Default Ways I cheat, but not really

When I play home games with my friends, I sometimes do stupid little tricks for information.

For example, I have nothing but I am at the river against one opponent. I know the only way I can win is by betting, so I start to say "Let's see, I have $500, $1000, $2000..." and I keep counting until the guy says "fold".

Then other times, I'll get raised all in and I'll show my cards. There have been times where my friends say "Oh man, I only have a pair of fives" and then I call.

Today though, I had TT and I raised PF. Opponent (loose maniac) calls. Flop comes Q94 and he raises all in. I think for awhile about how he's bluffed me off many heads up pots by raising all in with bottom pair or a straight/flush draw, and I turn over my TT without saying anything.

My one friend laughed at his reaction and I called. I kinda sensed it too, but I'm no Phil Ivey, I could have just been guessing.. Anyways, He had 9T and I won.

Turning over your cards in a home game is not cheating. It is part of homegame poker.

Just wait till you come up against those I've recently read about.

Hero push all-in, Loser started the motion to fold, Hero go phew, Loser take cards back and call thinking his trick worked again. Hero turn over nuts and win.

This is leading a bet and is not allowed. I like the other tricks especially the last one..."phew"

You have pretty loose home game rules, that kinda stuff wouldn't usually be allowed. Also, do said friends have accounts on any sites, and if so what are their names?

Every home game I ahve ever played in allows you to flip up your cards when deciding to call an AI or not. That being said every homegame is different. I love flipping up a strong hand it is hard for someone not to give there hand strengh away.

I don't know, generally the rule of thumb in home games that I've played is that exposed cards go to the muck regardless.

..the 1st one is also a no-no in the same home games, when you declare a number in the ones I've played, that's the bet/raise.

You guys can play whatever game you'd like at your home game. I'll be somewhere else, playing poker.

Are you talking about a MTT? I have never played in a home cash game were you couldnt turn up your cards when you are thinking about calling an AI. Doyle talks about this in supersystem, that stupid show on E with the unibomber hosting home games allowed it. Agian all house rules are different, but I love flipping up my cards to get info.

Yeah, I was talking about a MTT, home cash games are more lenient on whatever you're doing
