If some one asks me
the hand, I simply ignore them. I realize this can be awkward for some people and it actually took me a little while to feel comfortable doing it, but you just have to suck it up. Besides most opponents understand and don't take offense.

If they ask after the hand is over, I politely tell them that's "its nothing personal but I just don't tell anyone my hands" or I some sometimes add up the total bets that they didn't call and ask them for that amount of money for the information. But I don't really say this anymore.

I hate turning of my cards and will muck every chance that I get. If i can, always make my opponent show first and muck my cards if i am beat. Lol some people actually get mad me when I do this and say I'm "slow rolling." I'm not, and when they get mad, it only tells me how inexperienced and awful they are.

Re: How do you reply to Will You Show If I fold?

I cheerfully say, "Nope!" in every case. Occasionally I'll throw in a "Gotta pay to see the show."

If it wasn't likely to get me insta-banned, I'd love to pull this one.

Re: How do you reply to Will You Show If I fold?

Another viable option if theyre right beside you is to turn to them,nose to nose and give them the "Dumb and Dumber" annoying noise scream.

(that one might get you banned though.)

I say, "If you turn your hand face-up right now, I'll tell you if you're beat."

My line in response to the question: "If you fold, I'll show you one card. If you call, I'll show you both."

Best answer. Don't say or do anything to give away any info at all. Some people may think that they are smart enough to say the correct thing, but unknowingly may give off a tell anyways.

Re: How do you reply to Will You Show If I fold?

if im bluffing I say yes. yields a fold quite often. if I have the nuts, I say no and that gets calls out of curiosity. if it happens twice in the session, ill either say nothing at all regardless of holdings, or ill get fancy and say no if im bluffing.

to sum it up, cause it usually happens only once a session, yes if bluffing, no if nuts

"If I show, can I have your hat?" If they say yes, say "Then absolutely". If they say no, angrily call clock.

Re: How do you reply to Will You Show If I fold?

I think staying silent is the best way to go. It's the lesser of the evils.

However, I do think it's wise to keep the people at your table happy. For this reason I think that each situation is different, and sometimes it would be better to say something then nothing at all.

For example, if you have been sitting at the table for a while and villain had been drinking and having a good time it might be smarter to keep villain happy so they stay at the table and spread more money around. Just be nice.

However, when in doubt, I think it is hands down just shutup and say nothing that will get you the best LONG TERM results.
