Nick -

I agree that open folding is a stupid thing to do. But are you saying you don't allow it?

Frankly, if I was a player who lost a hand to a player who had attempted to open fold, I'd be quite upset. I'd be equally upset if I lost to a player that was prevented from mucking a card.

If you do not allow open folding, then I think we've come to an impasse, and we must simply agree to disagree (even though I hate that phrase).

If you allow open folding, I gotta ask, how is that different than the player who shows one card and attempts to muck the other?



Action is pending: Tableing the second card!
Correction: Action is pending. Tabling OR MUCKING the other card.

Superstitions are silly, childish, irrational rituals, born out of fear of the unknown.
But how much does it cost to knock on wood?

Gentlemen,

 I would like to address this situation with more detail. Unfortunately, I am unable to take the time to do so right now. For those that are interested in my reasoning, I'll try later today.
