Definition of Slowroll


What is meant by the term "slowroll"?

If you slowroll someone, then this means that you take an incredibly long period of time (usually the full amount that you are allowed to take) to call when your opponent is already all-in, you have the stone cold nuts and there is nobody let to act.

Meaning, you can't lose the hand under ANY circumstances, there is nobody left to act in the hand (meaning, you don't need to act like you don't have a very strong hand as there is no point), yet you still take you sweet time in making the call.

Slowrolling someone is incredibly bad poker etiquette, so you better have a really good reason for doing so (like your opponent is an ex-friend who slept with your wife).

Example of a slowroll:

With the board reading A-A-2-2-7, your opponent pushes all of his chips into the middle of the table. You are heads-up in the hand.

You hold A-A for Quads and the stone cold nuts. You can not lose this hand, no matter what your opponent is holding.

Despite the fact that you have the stone cold nuts, you take your time and pretend like you are making a very hard decision.

Eventually you reluctantly (at least, that is what you are acting like) push your chips into the middle of the table and make the call.

Your opponent has absolutely nothing, and you defiantly turn over your pocket Aces. Usually a slowroll is accompanied by a comment such as "I told you that you shouldn't mess with me", or "many have tried, many have died".

This is a slowroll.
