re: Poker & Live game, floor ruling situation. Thoughts ?
In most places I play in Ireland
, the dealer usually pulls in the stacks and strips down the larger of the two stacks, and returns the rest. Last night (different card room) when I refused to put my stack in the middle during a similar situation and explained what happened to the floor, they had their own little conversation about how they would have ruled, and without the support of the villian, they came to the conclusion that they would have ruled the same.
Knowing the place so well, going to the camera's whist a lovely idea was never going to happen in a MTT. Maybe in a cash game if the pot was large enough, but never in a tournament. Dunno I suppose you live and learn, but in all my years playing live I've never seen a situation as bad as that.
There is always the chance that the dealer knew the villian as well, but there is no way of prooving that.
