Default Re: was this handled correctly?

If the floor is called he should be able to preserve the hand and would be correct to do so.

I disagree. The rules of poker clearly state thats it's the players responsibility to protect his own hand. The hand in question was fouled. I'm all for doing everything possible in the best interest of the game but in this case it's cut and dry.

IT depends on how the hand is protected. When a player makes an effort to protect their hand they are entiteld to some protection if it becomes fouled. In this case his hand is fouled which makes it subject to being ruled dead.
