Invalid dealer's announcement
« on: June 19, 2014, 05:46:49 AM »
I welcome all to the forum. As you may notice this is my first post. First of all I want to say that I am very happy because I think this is the best place where you can learn all about the rules of poker. I have the following situation. Preeflop action The player A in position tree  Bet 3K player B in position four all in 30k. all the player is the fold. A player asks the dealer how much all in!? Dealer says 30k. A says call. Dealer cut chips and that the player B has a 40K chip. A wants to revoke call because his dealer said he players B have 30K!? What decision would you have made?

Welcome KQ...

 Your situation is covered under TDA Rule 46 Accepted Action. I will wait for others to respond before I comment any further because, I believe this to be the most controversial of all TDA rules.

Hi KQ and welcome to this forum.

Yes this is definitely an Accepted Action situation, so please review TDA Rule 46.

Generally speaking Player A is obligated to wager the full 40k AND A can win the full 40k.

If the TD considers the situation too egregious (i.e. too wide a spread between the declared and actual amount), per Rule 46 the TD can make an adjustment to the amount of A's obligation using Rule 1.
