Ch. Ch. Ch. Changes
So, all my gambling life, if you want to raise the previous bet, you must raise twice the amount of the bet before you.
If the bet is 10 dollars, you hafta make it at least 20, or expel all yer chips, if less than double. And if you do push, it hasta be twice the bet on the table, or the rest of the table can't raise. Only call.
So..... I get to the casino, sit in a seat that is prolly filled with more of my farts than anybody else. A hand comes up......
Guy bets 10 duckets. The next guy raises to 20 (the bet is now 20 duckets) The next guy pushes with 30.....
Now, the way I used to play, this should cap the betting. The guy that pushed. Didn't put in twice the bet (40 duckets)
I fold, and the next guy announces a raise. Me, AND THE DEALER, tell him that he can't raise because the pusher didn't double the bet. He calls the floor.
The ruling? He can raise, because the increment that the bet went up was 10 duckets. So the pusher met the criteria. (10 more duckets)
So now, you only have to double the increment to raise, not the full bet.
"All my life it's been this way" say I.
"That's the way they do it at The Commerce now too." says (a very young and know it all) him.
The dealer and I shared a glance of WTF together.
Oz, what do you think?
