An example where we can call the flop manager

You are on the river and an opponent is betting big. You are really hesitating; should you call the bet or fold. You're thinking about it. Suddenly you make a gesture that might make it look like you're putting your hand down. Instantly your opponent shows you a bluff. You let him know you haven't folded yet and call the bet. Your opponent disagrees and assures you that your hand was folded. Sometimes it can be hard to tell who is right. In such a situation, you call the floor manager.
