You may be the first to come up with that idea but it counts on your opponent making a huge raise, you having aces, and your opponent making an incorrect fold when he knows your cards.
That sounds right. I trust your math. I will add this to my arsenal as a potential legit move in a cash game. It's not an angle shoot, and I wouldn't feel bad about doing it, in the right situation.
Guy is tanking. "You wanna see my cards? Here ya go, I got aces."
Would be legendary.
