Personally, I never show my cards. But there are situations where you probably should. For instance, if you feel as though someone’s about to go on tilt, you could reveal your 7-3 off-suit bluff and it’ll probably send them overboard. You definitely shouldn’t do it too much though. If you show your bluffs every time, it doesn’t take a genius to realise that when you don’t show, you have a hand.

Posted by B1gfoot: 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.

Sometimes i show a hand especially when i want to people think i only raised them with good hands so they won't check myself. That's weird cause when someone else show i check him nearly in next hand cause i know he show for that... but it's working for me... so... And sometimes i show a bluff but only if i am big stack against the smaller and i want him to think i can easy bluff him because of that in next hands i can get the rid of him with a decent hand.

I agree with mosts of you guys, you shouldn´t be showing off with your cards after example a good bluff just muck your cards nicely back in the deck. But there are times when it is posible thet you can occur to your opponents play by showing one hand and pissing he´s ass off ! But those are some rare situations where you can do that.

It will depend on what kind of table you are in. If you are in a table of maniacs, there's little need to show your cards since they'll be calling whatever it is you have. If you are on a tight table tho showing your bluffs so that they would start calling your strong hands
