Default how is this a string raise???

Someone limps to me from the SB in a 3 chip 6 chip structured 15/30 game. I am in the BB and I throw out one chip, and another and another to raise. Villain calls string.

IMO this should NOT be considered a string, because I was unambiguously raising. However, villain said that because I put the chips in one at a time and didn't announce raise, that my raise wasn't valid.

Your thoughts? I have never seen this come up before.

Did you announce "Raise"?

What did the dealer say?

Seems like a raise to me. But you could have been clearer.

Since your first chip was less than half the size of a required raise it could be considered an illegal raise. I'm not much of a limit player though.

If no one has raised in front of you I don't consider it possible to string from the BB.

I've had a string raise called on me before when I put out 15 chips in a 4 chip 8 chip game, since I didn't have the amount sufficient to raise in my hand. My intention could not have been more clear, just like in OP's case.

Some rooms/floors are just plain dumb. This is a raise.

Because your action can't mean anything else, it is a raise.

If the Dealer ruled it a string raise I would call the Floor.

If the Floor ruled it a string raise I would take it up with the Floor Supervisor later. IMO, its not important enough to stop the game more than it already has been stopped.

I agree with this.

But come on, either say raise, or don't throw chips one at a time.
