This is a discussion on Do you usually show your cards ? within the online poker forums, in the General Poker section; Hi everyone.
Do you usually show the cards before returning them to the deck? I have read that sometimes it can be a good strategy to
I usually play multible tables online, and I don’t want to be bothered by more clicks and decisions, than I need to. So I set up the software to always automatically muck my cards. I also don’t think, there are any real advantages to show cards online. I think, you are mostly just giving away free information.
I usually don't show my cards because it gives my opponents too much information. I sometimes make exceptions when I play against someone I like and I don't want to demoralize. I show him the max games to reassure him and show him that he made the right decision.
Most say that it is not necessary to show, and I believe that this is the situation. Sometimes I like to annoy my opponent by going all-in with 7 2. If I have this problem with self-control then it will only be profitable for me. But be careful, overall I agree that cards do not need to be shown
I almost never show my cards, giving free information to other players is bad for your game. If you play against decent players then they can use against you, they can cache read on your way of playing. I show my cards only when I want to accomplish something with them, or to show respect to other player.
I guess it depends on the situation, I play a lot of cash games and have found that other players figure out pretty quickly that I play Tight/Aggressive, hence most times even a small raise preflop will get most to fold, hence in this situ I will pick a time and position to bluff with garbage and if I get to river I show, it helps remove my tight image and leads to bigger pots later on. Of course it also can backfire...
greetings from the European part of Russia, the homeland of Lenin Ulyanovsk ... I rarely but practice such tactics with new players always works showing strong hands they think you are just fooling around and you are bluffing and picking up a bank. I’ve usually been sober a couple of times when
When the game ends, the king and pawn fall into one box...
Nope and never do it
First you show your game for free Nothing to gain
Second i think it a disrespect for the other player
If you are bluffing its bad
If your are winning also is bad
So keep it for you
I never, ever, show my cards. Some folks have said they like to show a bluff that worked but I can't see the advantage in doing that. All you're really doing is showing off and, of course, providing information to the other players. I read one comment about doing it to put a player on tilt. Not sure I would like someone on tilt at my table. If I get a decent hand I'm folding to the angry shove, I would rather have a chance to play the hand.
Rarely, but if the button keeps attacking my blind I will show the 72 and 63 and 25 so he doesn't think I'm a tight ass. Also if I get a rush of hands I may show a few so I don't get shoved in a situation I don't want to get shoved reflow, or checkraise all in with a worse hand on the flop. If u raise reflow 6 hands in a row and bet the flop nobody believes you.
