"I'm Declaring War on You, Buddy"

mnuwwarah • Level 16: 2,000-4,000, 500 ante
Zo Karim

Brandon Cantu raised to 9,000 under the gun, and Zo Karim gave him action on the button. Karim called 9,500 on the {q-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds}{8-Clubs} flop. Both players checked the {j-Clubs} and {k-Hearts}, and Cantu moved to muck his hand, holding his cards over the felt. Karim asked him if he was going to show, but Cantu just indicated he couldn't win. Karim still waited, asking Cantu to show.

"I don't want to," Cantu said. "I can't win."

Finally, Karim turned over {3-Hearts}{3-Diamonds} and Cantu dropped his cards. Karim asked for clarification of the rules and was told he had to show his hand regardless to win the pot.

"I want him to show first next time," Karim said.

"I'm declaring war on you, buddy," Cantu said. "Just so you know."
