A Slowpoke’s Guide to Showing Your Hand

If you’re looking for a simple and surefire way to show your cards (for better or worse), then you’ve come to the right place. We’ve got a foolproof guide for the slowpokes out there who need a little help in showing their hands. Don’t worry if you don’t have time to show your hand the conventional way – we’ve got it covered.

Slowpoke Steps to Showcards

Step one: Make a cup of coffee. Not just any cup of coffee, but the kind of coffee that will take at least twenty minutes to make. This way, when your opponent is finished dealing, you can leisurely sip your coffee while the rest of the players anxiously wait for you to show your cards.

Step two: Take a phone call. This is when you take your sweet time to answer your phone, pause your conversation every now and then to check your cards, and make sure your opponent knows that you’re still considering your move.

Step three: Take a bathroom break. This is the quintessential move of the slowpoke. Just casually excuse yourself for a few extra minutes as you take your time in the bathroom. And don’t forget to take your cards with you!

Ain’t Nobody Got Time for That

For the slowpokes who don’t have the time (or the patience) to go through the motions of showing their hand, you’ve still got options. Step four: casually drop your cards on the table. Just let your cards slide out of your hands and onto the table. Your opponent will instantly know that you’re showing your hand.

Step five: casually mention your cards. This is when you just casually and nonchalantly mention what kind of cards you have. This can be done in the span of a few seconds – no need to draw out the suspense.

Step six: make it obvious. This is the last resort. For those who are in a rush to show their cards, you can make it obvious by literally standing up and pointing in your cards. This may be a little over-the-top, but hey, at least everyone will know what you have.

So there you have it, our foolproof slowpoke’s guide to showing your hand. Whether you choose to take your sweet time or speed it up, just remember to be courteous and keep the game moving. After all, nobody has time to wait for you to show your cards!
