MUCKED HANDS (finally, a ruling!) - JULY 3RD
about this, but here is the ruling:
1 is all in. Players 2 and 3 in a side pot. Player 2 bets, player 3 folds. Player 2 takes the side pot,
forgetting that player 1 is still in the hand. Player 2 throws his cards in.
Ruling: Player 2 will get a warning about table awareness, and cards turned over. If
the same situation happens again, the cards are considered mucked.
We decided that it would be inconsistent to allow the new player an exception (because they're "learning the game")
while being strict to a player who has been playing for a long time. To be fair, this covers everyone equally.
Final: We know that there will not be 100% agreement on this issue.
Some of you are more seasoned players than others, and feel that rules are rules. This is a poker league, not a Vegas
casino. We're here to have fun and learn at the same time. Please do not consider any rulings that have been previously
is how we handle this situation going forward.
