After the river card, I made a "semi" value bet (I'm way far from having the nuts but I'm still relatively good). The community cards have a lot of potentials which I'm not gonna mention here. I'm gonna also ignore the stack sizes and the way the hand went. My question is: Is it allowed (or will I receive a penalty) if I declared "I call you anyway" in a serious manner right after I placed my bet? Now you might wonder what would make me want to give away free information. Well, according to the strategy in mind, a couple of benefits can take place here:
- My opponent might have a slightly better hand than mine. And in my view, my strange declaration (which I don't mind it to be binding) increases the changes for him to fold.
- My opponent might have a better hand than mine. But my strange statement can make him call instead of raise, which will save me some chips.
- Unlike what I mentioned in the beginning (I mentioned that I made a "semi' value bet), let's say that I made a total bluff. In this case, my weird statement increases the changes for my opponent to fold thus my bluff to work.
- Finally, I might be bluffing and my opponent might think of bluffing back. My ironic statement can hold my opponent from making a counter bluff.
These could be the pros of my statement in question. I'm aware of so many possible cons, like my opponent has the nuts and makes a snap All-in after my "beforehand" call. I'm okay with that. But, is my action allowed, and is it considered officially binding? whether it's a cash game or a tournament.
