After the floor manager explained the ruling, I calmly got up, the crowd watching was shocked too -- as well as the other players at the table. I didn't make a scene, it was pointless at that point.
I found Lori, and just said: "I need to go." She wondered why, but we left -- on the ride home I was calm enough to tell her -- then she got mad LOL I did file a complaint a couple days later with the Michigan gaming comission. But it was fruitless. They pulled the video and reviewed it. I was just hoping to get my buy-in back.
But no. Honestly I didn't want to know if I would have won, didn't even stay for the flop. In my head, I didn't want to know if I would have -- it would have made it worse. Took me about 5 years to go back to that casino. And yes, I was protecting my cards LOL
