      If I go all in heads up and my opponent starts asking questions to get information from me before he calls me like 'have you matched the top card on the table?' and I actually did match it. If i answer 'yes I did' is it true that I loose the hand since I said the truth? Or I can actually say or answer anything I like? I had this experience recently at a casino and my opponent brought up this cause i won and no one seemed to know if he was right or wrong. i still came first and took the 1st price but I just want to be sure about it for next time.
      Thanks
      David

      This rules depend from casino to casino and from tournament for tournament. Normally, you dont have the right to share any information about your holecards, as giving such information can be seen as colluding. One similar example was seen ,performed by a top pro in the recent WSOP - the player checked behind his royal flush on the river(he forgot his J was :heart:) ,and its forbidden to check behind the absolute nuts on the river, as this clearly helps the other player.
      My personal advice, simply dont talk during a hand. Just dont.

      Showing your hand to someone is illegal, even if that guy has folded (I think this was implemented as a general rule earlier this year). It will then be folded.

      I have never heard of it being illegal to tell anyone your hand. If you can't verbally bluff or try and influence a decision, then I wouldn't play live poker.

      As a side note: I dislike pokerstars rule. No chatting while a player is all in.

      I would give him a crazy eye and say "I just remember now I haven't looked at my cards"... he's going broke for sure

      I played in Grand Cayman in Februaury, and a guy was made to fold his hand on the turn, because he never looked at them. It happened to a pro a few weeks back aswell (not sure what tourney). Pretty dumb rule imo.

      Thanks for your replies.
      And does anyone know where I can keep myself informed and updated regarding Poker(Texas Hold'em) rules??

      Any good up-to-date sites I can look into?
