We have a league where we play live and deal ourselves when it’s our urn. In this case the dealer called the single all-in and the single turned his cards over. He asked the dealer to turn his face up and the dealer declined, claiming the need to show his cards only if he won the pot. Spirits flew and many opinions were heard.
I always took comfort that in hold’em all contingencies were covered by rules, since the vagaries of the game are so tough, but is this situation a matter of rule, or house custom, or table agreement …and shouldn’t it be covered by an elegant and exact regulation? I appreciate your thoughts.
