Default weird situation. is there any ethics consideration here?


the gist: i flop the nuts, other guy flops 2nd-nuts. he shows me his cards, essentially to be a nice guy and to let me off the hook.

question: after his gesture of kindness, does anyone NOT try to take his stack?


ok, the more detailed version: i'm playing in a 3-handed 10-20 game at bellagio last night, one guy was a reg, the other a 40-ish y/o swedish guy. swedish guy is enebriated, but not to the point of having lost his faculties. he's playing just fine, not poorly at all. we've been chatting, he gave me his business card, a website where you can buy pieces of tournament players. anyhow, in this hand swedish guy is the sb, i'm bb.

so button folds, swedish guy raises to 100. i have 6c5c, and before i can call, he flashes me the ace of spades. wtf? so i'm like, "what are you doing? you're gonna play your hand with one card exposed? well i DEFINITELY have to call now."

so i call, and the flop comes 432r. oooook. he bets 200, i go, "well, the best you can have is one-pair. unless you flopped a wheel," and raise to 600. he then reraises 1500 on top, with about 2800 behind (i cover). i take about 10 secs deciding whether to smoothcall or push right there, and just as i'm about to say, "i'm all-in," he shows me his other card, the 5! W T F ?

i'm gonna stop right there and not tell just yet what happened after that point. what would YOU do in my spot? basically the guy was saying, with his actions although not with words: i've got you crushed, save your money. i can trap you but i'm not gonna do that. do you have ANY inclination to cut the guy a break? since he tried to give YOU a break FIRST? or do you take his money?

Pretend that you missaw his hand and tell him that you can't believe he's reraising you with A-4 and showing his cards, and then push all in.

so it's not enough just to stack him after he tries to save you money, you actually want to do so by deceiving him further? ok, you're a real winner.

beat you to your edit. true colors, sir.
