just once somebody screamed at me and i had to block him , had 87 suited hit it on the flop and just play call when he bets, in the end he had triple 8 so yeah he would definitely have stacked but still lol, anyway have fun at the tables and good luck it is fun to slow rolled somebody especially online but live it is better but prepare yourself for some swearing!!

I really don't care about doing it - altough I got slowrolled a great number of times (especially on online poker). Why wasting time on slowrolling someone, but instead you take him out and immidiattly start playing the next hand ?

No point for it. If they are going to be mad, stalling the hand wont do much of a difference. That video is an old one. Quite popular, with the main reason for it of course, his age. Imagine the excitement if he had won the tournament or the comments, after that. He would have made history
