Protect Your Hand

[user252447] • Nivel 4: 150-300, 25 ante

The floor was called to make a ruling and it was explained as follows: Players A raised to 800 and got a call from Player B. When everyone else folded the dealer pushed the pot to player A and he released his hand into the muck. Player B still has his cards.

The exact two cards were irretrievable but player A said he could whisper his hand to the floor. The floor got on his radio and referred the matter up. When the next tournament official arrived it was explained again. He got on his walkie-talkie and referred it up again.

The final ruling was that player A’s hand was dead but that he would receive his 800 bet back. The blinds and antes went to Player B.
