You're on the money bubble of a live tournament. The bully stack has been beating up on middle stacks while giving the shortest stacks a free pass. This is standard bubble procedure for a bully stack.
The action folds to the bully in the small blind, who completes instead of raises because the short stack is in the big blind. The big blind checks his option.
The flop and turn go check/check, check/check. On the river the bully mucks his hand instead of checking.
Is that legal? Is it ethical?
Would it be any different if the bully had limped in from another seat and then mucks his hand after the short stack in the big blind checks?
What if the bully mucks his hand in position but out of turn?
