Do you hide your cards and or your chips with your hands?

If so why?

Hide?

Intentionally hiding would be grounds for a warning and then a penalty.

I think I know what he's talking about, and if so it's annoying as f*ck. Players that leave their hands over their hole cards, and then leave their hands in the same position after they've folded so it's hard to tell if they still have cards or not.

I haven't experienced the intentional hiding of chips myself but have heard of it.

I play in a game where one of the players puts his cards behind his chips between the chips and the rail. I never know if he's still in a hand as I can't plainly see his cards. I've told him on multiple occasions that it's not a good idea but he continues to do it.

I tend to look at my cards, try to commit them to memory (I drink at the table so this gets less and less effective as the night goes on) then put my card protector on them and leave them there. I fold my hands behind my chips or sit on them (yes) so I don't give off any tells as I tend to do a lot of movement with my hands.

Thanks Jaywa,   That is exactly what I was trying to say.

Being the designated dealer in our home game it gets to be very frustrating trying to figure who is in and  who is out.  Sadly to say it is the same people most off the time.

Never heard of a penalty or a warning called in a home game.  I called the clock on a guy once and he got very mad.  He watches the clock and plays slow so the short stacks have to pay bigger blinds. (he always folds too)

Not worth the arguments for the little amount of money we play for.

What rule set do you use for your games?

From RR:

Quote
18. Players must keep their cards in full view. This means above table-level and not past the edge of the table. The cards should not be covered by the hands in a manner to completely conceal them.

19. Any player is entitled to a clear view of an opponent’s chips. Higher denomination chips should be easily visible.

I've had that thought in the past but the problem is that you'll end up losing players down the road. For a player if I know that getting a low stack will result in this one player slow playing every decision will make it so I don't really feel like playing. Just be careful with that. Whatever your stakes they mean different things to different people.

I once had a player place his hole cards in his shirt pocket. I told him that his cards would play but that he could never do that again and that a casino would rule his hand dead. You gotta let players know what might happen in a strict non-home game.

Good luck, nutn
