re: Poker & Heading Off To Play Live Tourney
Hi - Thanks. I don't know how many ... LOL ... I forgot to see how many tables.
First he tried to steal a pot instead of splitting it. We did catch that. But then he was setting up side pots and the deal was so fast no one really checked it mainly because we were new to the group - and we realized he was giving himself more in the side pot than he should (he went all in). Then in this group, when someone busts out - and was on the small blind you have to add blinds in. Well instead of him adding his blind in, he casually said lets have the guy that just busted out deal ... by doing that, he didn't have to add in anymore blinds. I don't know if I explained that right, but he got out of putting up blinds. Then when the person to my right went out, I was required to put up additional blinds. I did what they said, but didn't understand it because when he was there no one did that - then I read the group rules - then I knew this guy cheated. He was short stacked and would have gone out on the blinds if he had to put up additional blinds.
So moral of the story - watch the table closely. Like there isn't enough to think about. LOL
