Brief description of how to show hole cards after a hand in Poker Stars
A player must show all cards in the hand face-up on the table to win any part of the pot. Cards speak (cards read for themselves).
Straight – Five cards in sequence, but not all of the same suit is a straight. An example is 9♥, 8♣, 7♠, 6♦, 5♥. Three of a Kind – This combination contains three cards of the same rank, and the other two cards each of a different rank, such as three jacks, a seven, and a four.
In any case, after the first person shows, the onus to show (or muck) proceeds clockwise around the table. The most common rulebook used is Robert's Rules of Poker. Chapter 3, THE SHOWDOWN Section, rule 8 lists: If everyone checks (or is all-in) on the final betting round, the player who acted first is the first to show the hand.
