Correct. In most rooms you can show your cards to someone that is not still in the hand. It is not a good idea, but it is allowed most places.

That is true, but terrible. Showing cards causes exactly the same problems in cash games as it does in tournaments, and I hate that some rooms think that the integrity of the game is more important in a tournament than it is in a cash game.

But this still still slows down the game, looks collusive, and can result in such things as spontaneous advice being given.

Re: Showing cards to a friend

Hmmm, no wonder I've been confused about it... so do cash games have an official rule set such as the TDA rule set?

I've never heard of someone getting an orbit penalty in a cash game

For cash the most common rules are Robert’s Rules of Poker. But ev n rooms based on these will usually have some room specific rules. These are widely available on line.

Re: Showing cards to a friend

The TDA rule is good, though stricter than I would be in one respect.

I have no objection to "sweating". If you want to show hands to a spectator and discuss them later, that's fine with me. That's how people learn how to play better poker.

But you should never show cards to any player at the table except if you show them to the whole table, and you should never show them to the whole table unless you are last to act with no more betting remaining and are folding or mucking, or perhaps in the heads-up situation where you are trying to get a read on your opponent (and I am not a fan of that either).
