    I'm not sure if this is legal or not, It probably is. Anyway, I'm on the stone bubble of a satty into a big online tournament and everyone is stalling, timing out etc. Without any action taking place from the deal the big blind writes in the chat "A10,gl" Insinuating that he's going with his hand. He has 7 bigs. Now, I have no idea what he had as everyone folded. Is this legal?

    Hi bpetrov78,

    It's a grey area.

    If he said 'I'm holding A 10 and I'm shoving' then this is not allowed.

    However, if he said 'Could you beat A 10?' then he's not actually saying he's holding it, just asking if you could beat it.

    In your case he said neither, see what I mean by grey?

    However, I would suggest you email support@pokerstars.com and send them the hand history. Let them know you were unhappy with what happened.

    They will investigate the matter and take any action necessary if they decide to do so. They might give the player a warning.

    Cheers,
    Raiser
    Live long and prosper.

      Thank you, It didn't actually happen on Stars and I didn't bubble so I was just curious really.
