Once in a while, my post flop cards are so bad (no chance of making a hand), that, if, I am light into the pot, I will simply fold to a check....I don't want to be in the hand...maybe I need to go to the restroom...something...but playing the hand is trouble relative to the potential win.
I had a house tournament manager tell me that this was not OK...that it was an illegal fold.
Folding to a check is illegal ?
I can see in the WSOP rules that folding to a check is considered a binding fold, but I cant see that its illegal.
I dont see how it affects the hand in any way if I fold to a check.
Additionally, what if I got forced to fold in that situation by someone calling time on me ? (weird, yes, but its possible according the the rule book)
Please help me understand.
