Understanding The Showdown

A Showdown occurs automatically when:

  • all players involved in the pot go all-in
  • all betting has been completed on the river


A Showdown will proceed in the following order:

  • the last person to bet will open one's cards first
  • then each person will open one's cards going in a clockwise direction
  • when no betting has occurred, the opening of cards will go in a clockwise direction starting with the small blind
