Almost never, when a guy is tilting and you just bluffed him out, I might show them just to tilt him some more, especially with tournament, so they go all in faster. But normally in cash games I would never show any of my cards.

Well normally never, might if iv been over aggresive and starting to look like a donk(stealing too many blinds), ill show a nice hand just to reasure them that im gonna win the next showdown, or if I think some one is tilting, ill showa hand to push him/her over the edge
Never ever show a bluff.

Its better to never show your cards, it give so much informations that you could regreat it later.
I beat some players on big pot just cause they show me one time their cards... it helps to make some good read, so never do this !!

There's no reason to show anybody anything. EVER. Tell them whatever you want tho...as long as you don't tell them what you actually had Tongue

I never show when I'm online unless I have quads or better - however, in live games you play fewer hands over a set amount of time so it can help to show good cards to obtain a decent image faster...

When u bluff with small cards, without hand.
Do that once or twice. And then people began think you are fish.
Then If your lucky and once get a very good hand, example KK or AA, then raise and they can now call it as they think he just bluffing. And if you can get 5 people to buy, that tactic, you can have a good win.

why would you want to give your opponents a read on you?

How about if your giving them a false read on you?
Theres nothing wrong in showing cards, you just got to have a good reason and remember what you shown and to who.

thats a good point bigfoot, but i still find it better not to show. every shown hand is one too much in my opinion. i prefer to let them guess.....or pay Smile

I don't show cards very often...why should i? keeping it secret raises my chance to bluff on and on sometimes Smile

I think it doesnt matter. Sometimes i show so my oponents can see i deserved the pot. Other times i would it with 27, so they get mad with me. I do it to disturb my oponents, dont want them to understand with what type of hands i play.

Generally you should not show your cards, but sometimes if you want to create an image you can do this.

This is absolutely the key to showing cards - Knowing exactly what others thinks of you is a big asset when playing poker.

Showing cards to tell people what to think is a great way of establishing a table image. You can then play off that image and trap your opponent cause he thinks he has a good read on you.

Showing cards is such an underused weapon in the poker world and I am happy for it to stay that way. Big Smile

For me though showing cards is just part of my game now.

if youre a shortstack and you plan on making a few moves and dont want to be called it can be good to show trips or something, then you should be able to make a few moves a bit safer, or you can show a bluff if you plan on being tighter and want them to call.

Only when you have monster hands like Royal Flush Evil

Most serious players don't show their cards at all.

Personally I show my cards from time to time while playing SnGs. I do it when the blinds are very high and I make a steal with cards like 25o. It makes the opponents angry and they make hero calls when I have good cards. Smile It all depends on other players at the table but on the lower stakes tables it's a nice trick. Big Smile
