I’m sure that many off you on Replay Poker have notice the inordinate amount of players who show there cards at every opportunity even when everyone has folded preflop. Sadly, a few players mistakenly think it is a courtesy to show there cards, while most do it to give the illusion (in there mind only) that there are great players, when in fact they are nothing more than annoying braggers.
Those of us who play regular cash games Poker will know that it is extremely rare for players to show there cards. On the rare occasion that a player does show his or her cards it usually is a strategic move to show a bluff with the goal of being called later in the game with a much stronger hand. To all the braggers on Replay Poker I leave you with these words of wisdom.
The game of Poker is a game of skill and respect and while it takes no skill to show cards it does show fellow players a lot of respect when you don’t.
Show respect not cards!
