this came up last night in a small tournament I played, kinda bugged me
5 players remain, 3 get paid
UTG and BB are partners (romantically involved)
Shortstack shoves UTG 9bb
fold to BB (30bb) who says "fold"
UTG says "damn I had JJ"
BB throws her hand into the much face up QQ and says "didn't want to bust you"
I didn't think it was too cool and said as much but nothing we can really do right? To make matters worse I proceeded to lose 2 back to back flips against the shorty and went from 2nd in chips to eventually bubbling while both partners cashed...
