Playing in a 1-2 game-gets to turn and I go all in with for about a 1000- it was a 1600 before my bet)
Opponent hems and haws and then says fold and throws his cards in face up- showing a set of kings-the rest of the players voice their amazement-
I breath- I had aq and two pair-- and then a another player says he called-guy running the game says he said fold...the dealer asks the guy and he says I called. (I believe at this point he was embarrassed that he said fold.)
Bottom line is his call was allowed to stand---it was more then me that heard the fold-(and the guy running the game was sitting right next to him)
*as a disclaimer- English was not his native language. But the guy running the game has lived over here for years.
