Rabbit Hunt

  1. Verb

    In a shared card game, to ask to see the remaining community cards when a hand ends before they are dealt.

    ADDITIONAL INFORMATION: For example: In a game of pot limit Omaha, one player quickly makes a pot-sized bet after the flop is revealed. The remaining players fold. If any player asked that the turn and river be shown, making that request is considered rabbit hunting.

    EXAMPLE: "I like to rabbit hunt a lot when I'm at a table with tight players, but I don't do it often if players are staying in a lot. If people are too loose, showing them that they made a good fold can only encourage them to fold more often, but if you think someone may have folded a good hand, showing them the mistake can frustrate them into calling more often."

    APPLIES TO: Online and Land-based Venues

    GAME CATEGORY: Shared Card Games

    SYNONYMS: Fox Hunt, Hunt, Rabbit

    RELATED TERMS: Community Cards, Flop, River, Turn
