    Please check the link above. I do not understand why he gets a penalty for not betting.

    If you have the nuts and are last to act, it's mandatory to bet the river. Not betting is soft-play (collusion) and is illegal.

      Does this apply to online poker as well? Like in big tournament?

        Probably not so much online since you can always missclick or read your hand differently from what it actually is.
        But people can report you and PS investigate your play on that tournament because of that.

          This rule does not apply online, however if you are found to be doing it deliberately (ie. soft playing)then Stars may enforce some kind of reprimand for doing so. And I would wonder why anyone would ever not bet the nuts when last to act, if you cannot lose you'd want to get more value, not to do so is just wasting chips effectively.
