is this ethical? even in casino?
there is zero wrong w this. Is he supposed to tell you the truth? LOL.
The most extreme example I've ever seen of this was about 3 years ago. (I actually went to another forum and found the hand discussion thread so I can copy and paste it)
Player 1 raises to $50 and player 2 calls... HU.
Flop comes 7
Player 1 bets $80 and player 2 calls.
Turn comes A
Player 1 mutters under his breath that player 2 has been chasing him down all night and he has two pair .... he bets $225. Player 2 semi hears him and says "what? You have two pair?" Player 1 replies "you've been chasing me down all night, I'll show it to you". Player 2 doesn't seem convinced and asks "you have Ace King?" Player two gives a half frown and nods his head.... after a delay player 1 calls.
River comes A
and player 1 shrugs his shoulders and turns his hand up (in the "well what can i do" manner) immediately moves all in for $900
Player 2 asks for a count and begins the dialog. "You have Ace King?" "Yes....I'll show you" Player 2 asks him to show him one card then, and player 1 replies "ill show you both after you fold, I promise I have you beat."
At this point Im convinced this is an obvious bluff...like on the turn sure it might make some sense (he doesnt want to be drawn out on) but on the river, you have the nuts and youre telling him your hand and telling him to fold.....uhhhhh?? But then I get thrown off with the next bit...
"On my kids, I swear I got it"
(Hmm... maybe this guy legitimately doesnt wanna take the guys money?)
Player 2 thinks more and again asks him to show one card and he again replies, "On My Kids, I swear, I got it" Player 2 asks "Ace King?" Player one replies "Yea". Player 2 says so show me one....player 1 doesnt and says "I'll show both when you fold......"
Finally after a delay player 2 says ok....because you said on your kids Im gunna lay this down. Player 1 says thank you.
(This has to be a bluff....but would he really say all this???)
Player 2 mucks and player one goes to muck also...
"Hey I thought youd show!"
Player 1 slowly and begrudgingly turns over Qd 8d.
The table erupts with chatter and laughter and comments
Player 2 tells
him that he's going to hell
Player 1 has a mental breakdown and leaves the table for 20 minutes, comes back like hes been shot in the heart twice and slowly picks up his chips telling the dealer "I cant play another hand"
Another player asks him if he even has kids? The table cracks up and player 1 sadly says yes. Player 2 tells him hes going to hell again. Player 1 sadly nods and says I know....
