Odd rules in my local poker room for tournies. Thoughts?
For the last 2, maybe 3 months, my local casino has adopted some curious rules for their tourneys.....Curious as to what you all think. Here we go
1. Folding out of turn incurs a penalty..this will be a warning, then one hand, three hands, and finally a full round penalty.
2. Exposing your cards with action pending...this is an automatic one hand penalty escalating to a full round.
3. Hiding your cards on purpose or on accident so others cannot see them...warning, then escalation up to one round.
I have not ran across this in any other room.
