8 handed cash game
$1/$2Hero opens to $12 with 9sTs from MP1
Hero has $450 behind
CO calls with $300 behind
Button calls with $250 behind
3 to the flop
Hero checks against two super nits
CO bets $20
Since I slow played my trips, I will continue my line with a call
CO announced "all in" out of turn
Dealer corrects and says CO's action is binding
Hero tanks then decides to check
CO checks behind...what the heck?!
Dealer calls floor and floor rules CO is binding all in...
Hero now knows CO likely has a worse hand and insta calls
Question: if I had bet the river, or moved all in as a bet...would this have relieved CO of verbally binding play?
He definitely got a read off of me by announcing out of turn, since I wasn't sure whether I should bet or check, or what hands he would move all in with...
