Im often in PLO games where the dealer cant track the pot, so i help out when a player declares pot by telling them the size of the bet. But recently i got into a scenario where a pro throws two $100 chips on the river, and i declared that the bet was $170. Fish calls, pro wins. Then he tells me to stay out of other people's pots. Im not sure how to react to this. Usually my interest is just in speeding up the game, but i also dont see any reason that the pro is entitled to win more than the pot.
Then later another pro told me that if its heads-up its the player's responsibility to know the pot size, and if they dont say anything their opponents can get away with overbetting... I alwayd thought overbets were interpretted to mean pot. Wheres the line here?
