So if the action had got back round to seat 2, he'd be able to call, raise or fold? But because he's complained, his hand's dead?
(Edit - think I'm being an idiot. He couldn't check could he, he had to at least call? Makes sense now.)
If you missed your turn to act and two players or more have acted your hand is dead from gaining that edge of knowing what's happening after you wether or not it gets back to you, if you miss your turn but everyone checks it may well be different. I doubt you should be allowed to make aggression.
If it was post-flop and you were first to act, then it would be the same as checking, wouldn't it? Obviously different preflop.
It really pissed me off in live games when people open fold aswell for the same concept, you know for instance if you want to bluff you have one less player to go through. I've brought it up a few times and no one seems to understand what I'm saying. Backing it up with, but you can open fold on stars #facepalm
This one's not as simple as that for me. I understand what you're saying, but sometimes it speeds the game up and it's better than people acting out of turn, etc. I think there are worse crimes at the poker table than this.
