Playing Zynga poker on my phopne. One thing that gives me grief is that I make it all the way to the River, win the hand, but without getting to see the hole cards from other players who went the distance with me. This happens about half the time when I win. I want to know what the other player had when he raised, as that would tell me something about his betting behavior.

Take the picture below. I had never raised during the series, only checking and calling until the end. I win, but no reveal of what the hole cards from the other two were.

Does Zynga have a bug here by not having everyone reveal their hole cards during the showdown? Or is it implementing a rotation by which each player takes turns turning over his cards (and auto-folding losers)?

    I don't use it, so I can't say for certain, but many sites have an option to auto-muck a losing hand.

I don play there and would suggest you ask there. I would guess though they use a normal order of showdown starting at the last player to bet during the last round of betting. Generally speaking people don't have to show losers unless they make a bet you call.

  • LOL. There's no "asking there".

  • But OP said they never bet during the hand. May 1, 2021 at 2:28

Players don't have to show you their losing hands if they choose to muck said hands. It doesn't just happen on Zynga Poker, but players can choose to muck their losing hand on any platform!
