Please Help! Do I have to show my mucked cards?
Do I have to show my mucked cards?
I was playing in my home poker tourney when this situation occured:
4 players, A, B, C and D were in the pot when player A, acting first bet out after the flop.
Action folded to D who called. Both players checked on the turn.
On the river, A bet and D called. After which, A mucked his cards (declaring D the winner) not wanting the others to know what he had bluffed with.
A slight disagreement broke out from the players who wanted to know A's cards, claiming since he bet first, he should reveal his cards. Whereas A argued that he need not show his cards since he 'surrendered' this game and mucked his cards.
This differs slightly from the all-in scenario. Who is in the right?
