"Show her hand" nghĩa là gì?

'Show one's hand' nghĩa là tiết lộ ý định/kế hoạch của mình, nhất là từ trước đến nay vẫn đang giữ bí mật (to make one's plans, intentions, ideas, or resources known to others, especially those that were previously hidden or kept secret).

Ví dụ
New York's Attorney General Shows His Hand Against Exxon Mobil.

Sky's the limit as Murdoch shows his hand but Comcast is not out of this bidding war yet.

Viewers will either crack a satisfied smile or feel utterly taken for a ride when Shani finally shows his hand as a crafty (lắm mánh khóe, láu cá, xảo quyệt) manipulator (người lôi kéo, vận động (bằng mánh khóe)) of a narrative that’s less linear than we expect.

After the "chaotic" first day of Brett Kavanaugh's Supreme Court nomination hearing, Wednesday saw the 53-year-old appellate judge bombarded with questions from senators. The AP describes him as "treading carefully," and highlights some of the biggest issues raised during the second day of the hearing. Kavanaugh "didn't show his hand" when questioned about abortion rights (quyền phá thai), for example, though he did call Roe v. Wade "important precedent" that has "been reaffirmed many times over the past 45 years."
