    Default Dumb question - what is this function?

    Sometimes the opponents hands are shown to me after a hand is over. Usually after they muck. How does the program know what they had? What's going on with that?

    Did i purchase a super secret edition that allows this xray vision after the hand?

    It's normal

    You only get to see the holecards of opponents who go to showdown on the river. Suppose someone bets on the river - anyone still in who then folds will not have their holecards shown

    HM gets the information from the site HH's imported to your HDD
    If you look at a HH in your archive folder you will see that the opponents cards aren't named for anyone who doesn't go to showdown

    EXCEPTION:

    A player can choose to show his cards of course even if everyone folds to him

    Also live & online are not the same

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Showdown_%28poker%29

    One reason for the automatic online showing of hands that go to showdown is to tackle collusion between 2 players who bet up a pot to catch a 3rd player
    It's going to be obvious this is going on if cards are shown & one of the players is forever going to showdown in 3-way pots with rags & his buddy is always involved in these type of pots

    I'm not sure if I explained that well

    thanks, makes sense. I think I actually do recall being able to see the opponents hands WITHOUT holdemmanager if you clicked the previous hand function... forgot about that

    check, i check, button bets, fold, i fold, button wins... then it shows me j9 on the button? how does his hand get shown if we dont even go to turn?

    The only way this would happen if the button showed hes cards, Holdem Manager only reads from the hand histories that the poker sites creates so you'll find if you look at their hand history its actually shown there.
