Re: Florida rooms don\'t allow dealers to muck showdown hands

[ QUOTE ]

Want to sort out the mess?


[/ QUOTE ]
Did they table their hands? Did anyone see them? If so, best hand wins. If not, floor makes ruling.

Re: Is there logic behind this rule??

If you say what your hand is in a multi-way pot, you should be giving a warning/penalty. Heads-up you should be asked not to do it again. Under no circumstances should your hand be killed unless...

Re: Tales of the Grassroots: Ron Paul

I drive across the river to Council Bluffs, IA once or twice a week to play cards. The only signs up are Ron Paul signs. I have yet to see a bumper sticker other than mine however.

Re: 17 way chop - was it a good decision

If those figures are accurate you would need to finish in the top 4 > ~13.6% of the time to show any profit over the 17 way chop. Maybe a chop isn't so bad here. I still say play on.

Meh. I'd want to keep playing, but it sucks being the only holdout to a chop. If you're comfortable with being singled out and having people gun for you, then keep playing - otherwise just chop and...

Re: Ruling - How many chips in play?

I don't think the player was trying to pull an angle, I think he was actually oblivious to what he was doing.

If your bankroll is big enough for live $1/2 Limit, then it is big enough for live $2/4 Limit.

Re: Question on someone announcing \'allin\' out of turn

pfapfap is correct about the different rulings, unfortunately. In this situation, heads-up, he should be bound to his verbal declaration every time.

Re: Soft play at 1/2 NL?

Unfortunately common. Drives me nuts when asked, I have only accepted once when playing heads up with a cute dealer who was playing NL for the first time. Still felt dirty.

Re: Where is the softest 20/40 LHE in the USA?

I've only played once the 20/40 @ Horseshoe Tunica. Maybe I was just at a loose table, but it played like 4/8 with red chips.
