Been here like 10 - 15 times and have never left @#$% off over anything the card room was to blame for. Once I hit a straight flush to the king against 1 opponent, I had position and he checked the river, I went to reach for a small bet and he started to muck his hand prematurely so I said "@#$% it I check" and flipped my hand over. Right away a few players told me I just threw away my chance to win the high hand jackpot because I checked with the nuts on the river. I called the floor over, told him this was only the 3rd or 4th time I'd been there and had never played in a room that enforced a rule like that and that i was about to bet but checked because the other player began to muck his cards when i reached for chips. He thought about it briefly, ran it by another manager and awarded me the 400 dollar jackpot. I thought this was a solid managerial decision. If he had ruled against me I would never have come back there to play. It's a stupid rule anyways, there are plenty of players good enough to recognize that there opponent is not calling a bet on the river, not even a min bet, and putting out another bet right before flipping over a straight flush that's going to put 400 bucks in your pocket makes you look like a greedy @#$%. Not everyone there's purpose is to make money, some people are just there to have fun and socialize.
