Similar to How do you deal with severe violations of table etiquette, I ran into a situation at a recent game that threw me. A player I was not familiar with kept doing really odd things. For example:
- He mucked his cards, with his chips, then decided he 'changed his mind' and tried to pull back two cards. This was caught and his hand called dead.
- After a hand, he looked at another players hole cards that had been mucked and never shown. He was called out on this.
- He kept mixing up his stacks of chips, so his large denominations were buried. He was corrected, but argued "the casinos let me do it".
As I had commented on the other post, I believe players are due the benefit of the doubt, this is a home game after all. However, at what point does it go from poor etiquette to cheating?
