The WSOP Champion's View of Slowrollers...

This was posted on twoplustwo a couple of months ago and is Greg Raymer's idea of slowrollers:

"Every poker player I've ever run into who regularly pulls stunts like this is a weak and losing player who can't learn how to play well, so he tries to learn how to win with infantile tricks and ploys. These are the moves of a loser, and I've yet to see an exception. So, if you wish to be in that class of players, by all means, continue the BS."

I only know one player who regularly slowrolls and that is Mr Popularity himself, Mr Jac Arama.

Now, does Greg's description fit Jac?

Happy New Year to all the crew! (except Miros - you miserable bastard!)

The only time I heard Lionel slowroll was in hand against Jim Miller.

And for that he deserves a medal, not abuse!

Ahhh, yes, the Jim Miller incident was pure poetry. And then DY put the boot in by insisting on a massage from Jim's missus. Perfect. -JQ

About the massage:

What evidence is there that it was his wife? Did either of them say that they were married? Not while I was there.

She happily did give me the massage and appreciated that I wanted it hard and not 'fluffy' as she put it.

ah yes, the Miller slowroll, the highlight perhaps of my poker career, in fact i named it as such when asked by one poker site for my major poker accomplishment. Salad days indeed.
p.s. don't try this at home kids

For those that haven't known of this great moment in slowrolling, can someone care to post what exactly happened?

DY wanted it hard, not fluffy - classic. I'd forgotten that.

I can't claim to be an eye-witness but all reports agree that Jim Miller was acting like a c**t in a No Limit cash game in the Nugget, so Lionel slow-rolled him with top set. That's about it really.

If you do need any more corroboration I saw more than one person buy Lionel a drink the next day in honour of the slowroll.

My memory of the night is different. I had no idea who he was. To be fair, I still have no idea.

He barely said a word all night. Some woman, who Vicky seemed to think was his wife, was massaging his back for ages. I asked to go next on the list and she did me later.

Was she his wife? Does it matter? I got the massage anyway and that's the important thing.

Miller: "Top two pairs...Aces and Queens"

Lionel Hutz: "(tapping the table having just called for his whole stack) Nice Hand sir!"

Lionel Hutz: "(As our good friend Jim (the ex Navy Seal professional assassin) starts to rake in the pot) Oh hold on a second...I seem to have trip Aces!"

If that was Jim's missus - I'm a dutchman! For $50 bucks, she'll clean your room!
