We were playing poker. I thought my opponent was bluffing. But my hand was so bad that even if he was bluffing, I'd have probably lost. So when he raised, I folded, although I thought he was very likely bluffing.
Can I say
a. My hand wasn't good enough to find out whether he was bluffing.
b. My hand wasn't good enough for me to find out whether he was bluffing.
One could argue that in (a) my hand is supposed to find out whether he was bluffing or not. I think sentences like (a) are used and convey the correct meaning.
