But for the most part yeah its kinda the unwritten rule if the situation calls for benefiting from a player being eliminated.
I have seen it happen so many times. All-in bets into a dry side pot, forcing everyone out. What does the person flip over? An OESD, gut-shot, flush draw something frivolous and infuriating to the rest of the table / tournament players. I consider this really poor etiquette and very much frown upon it because of these times that I have seen this happen both when I am in the hand + when I am not, haha.
I can't curse them too badly though because I have flopped a set, made the nut flush and nut straight during these situations and had these maniacs go all-in trying to represent MY HAND! These bad players don't understand why I checked so they walk out of the poker room shaking their heads held low. It was me being courteous people! Never the less thanks for your tournament life, lullz
I love checking a strong hand when other players will shove behind. PROFITTTT
