I think I'm being slow-played

I dunno where to post this. Just frustrated that I'm being slow-played. I played the same guy a couple times. He beat me the first time, then I beat him 4 times in a row, and I'm winning my 5th game (It's a torturer game, and he went treasure map, and I'm playing 4 torturers a turn). Then again, maybe goko crashed. It hasn't said he has connection problems.

Just annoyed. Plus I want to go to bed, but I can't just resign. I have to out stubborn him.

Yep, he's taking as long as possible to play. I got music and scotch, so I can out last him.

Sorry to hear that, but this is completely the wrong board to be posting this. Try http://forum.dominionstrategy.com/index.php?board=28.0, or more specifically, this post http://forum.dominionstrategy.com/index.php?topic=9806.0.

Haha. Ok. Well maybe it can be moved? It doesn't really matter. Just annoyed at this guy.

Good luck, man! There's a whol lot of respect waiting for you if you outlast him. I wish you the best.

I have been forced to accept that lackluster play is a town tell for you.

Is this similar to the slow roll in poker?  I love doing that to my opponent and taking all their $$ ;D

Generally the slow-roller is the guy who knows he is losing and he is hoping he can annoy you to the point you will resign thus giving him the win.  So it is diametrically opposite of the slow-roller in poker.

Well he did it for some more Torturer plays, but I told him that I had music and a drink. I'd like to think that's why he quit, but maybe he just wasn't ready to wait it out for an hour while I clearly was. It takes a lot more work to slow-play than it does it sit back, read a book or listen to music. Funny thing is he wasn't doing badly. He already had 3 Provinces because he connected his TMs early, so he wouldn't even have lost by that much. He just did the classic "discard your hand to every Torturer and get annoyed" thing.

My auto match found him again after, which made me change my parameters to exclude him from it's finding range.

It's not. It should be in Dominion Online.
