Hello m8s, I was playing at a 5c/10c cash table earlier today and was intentionally slowrolled by a player with the nut flush that I was trying to rep.  Do you guys encounter this often and how do you respond to it?  This is the first time in 7 years playing here that this has happened to me on a cash table.

Sometimes as they are playing lots of tables it can seem that you are being slow rolled when in fact they are just busy making decisions on other tables.
Will all my888poker members please ensure they have their 888poker player name in their profile.

I will give them the benefit of the doubt this time.  He/she has a 3betting range as wide as the grand canyon so I will get them next time.

LOL  I often slow play big hands, letting the other player do the betting, more  often than not it pays off!  If you are trying to bluff and they have you are never going to get them off the hand no matter what.  AND on the lower levels a chaser will think nothing of calling trying to hit a straight or flush.  The amount of times my KK or AA has been done over by a small flush or a straight, EVEN when I massively raised pre flop.  I just add a fish to them this tells me they will call with over cards on the table, chasing to make a flush or straight.  That way I hope to fold by the river. I sat on a table yesterday with 3 fish and a donkey, and no matter how I played I was called  John whats your poker name, just to see if I have played you on the cash tables?  When I run bad I drop right down to run off the bad beats rather than losing all my money

Screen name is Moe207,  we have not played each other on cash tables but we have been at the same table in one of the bigger reward freerolls.  He didnt slow play his hand he slowrolled me on river when I was allin trying to rep the flush.  He had the A high flush which was the nuts but yet let time run right down and activated timebank and let that run down before calling.  I knew he was 3 betting light so once the flop came with 2 diamonds my mind was made up that I was going for it.  Turn came diamond and also straightening and he wasnt pot committed so I knew if he was weak I could get a fold but unfortunately my timing was way off.

There are 2 ways of looking at this John!

Yes the player was busy multi-tabling and just waited to act until the last minute, some people do just have the task bar flashing to tell them to act, and auto activate time bank, so he may have been busy with a tough decision on another table and got a last minute warning

Or he deliberately decided to make you sweat thinking he would fold (as most do when running the time bank) knowing he had you beat

But in the end this is online poker and he doesn't have to look you in the eye, or share the venue with you for the rest of the night, the only way to deal with it is to ignore it and move on, if you can't do that he has you beat, after all ask yourself this what's the difference between him slow rolling you and the river killing you? if you let either of them affect your game then you may as well switch off as soon as either happen because you're done for the day

slowrolled once in seven years? hey just hope it's seven years before the next one and enjoy your poker

Sensible advice and I will be better placed to deal with it if it happens again.  Thanks m8.
