This question All in player mucks hand before runout was recently posted regarding mucking a hand before the river in an all-in situation.

I started to answer it but then noticed there are several other similar questions, only one of which has an accepted answer.

Mucking a winning hand (1) has an accepted answer, but it doesn't fully cover tournament vs cash game rulings.

Other questions include:

Should they all be marked as dupes of (1), possibly with an edit to the accepted answer?

I gave them a quick read. The actions in the hands/questions presented are obviously very similar, though with the added narrative can appear different. This might add a little nuance to the situation so I'm not particularly inclined to close/consolidate any of them right now. I suppose from a technical perspective, and if someone gave a thorough answer, you could certainly consolidate at least two of these questions. That said, people find this site in a whole lot of different ways; One persons keyword trash are another's keyword gold!

I don't think we're in dire need of consolidating the questions & answers just yet but I can wholeheartedly see your point Herb. What would be your preferred option?

    When I posted this, I thought that there should be one question selected as the dupe target, but the more I think about it, the more I agree they should be left alone, at least for now.
