Default Excalibur - Is this ruling correct?

Excalibur, right after the bloggers tournament at the IP on December 10th, $2-6 game. Five or six bloggers in the game. One blogger has already raised with the hammer and called to the river. He loses but gets respect all around.

A few hands later I am in early position and get dealt rockets. Yippee! These guys are here to have fun, so lets go! If I get 'em cracked I get to spin, if I don't, I should drag a huge pot. I raise and all fold (WTF!?) to the button who suddenly wakes up and says the button isn't right, it didn't move from the last hand. Polite discussion ensues, I say little as its clear to me the decision should be an apology from the dealer and the hand goes on, given there has been lots of action(not good action for me, but action nonetheless).

Floor comes over and says the hand is dead, I should take back my money, the button will then be moved and a new hand dealt. I say um, no, that's can't be right. Floor shrugs shoulders and walks away. Bloggers apologize to me and the dealer moves the button and the hand is re-dealt. The floor cracked my aces!! Is this the correct decision?

more then 3 people acted , the hand plays, since they all foldded is probably why he ruled, though the Blinds still had to act.

Call the Poker Room Manager over next time.

Funny thing is, I think it was the manager who made the ruling, tall thin guy with hair parted on the side, with an aloof way of carrying himself.

Excaliber is a great place to play if you don't mind a rooom where being friendly and talking are placed above the integrity of the game.

THe last time I was there I was with a friend of mine. She was playing a stud game and bet on 7th street with some flush cards showing. Dealer says "looks like she made her flush." After the hand is over she asks the dealer to no comment on the hands and the dealer says "we do all the time." She then complained ot the floor and the floor said "perhaps you should play at the Mirage." So we left.

Previous to that on Super Bowl sunday every delaer and the floor allowed two players to play one hand. I would normally not complain about such things, but I am a big guya nd didn't have room to pull my chair up to the table becasue the game was 11 hadned and these two players each had a seat putting 12 people around the table. When I complained to the floor she denied that it was happening even though I pointed out the two players sitting right there are playign the same stack and the same hand.

Whelp as the other guy said, there action is more for the "gambler" then the player or the travler passing through. Better run games are just down the street.
I hate those hotels in general anyway [the MGM properties]
