A, B, and C are in the hand. B and C both cover A. A goes all in, and is called by both B and C. A mistakenly believes only one opponent called, and showed his cards believing it was a showdown. There are still cards to come. Players B and C can still bet against each other.
No more actual betting occurred in the hand, and A ended up splitting the pot with C. B argues that A exposing cards influenced action in a multiway pot, and therefore should receive a penalty of some sort. No penalty was enforced.
Does B have a case here? What is the proper ruling?
