    I like the speech play Patrick

    Here's a piece of cunning play I like to use. It's nothing spectacular, and only works on self dealt games against certain players. But if you've limped in and want to see a cheap flop, and it gets to the big blind, who is one of those players that needs prompting - I'll sometimes say something like "it's upto you to check" or "you checking, yeah?". Rather than "check or BET". Do not put the word bet into their mind. It works - promise. As I said though, nothing spectacular.

    Have you tried "It's up to you to raise," when you have a monster?

    Nice. But I think "check or bet" with an emphasis on bet is better. If you say to someone "think of a number between 10 and 50", with more emphasis on the 50, then they'll go higher (90% of the time). This is known as forcing, but I don't want to say much more on this as I might get thrown out of the magic circle .
