re: Poker & Rule Question?
Yeah I donít have a problem with it really, but on the flip side I have always thought of the muck pile as the forbidden zone. Iíve seen players verbally fold but want to keep their cards, usually to show everyone what they folded and how good they are, and the dealer will make them touch the muck pile with those cards before allowing play to continue thereby making their hand dead.
But in this case it was obvious what the intent of the BB was and it was not to muck, so I donít have a problem with it, I was just wondering from a rule standpoint how this could go.

I realize that it is irrelevant, but losing to a judgment call is always tough to take, just ask MLBís Atlanta Braves.
