Can a Player show his cards when heads up against an all in to get a reaction?
Question by DVD King: Can a Player show his cards when heads up against an all in to get a reaction?
Can a player say what he has or show his cards when heads up against someone who has just gone all in to get a reaction otu of him. I remember jamie gold in the 06 tourney doing stuf like this a lot and not being penalized for it. Is this becuase no one called the director on him….or is it legal to do either one. If it isn;t what is the penalty time wise and also does the hand then have to be folded automatically…is cash game different then tournament as well
So I am a hold em player, and understand the point of turning cards over when play is dead to see who wins. But what I mean is the table has folded to only two players. The river card comes, and the first person to act goes all in. The second player, then flips his cards over to see if he can get a read off of the first player.
Is this allowed, is there penalty, is it an automatic fold? What happens with this?

you can turn your cards over anytime you want to show them to people at the table. The whole point of poker is to bluff to win a hand when you have bad cards, and to get the other guy to bet a lot when you have great cards. Showing your cards to someone takes away your advantage. Players will flip their cards after someone is all in because no more betting will take place at that point.
