Thanks for the quick reply! I guess it was probably just under 50% then...
I'm sorry, I know I am on tilt right now, but what a ridiculous rule that is! The only way to get around it is if you 3-bet an insane amount more than the pot and give your exact hand away to the entire table.
It's either that or try to induce a large enough 4-bet from one specific player to the left, who hopefully has the exact hand and range and chips to do so, all of which is pretty impossible to gauge.
Seriously though, does anybody else have problems with this rule or just me? I don't actually understand what it is supposed to achieve other than to consistently screw over the chip leader with the best hand.
