Ok. So I am bored at work and I only have a week left. I also have been playing way too much Poker to try and drown my stress out and have alot of questions. I have invented a move that I would like to run by people. I say I invented this because I have a huge Ego. Either that or it is so stupid that nobody else would want to invent it. Here is what I like to call "The Move". If I have a 4-flush to the NUTS and the board is checked around to me no matter what my position or cards I bet the pot. Why? Here is what I have found. I have had one of two results every time. First result is everyone folds and I win the pot. Why? Because nobody likes chasing overs on a flush board. The second and much more rewarding result is a disguised monster. I can then check the turn if I make my flush and baby flushes or people who like to bluff (hey, I heard that!) will throw a huge bet out. Trying to scare me out or win the pot right away. Even people who hit an overpair will bet into me. It rocks! I had several situations where I was paid out HUGE sums of money when making my nut flush because people put me on TPTK. Anyone like this move?

I pull this move all the time... bet your draw on the flop, if it hits, check the turn to show you're scared of whatever draw hit, and let someone else take a shot at it.

Also do this when I flop trips. Throw out a bet, get a bunch of non-believers to call. Check the turn and let one of them catch their overcard and feel confident enough to come out betting. Of course, they could catch their flush/straight draw, so unless you fill the boat, you've just given a free card to screw yourself.

But hey, that's why it's gamb00ling, right?

I tend to be a conservative player, but I'll do things like that when I have the chip lead or when I want to have a little fun. :)

What do you do if check-raised?

If I get raised on the flop even with TPTK I really need to decide if I want to fold or not, so I pretent I have TPTK, think a little, and fold.

This move works better with position also because you can check behind on the turn if you want to, or fire out another bet and try and take it.

I do this all the time, more so in short games (<6 players). If you have nut flush draw on the flop, you have 2 cards to get 1 more of your suit. Even if other people are drawing to that suit, you'll still have a high probability of winning. The only time I slow down would be when the board pairs up. Then you have to worry about a full house potential
