"I Play the Board" Etiquette Question
Since I don't play live often, I had not encountered this before and was unsure what to do. This was in a MTT that basically turned into a STT because we had only 10 players.
I got into a multi-way pot with
from the button. I don't recall the exact flop-turn-river cards nor the exact betting sequence. But I stayed with the hand and went from open-ended on the fop; to open-ended, with a flush draw and a straight flush draw on the turn.
Following the turn, we were down to two players and a sizable pot. The river card gave me a flush (not the nuts). The other remaining player said: "I play the board". Again, I don't recall exactly what was on the board, only that I knew I had the board beat. Instead of checking, I bet my hand and the other guy folded.
Was I a d*ck there, or was it perfectly okay to bet?
