Is it ever a good idea to show your cards??  0   
Hey everyone i just wanted to get your opinion on this. i know alot of ppl are going to say its NEVER a good idea because u dont want to give away any information to your opponets ever, BUTTT i think showing a nice bluff once and a while is nice especailly if u think ur opponet will tillt .
I also think showing cards that might throw ppl off about how ur playing could help, like if u played a hand weird and want them to think that ur some what of a 'DONK' .

let me know what u think, im sure there will be many different answers

Never show a bluff, it gives away info.
The only time I tend to show, and TBH im on auto fold, is when iv bluffed a few and starting to piss PPL off so ill show a strong hand.
You show a bluff best make sure you dont do it again.

i think that sometime is good but you have to choose your moment and i think that is better when you are playing live.
but never show a card during a hand !! like some pros do sometime Thumbs Down Thumbs Down

I occassionally show a bluff, but once i've shown the bluff i don't play anymore bluffs until i have a really strong hand. Showing your bluff can sometimes make people a little more likely to call when they have a slightly weak hand. This doesn't work on pros though.

very rarely show...only time is when you have been playing with same person for a while and want to piss them off by showing a bluff or a low card that puts them on tilt. Only every do it if you feel you will benefit. never just show for the sake of it

I played a sit and go about a month ago, i showed every single hand i played. I won the sit and go Smile This is not a good idea though, i was just doing it for fun. I showed all bluffs and all good hands. I don't think the other player knew what to do lol.

Oh and by the way, i votd NO on the Poll, it's usually always a bad idea to show your hand Smile Unless you're plaing with people you know and it's just for fun Smile Or unless it's a royal flush

there are moments which might be okay...
If you raise to often pre flop and they got angry and you raise a real good hand like aces you might show to prove you are nit just stealing.

Totally! I never show bluff, but show a strong hand when people are getting pissed and they will put you on a hot streak.

generally i don't show my cards, but there are moments when i believe it could be beneficial...
for example you see a player on a loosing streak and you pull a big bluff on him - in this situation showing a bluff is likely to tilt him which could benefit your game...
or pull a few bluffs, then let them catch you on a small pot, then bluff once again and show it, and immediately switch your game style...
so, it depends on situation - like many other things in poker, but generally - it's a no show Smile

I like to show monsters. If i have quads or straight flushes i will show. My only reasoning is that they happen so infrequently i like to share them. In the same way i like to see others hit quads and straight flushes.

I dont think it ever gives me an edge showing, but at the same time the hands i show are so infrequent im pretty sure i never lose an edge either

online I don't think so...they get to see enough of the hands even if ya muck you can just go in the history and see what was mucked...all these different programs people use to keep track of hands they already have enough info Aww crap!

я не показываю свои карты,потому что это источник информации для соперников.
Кто хочет увидеть мои карты - должен это оплатить.

I don't really agree about "never show a bluff" I think in online poker a bluff can be shown but very rarely I mean max 2 times during a tournament with at least 50 entrants IMO as it'll pay off in the future if you're someone who bluff very rarely... I did show a bluff recently and I got called on the river with my monsters and the guy had only middle pair.

I always muck my cards cause I'm not sure what benefits I can have from showing so my rule is:
when in doubt muck.

I never show my cards. I want to make my opponents think about my hand and my play.I don't want to give them easy information.
