Question of the week
by The Rock
Dear poker friends, a technical question has arisen where opinions split more than anything else. TDA does not say exactly what the rule is. But first of all from the beginning.
UTG makes a call.
2nd UTG raised
Until the big blind is folded
UTG calls the raise and opens its cards, even though the 2nd UTG still has chips. The rules on the part of TDA says the following:
68 Exposing Cards and Proper Folding
Exposing cards with action pending may result in a penaltybut not a dead hand. Any penalty begins at
the end of the hand. When folding, cards should be pushed forward low to the table, not deliberately
exposed or tossed high (“helicoptered”). See also Rule 66
Now the "mother of the question", UTG with the cards revealed by mistake yet, does he has full action or not. Except for one house, all those I've already talked to say that the flawed player can only react! That is, call or fold. He can neither make a bet nor can he raise. In a house one says, the faulty player has full action.
I am very interested in how the opinions are. Especially what you think about it.
