What are your thoughts on this?
So the new rule in live poker is that if you check or call the river with the nuts then you have to pay a fine. So you have to raise on the river.
If you don't know what I'm talking about, an example-
Villain 1- Ax
Villain 2- Ax
Board - T Q K J 9 all rainbow
If villain 1 raises, 2 has to 2bet and 1 has to 3bet until one of them shoves and then you can call. If you call the 3bet or 4bet you will be fined.
I find this pretty absurd because you may think that your opponent is just bluffing
and you want to see what kind of hand he/she is playing with.
What are your thoughts on this new rule?
(P.S I am not 100% sure but I think its only implied in WSOP
events. Do correct me if I'm wrong.)
