  1. So if someone puts a stack of chips in front of the white line & does not declare a raise & starts counting out the chips in 10s then this is of course a string-bet.

    We had a Leb who was really p!55n everyone off early this morning because another player was going to raise but he did the above stated actions without verbally announcing it. So the dealer & the rest of the table was telling them it was a call & not a raise = string bet.

  2. Fire4FX that is not a string bet. You do NOT have to announce a raise if you put multiple chips out there. Just gonna give you insight on how professional poker rooms do things. You can bet 5 dollars I can bring out a stack of 20 1 dollar chips without saying a word count off 3 stacks of 5 in front of me pull the remaining 5 back to my stack and that is a legal raise. The only time not announceing something is a call is if i threw 1 25 dollar chip in n didnt announce anything. THE END

  3. Despite you trying to make it sound like you play in professional poker rooms, its obvious you don't. What you described is a string bet (unless it was announced $15). If you hold 10 $10 chips in your hand, you CAN'T just drop 4 in, a bet has to be in one motion, or what's in your hand. You can hold 10 $10 chips in one motion put it down across the line, and you can count it out (usually in two stacks of 5x$10).

  4. In dice, we ask that you make your bets all at once instead of stringing us along with a five dollar chip for the four, a five dollar chip for the five, a five dollar chip for the six ( it's six dollars, moron!), a five dollar chip for the nine…. ugh.

  5. HOW TO BE AN ASSHOLE AT POKER 101. The only people worried about someone putting their money in the middle of the table are those with weak hands and weak play. Who cares what someone "announced" before they start to put their money in a bet. They can speak in tongues for all I care. Just as long as their money ends up in the pot for me to take. I play with some losers who call foul every time I did this. But every time I did this, I won the pot and the only reason they said anything is that they could not call or raise my bet. Losers call string bets.

  6. I thought a string bet was motioning forward with chips on your hand, looking for a read and then , without dropping them, bringing them back in?

  7. Interesting..I did exactly what you described at 1:29 and was told by the dealer I could only make a minimum raise because I didn't declare an amount.

  8. What the love there's baby's in the casino if you do that preflop. What the love I get it on the flop then after. But why can't you do that first hand pre flop loveing baby's dude
