Default Unethical?

Last night at my home game, a player announced he was all-in in the dark, and another player called. When it came time to flip the cards, the initial raiser showed K-K and admitted that he had looked at his cards before going all-in, while the caller unhappily turned over K-J. Is this unethical or is it in the same vein as bluffing?

It's a jerk move, but as far as I know it's not illegal. Was the initial raiser shortstacked or just that big of a jerk?

It's just lying. "Unethical" but definitely part of the game.

I don't know that there's any rule against it, but its definitely angleshooting and I'd definitely consider it to be unethical, and if I had the ability to get a player banned from that homegame forever because of it, I would.

Exactly. He thought he was taking advantage of the peeker, and got stung. Greed is a con artists' best friend. Helps him pull people in.
