I assure you if this happens in Pokerstars he would have flopped trip 4's
In Atlantic City,Indiana,Ohio,La,Biloxi,Tunica you must turn your cards over
Not true in Atlantic City, or at least not typically true in Atlantic City. I haven't been to every single place. I guess there may be exceptions or possibly dealers or floors who don't handle this correctly.
This thread should be renamed "Is it mandatory to show cards in a cash game?" :)
I tuned into 'a fishy tale'.
No fishing.... Just Poker.
And then a disagreement over what the rules are generally here and there.
No doubt you can work it out and everyone walks away knowing they were right ...
We needs us a fishy thread, this one isn't it ;-)
It can be referred to as a "fishy" tale.
Fish. Noun. An inexperienced or unskilled player, especially such a player who loses significant amounts of money; live one.
This can describe the person in the original poster's story who went all in preflop with 7-4 suited.
After all, OP did say a pro player once said, "The Bellagio poker room is like shooting fish in a barrel."
