Thats correct, played yesterday and a player (newbie) put in the most blatent string bet that i have ever seen. He was re-rerasisng by raise on the river, sid call, put out his chips then raised, then said "actually hold on, i might as well go all in while im at it" I was holding the nut flush, but i still stopped him and only allowed the call. Rules are rules.
