Hello Dave,

Thanks for your reply.

I am of the impression then that a dribble bet is open to interpretation and maybe needs addressing at the next TDA summit because one could argue it could be open to collusion. Like I thought as it stands and from what youíve said itís a bit of a grey area if no verbal declaration was said prior to spilling the chips.

In terms of the reraise amounts, I am talking about no limit and I know there are some rules which are different to limit when it comes to raise amounts. Where I stand that 16 example the min raise would be to 32 as I understand it or I could be wrong?! Any thoughts?

I'm not sure if it's the same thing, but in my pub league, we do allow a "dribble" bet. I.E. Stack in hand, chips are dropped one at a time, provided that they are dropped at a reasonably quick rate. If there is any sort of extra delay between chips, the bet stops before that last chip. Similarly, if the hand makes any sort of backwards motion, no more chips.


Straddles are additional blinds. Yeah, in a 1/2 game, if someone makes a min-raise to 4, the next min-reraise is 6. However, a straddle of 4 makes the min-raise 8 and a min-reraise to 12.

Similarly, a double straddle to 8 makes a min-raise 16 and a min-reraise 24.

And, yeah, post flop the minimum is back to the regular big blind amount.

Of course min-raises and min-bets rarely happen, but it's good to know the rules.


Yes, the straddler can check if there were no raises. It's like another blind - he has the option to raise, but not required to do so.

Hello there,

I am looking to host a cash game and was wondering what would be the best method to use for a home cash game? Dead button seems easier to understand and I sort of understand the moving button but I get confused when it comes to multiple players eliminated or down to less than 5 players.

I have heard someone else say that in Vegas poker rooms, they use a variation to where the button just moves to the next player like a forward moving button rule but with the same blinds posted like dead button? Is he right? Would this be more logical to use?

Any thoughts? If someone could explain the forward moving button rule please also that would be great!

Hi Nick,

I hear your point about the verbal confusion bets and I understand the TDAís standing of the rule you mention. On the other hand I donít see anything about saying a number under the call without saying raise, this is the confusion I am having.

In regards to the link for the video, I have sent it in my last reply.

I hope that helps!

Live Cash Game Rules Questions / Forward motion, spilling out chips and straddle
« Last post by W0lfster on August 15, 2023, 01:52:28 AM »
Hello,

Whilst playing at my local pub, I came across a player who put in a bet without saying anything in one forward motion with chips in hand spilling each chip one by one onto the felt and then proceeding to take one of those chips in his hand back to his stack. Nothing was said and to be honest it isnít a casino or the World Series however by the book, would this have been allowed?

Also when it comes to straddling, the general consensus is that it is treated as a third blind. If we go by that knowledge say blinds are $1/2 and the UTG straddles for 4, and the UTG +1 restraddles to 8, would the minimum raise for the next player be to 16? This is for no limit. If nobody raises, does the restraddler get to check? When the flop comes is the minimum bet back to $2 on a straddled hand?

Why would any player say 5 facing a 3 blind?

According to TDA rules...In your example of the player saying "raise to 5" while facing a 4 bet...yes, of course it would have to be the min raise to 8.

Remember, TDA Rules do not allow verbal confusing bets...such as: No limit 2/3 blinds...Raise it 20 more! That would be the total allowed (20}...not 23

I don't like it, but that's what the TDA wants!
