If someone did this to me and didn't have the nuts, I either bet big or go all-in; pretty tough to call in this situation when I bet knowing his cards.

But he's going to suspect a bluff when you make a huge bet after you've seen his cards.

True, but as in anything in poker it depends on the situation, your opponent and your opponent's perception of you.

In my game it'd be a penalty. My penalties are escalating:

1) Warning
2) 10 min blind out
3) 20 min blind out
4) Disqualification

Even accidentally opening your hand while mucking gets a penalty.

Are you saying you impose a penalty for mucking face-up when there is no further action? Or just when there is still action?

imposing a penalty in this situation is rather asinine. the player usually is only hurting themselves, and I've heard of some pros doing this simply to get a read. if you expose prematurely, the other player can still act. it gives them a great opportunity to use some good strategy

Then change TDA rules in your tournaments, or go to the TDA forums and get them to change it. It's preferable to killing the exposed hand.

The person is not only hurting themselves in tournament play (unles down to two players) exposing your hand can effect every other player.
