The player who mucked did not look at the turn being dealt, he mucked, then noticed he had a caller.
Which is too bizarre to have been everything that happened. I suspect something like, the dealer has said "okay all done" (in Finnish) which vil has interpreted as meaning the hand is done rather than the action is complete.

When I lost the ruling, and went to discuss things with the floor boss, I was animated but not yelling. I was upset about the ruling though. The floor boss explained they're trying not to chase away new players who make mistakes.
I left because I made the point to him that unless they fairly enforce the posted rules, they'll lose other players as a result.
(Although I doubt they will, they have a state-run monopoly on all casinos in Finland)

Point is, I wanted to make a point that they were losing my business that day by not enforcing their own rules.
well, are they?

with their state run monopoly, where else are you going to play?

did you actually use the words "I appreciate your position and that you're trying to encourage people to play in your casino, but because of that I lost (euros) that by your rules published in your cardroom I should have won" and what was his response?

after this you ask if he understands why you are frustrated with the outcome, and gently encourage him to find a way to make it right. this kind of negotiation should be pretty simple for a poker player.

incidentally, if you had the nuts here, would you still be demanding the dude's hand got killed?

coming back to what i said before. if i was in your spot, i would be okay with him getting his cards back regardless of where i am in the hand (and i have done this dozens of times). he's obviously not shooting an angle, he's made a genuine mistake. that means he's a donkey. a donkey sitting two seats to my right. he is an asset. how much have i put in this pot? 30 or 40 euros? how much does he have in front of him? how much does he have in his pocket?

yeah?

Anyway, I tip dealers. Once at a cardroom in southern cali, I jokingly told the dealer if he dealt me a bad beat jackpot, I'd give him 10% off the top.
that's actually pretty standard, but good for you for not being a cheapskate.
