re: Poker & Asking a question regarding not ship all your chips but left 1big blind.
It is possible for it to play out as you said.. But most likely, if you leave yourself with 1 BB, on the flop, turn, or river, 99% of the time, your opponent will put you all in... So you will end up having to show, unless you lose the hand, in which case you don't HAVE to show, but it will be irrelevant, as you will be bust. Not sure I'm big on your idea, as it's basically an "angle" on trying to not have to show.... But if you think about it, is not showing, and losing 99% of your stack worth it?? Basically to keep 1 BB?? You are aware you will then need to double/triple up, multiple times, to just get back into contention? I could be misunderstanding what you have written, but it just seems ass backwards to me.
