his happened to me a few weeks ago at the Casino ?

Set Up
3 handed in the tourney, 1am in the morning (been playing 11 hrs so a bit tired). On previous hand I have just suffered a bad beat which cost me 90% of the chips in play (goes a little way to explaining what happens next).

I am on BB (8 BB's back) with 83o

SB goes all in (has me covered)

My exact words were "call, no fold, i mean fold fold, errrr oh sh*t" (there was no delay between the "call" "no fold". I couldn't utter the words "no fold" any quicker Very Happy

Dealer says, sorry you said call first so it is binding.

I didn't argue and flicked over 83o, one of rail said what happened and I told him "my fault I did say call first". The SB eventually tabled A2o and never said anything. The guy on the rail said I should ask for a ruling, I just shrugged my shoulders and said "it's ok, my fault".

As it happens I hit a full house and doubled up Mr. Green

My question is: If I had asked for the TD to give a ruling, do you think I could of got away with folding the hand preflop as I had obviously intended to ?

I accept the verbal declaration rule and obviously glad I didn't call for a ruling on this occasion, just wondered whether I may have a justifable case, because I think everyone (dealer included), knew I had meant to say fold and just got mixed up thru tiredness.

If the TD stands for 'tard, yes you could. I would have to work very hard, and it would involve you declaring fold when you have aces, to imagine a situation where a stated action was overturned because you made a mistake.
