Now you determine to "slow play" your side and try to draw a bet from somebody which has a superior pair who will like this flop, so you simply check.

Both of you held the poker nuts at 1 level in the casino game but failed to realise that the poker nuts – along with your fortunes – in Texas hold’em can change entirely with one turn of the card.
