re: Poker & makes you wonder
A similar situation happened to me. In a tournament, I was up against, let's call her Kim. The board read Q, J, 8, 7, 2. Kim puts me all-in. I have top pair and the smallest stack, so I call. She says "I have the straight," shows 9, J and starts reaching for the pot. I look at it and say "No, you don't." She asks "What do you mean?" I say "You're missing a 10." She looks for a minute, confused. Finally, I had to spell it out for her. She finally realizes it and I showed my Queens to take the pot. If I didn't look, she would have gotten a pot that was mine. Always make sure the player has what player ssays he/she has.
