I've heard that if your cards, as you filp them up to show what you have, touches any of the community cards it's considered a fold regardless of what you have. I'm sure in a home games and some charity tournaments don't enforce this but some say casinos are very strict on this rule.

re: Poker & Touching the Community Cards
the rule is if your cards touch the muck they are considered dead, not the community cards. though who knows, this might be enforced somewhere somehow
