Unless I'm missing something (wouldn't be the first time), this guy had two advantages:
1) he was allowed to bet less than his ante
2) he was allowed to past-post:
Normally the final bet must be placed before the last community card is revealed. As described, the final bet came after the last community card was revealed.
Surely the past-posting provided the bigger advantage.
Ahh, I did my rough EV/hand analysis based on the 30/10/10/90 pattern (or 30/10/10/0 if he missed a straight/flush draw, and also assuming he never folded.) In the case where he's betting 30/90/90/90 or 30/10/90/90 when a pair is already in the hand, the EV/hand is going to be higher. I don't have the time to crunch it right now though.Quote: chrisjs87
I should have just said he was allowed to spread $10-$90 on the street bets with a $30 initial ante. I think that should clear up any confusion.
I'm wondering why most gamblers don't have a problem sitting there and getting overpaid in a situation like this, but then they'll go shopping and correct the grocery store clerk who undercharged them for bananas. Morally, what's the difference between a casino dealer and a grocery clerk?
The casino doesn't cheat players and players should not cheat the casino.
