|The other night at the casino, there were 4 of us that seen that flop. I raise, 2 callers and a min raise.
We all call. The turn comes, 3 checks and this guy bets, it's my turn to act. I start thinking out load suggesting
he has an over pair (366T on board) and I fold. Another fold and a re-raise, call. Both check and the raiser
showed pocket 3s for a full house, and the other guy shows a 6 in his hand for trips.
He gets upset that I "speculated" out load saying I distracted him thinking his trips were good.
I said I was in the hand, my my turn to act, I can try to get a read off the guys by talking to him. We ended
up calling the floor manager over and he said you can not talk about the hand or "speculate" on opponents cards
unless it is head up. Other people explained it is to ensure the "speculator" and "speculatee" are not colluding
by putting the other players off. I suggested that it is just silly letting other people at the table do your
thinking for you.
I guess I understand, but since I have done this dozens of times before and no one called me on it I am still confused.
Have any other live players ran into this? [url=http://www.playmoneypokersite.com]www.playmoneypokersite.com[/url]
