So I'm wondering what the rule is in a particularly rare (potential) occurrence in pai gow. On my last trip, a fellow at my table stated this happened to him, and now there are rules in place just for this particular situation as a result of this hand. The situation was that a player had drawn some obscenely high paying bonus hand (we'll say 7 card straight flush for our example) but neglected to bet the bonus. Before setting her cards, she said she wanted $500 from each other player at the table who had bet the bonus and had the envy. Some players refused to cave to her bribe (despite having a $5,000 bonus coming their way), and she ended up mucking the hand. What does the casino do in this spot? Assuming she showed proof she was holding the goods, what happens after the muck? Is the hand dead once she tosses it? The player relaying the story to me vividly told us the NGC was called out and reviewed tape, made reports, etc. In the end, it sounds like the hand was ruled dead.
