Default Cutting Chips and Pulling Back

I got curious about this after seeing it mentioned in another thread. I reach out with a stack of 16 quarters in my hand. I cut 3 stacks for a $300 dollar bet and pull the other 4 chips back. OK? I did this in Tampa recently and the dealer looked at me like I was an alien. What ruling have you seen and where?

That's a perfectly standard bet.

Just say the amount as you start the bet, that way you can't go wrong.

Difficulty arises if the other guy calls your bluff fast and then you decide to check with your stack in your hand [img]/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

If you didn't declare the bet size prior, forward motion indicates a bet and the amount in hand must be bet (milage may vary).

To ZP: nope.

The rule varies by house.
