few questions/[points to mention, thought it would be better to put them all in one post rather than a few different threads. First of all, a bumped into a ex-dealer the other night in a card room, reminded me of a hand that he actually dealt. iv asked many people about this and got a mixed response, so was wondering what you guys thought. I had Qh 7h on the BB in a $2/$4 live cash game, 10 handed. The hand was nearly a yr ago so i cant remember the exact action, few limpers and i checked. Flop came Ah Kh X. it was checked around on the flop, and on the turn, on the river i hit my flush giving me the nuts. The small blind had folded, me being an idiot trying to be a smartarse, checked it. I got what i wanted and there was 3 or 4 raises and re raises by the time the action got back to me. I went all in, cant remember how much it was, about a pot size raise. Pot was about 700 including my raise i think. they all folded apart from one guy, he went into the tank, then looked at me and said, "do u have a flush". this was my first live cash game, had just turned 18, and im not ashamed to admit that i was absolutely bricking it! LOL. i didnt say anything, and he asked again, being an idiot, again, i replied, and said im afraid so. he slumped back into his seat and thought a while longer, then he called the card room manager over, it was obvious he was a regular and was on first name terms with the staff. he said that because i had agreed that i had a flush, i had disclosed my hole cards, and if i was telling the truth, my hand was dead. The dealer protested and i think he actually lost his job over the matter. the guy called, i turned my flush, the manager said my hand was dead and the other guy raked the pot. was wondering what people thought about this? ever seen anything like it before? the dealer who i was talking to the other night, said that the reason the manager done that, was the other guy was a regular and it was my first time ther! and that if the same scenario came up tomorrow, it wouldnt be 100% that the same ruling would be given. Sorry about this post being so long guys! i bought poker tracker a few weeks ago, and, wow! made me realise how poor i play online, iv been playing way above my bankroll (as iv mentioned in other threads), and it has cost me. for the last 20 days i have dropped back down to 0.25/0.50 and im really motivated on improving my database! played nearly 5k hands without even thinking about moving up so finally i have found some discipline! last thing sorry. i have been playing on betfair, and playing quite a lot aswell, so i emailed them about the possibility of gettin rakeback, they denied, so i replied basically saying i would go play elsewhere etc, so they gave me 20%. but mansion were offering 36% and some other sites 50%. so i dont know. sorry about the long post guys, just a little excited etc, thought i would share it! Thanks Michael
Few Players recall big pots they have won - strange as it seems - but every player can remember with remarkable accuracy the outstanding tough beats of his career.

You got punkd real bad in that hand. It doesn't matter what you say that you have (truth or lie). There's no way that the pot should have gone to anyone but you.

iv been told that aslong as you dont disclose your exact two cards, its fine, and because i didnt say what flush i had it was ok. it was over a year ago now so nothing i can do.

In a live tournament a few months ago a guy was suspended 10 or 15 minutes from the game for saying his cards before the end of the play, but never heard of a situation like yours. I can only say that there aare a bunch of smart guys around and we just have to be extracareful. Anyway, I don't think whatt happened to yuo was fair and, as the dealer said, it was the pression of the regular player that made them have that decision.
We have to be crazy to like poker

u definetly got robbed. that shouldn't have been allowed. the manger was wrong. If u werent suppose to say anything about your cards why was the guy asking you? if telling someone your hand was wrong then y did Jamie gold win the world series by telling people what he had. in my local casino my buddy was playing 5$-10$ limit game and he told everyone at the table what he had and they didnt seem to care just no one believed him and he proved them wrong by showing his 4 of a kind and he took down a 600$ pot from it. I think u got robbed big time.
ALL IN! Take Er EZ!, If she's EZ take er Twice..
