Another Thurs, another poker story
I think tonight was the worst I have felt for winning a hand. There were 3 of us in it. There were some decent bets preflop and on the flop. On the turn, first position checks. I am next to act, and am thinking of how much to bet. Right when I decide $6, I notice the dealer (who is behind me, and also in the hand) begin to flip over the river. He is the only one who sees it before someone stops him. Apparently he didn't know I was in the hand, and was going to check as well, so simply flipped that card over.
There was much discussion about what to do, the guy in first position was real pissed off, and thinks there really is no fair action to take. The dealer decides to just drop out of the hand, because he was the only one who saw the card, and it was his mistake. I end up winning the hand (2 pair) and the dealer flips over his 2 cards, and he had trips on the flop. Obviously the best hand, and he would have called my raise, as he was just slow playing.
Sucks to mess up dealing, but what do you do? Later we were discussing it, and thought maybe ending the hand right there and returning all chips is the best thing to do. No matter what is sucks for at least 1 person.
