In my local casino here in florida
,you have to announce raise or it will just be a call.
I have gotten into arguments before over this topic,because at another casino in tunica I play at often never had anything like that.
Yeah, I got pissed at Foxwoods. There's no bet line. The rule (that I didn't know) is any chips in front of your cards is a bet. I keep my cards tucked to the rail, and when action was on me, the dealer announced me all in, and put the chips in the middle.
I would definatly protest this action on foxwoods myself.
I think for shure you have to announce all in to be considered all in.
Unless it is a forced all in from the blinds....
