Hmm, I guess so, but I think there is a good reason for requiring hole cards be shown in order to claim part of the pot.

If the house rule is that the last live hand won the pot, the players can't agree to change that. Maybe some rooms allow more flexibility than that, but I could see how that could become a problem. What happens when the same thing happens with a player that you don't like, and he doesn't get half the pot? Or what if a player gives another player a "rebate" for taking a bad beat on the river? Coming from a room that is strict on that type of stuff, it seems like it could be a problem allowing players to decide how to divvy up the pot.

Re: Chopping a pot with a reg who mucks hand.

poppunk .. If that happened in your charity room then that's also a violation of the Gaming Commission 'code' and could end up getting the room in trouble if reported. Of course it's obvious when Gaming is in the room, or at least it should be, and the Players should know to act accordingly at those times.

I've known of a Supplier getting called into Gaming on just a phone call 'complaint' .. They didn't even tell the Supplier why they were called in until they got there so the Supplier couldn't check any of the facts before the discussions. Luckily this Supplier later used their camera footage to diffuse the issue with Gaming so they were 'lucky'.

There is a fine line between trying to run a casual game and not putting the whole room at risk for what might appear to be a minor event. Charity Players should understand, or at least have it explained to them, about the difference between room rules and Gaming rules. Some Players want to hear nothing of it and it's better to have them out of the room than possibly put the room at risk. GL

I wouldn't sweat about this happening at a casino table, much, much, much less at a charity room table. Much worse sins are committed on the reg (ones that a gaming commission would actually care about) than a rare accident where a player keeps things honest. You could easily explain something like this away as a dealer mistake anyway (he didn't mean to muck his cards, the dealer snatched them etc.).

Yes it's against the rules but if you speak up you become the db of the night. If it didn't effect you, are you going to call over a supervisor and have the player who mucked give back the money? Just move onto the next hand.

I was referring to live poker players in general, not necessarily the people in this exact game. There's so many sleazy regs out there.
