No limit Texas Holdem, 100/200, 4 players, preflop

player 1 stack - 600, player 2 stack - 700, player 3 stack - 5000, player 4 stack - 3500

First player goes all in for 600 chips

Second player goes all in for 700 chips

Third player calls

Fourth player calls

Should players 1 and 2 show their cards (as there are no actions available for them) or the next betting round will go with all the player cards facing down the table?

    If you need a card that is shown that would effect play.

As long as other active players are in the hand, the cards should be kept face down, so as not to influence the decisions of the other players.
