I was playing in the pub league poker tournament. I made the ft there where 8 players were left. I was utg with A-Q with one spade and on heart and blinds were 500-1000 i called i had about 12,000 chip. Folds around too the button that who has a big stack of chips himself he decides too raise 2000, sb fold, bb calls and i decided too call. The flop comes A-5-8 all spades the bb decides too mgo all in for his last 4600 now i have a decision too make i look down and see I have a A of hearts and a q of spades i now have a decision too mak i ask the original raiser how much he had left so I decide too go all in he fold. I The other player a4 with no spade i get a 10 of spades on the turn too get my flush and took the player ot. After the hand was done other players in the tournament said i was not allowed too ask the other player how much they had left since they didn't act yet on the flop. What i don't understand is if one player is all in what difference does that make can some on explain that too me?
