Poker Etiquette

Postby fairytanes » Fri Oct 08, 2010 2:18 pm

Just to share with you guys poker folks.

It is a bad etiquette to reveal an opponent card when he/she already showing a 'white flag' / mark his cards.

source: http://www.pokercast.tv/1075-the-pokers ... ame-s01e42
at: 24 minute, Tony G forced the dealer to reveal Mercier card, when he says: "You got it" Why do you want to see my hand?"

I was like wtf, he says "it is fair enough".
Is he an alien or something :evil:

i actually disagree and dun think its bad etiquette

the way its done isnt smart thats all

to be smart when mercier says : you got it

ifi were tony g and i wanna see his hand i'll just hold on to my cards and not flip them over since its supposed to be mercier to show first (if they follow the last aggressor rule)

if mercier said "T high" i'll just say A high and not flip my cards

if mercier shows then i show

if he mucks i collect the pot and i muck

- why givce away free information when ur opponent isn't giving u any?

just my 2 cents worth

when he says T high and doesnt mark u can say A high and wait for him to show

if he says T high and auto muck then check with the dealer if its mucked, then wait for the pot to be pushed to u and muck, u dun have to show ur cards

Oh ok. How about in this scenario:

Mercier said 10 high, and Tony G actually has 9 high (but instead he said or lied that he hs Ace high).
Since in this case mercier thought Tony G really has Ace high and has him beat. He marked his card. and Tony G never showed his card since he does not have to reveal (according to your statement , hehe, true?).

So, in this case, what will happen?. (besides being a liar) Tony G has all the chips that does not actually belong to him? true? and the other players cant force him to show his cards right?

So everytime it comes to show cards, i can always say ACE HIGH. if opponent auto marked his card, i can actually choose not to SHOW my cards, correct? and the chips belong to me since he marked his cards first?

Sorry, i just want to understand which one is the correct etiquette. not to argue.
Hope to get your "pro" opinions.

thanks

yup when the guy mucked his cards , you are the only one left in the pot , your hand is the best hand cos no one else has a hand so you take the pot

Well, the rules dictate that the raiser or the person first to act if checked around actually shows his cards, so unless you "act out of turn" like Tony G did, it wouldn't be wrong to wait for Mercier to show.

But once you know you're the winner, insisting anything else is bad etiquette and I agree wholeheartedly on that one.
