Had something come up tonight. What happens when someone says all in if it’s not their turn to act. Is it binding?

I know if it’s their turn it’s binding, but what if it’s not their turn? Thanks.

If there is intervening action by any player that did not have a chance to act before the player that acted out of turn, then the player declaring all in out of turn is off the hook. If all players check or fold to the player acting out of turn then the all in declaration becomes binding.

Exactly this

If there was a bet, or bet and raise, any call in between also means it's still binding.
this is also my understanding. "allin" applys always. it's different to "call" or "check" out of turn. in case nothing is to call, you cannot call. in case somebody bet, you cannot check

No, that’s not consistent with the rules.

Player A and B heads up. A to act first. B out of turn (OOT) declares all in for $120. A bets $25.

In both TDA and WSOP rules, B can now fold, call, or raise.

The actual exception to this rule (any bet/raise nullify OOT action) is an OOT fold, which is always binding.

Thank you for pointing this out!

The only way out of turn is "off the hook" is if there is a bet or raise by a player that has yet to act in turn. If it is only checks or calls, the all in is binding and effective when it is that player's proper turn.

^^ Or if the skipped player folds (in addition to a check or call). The skipped player must change the $$ amount faced by the out-of-turn player, by either betting or raising.

That said, some places have house rules that do not follow the norm -- some will dictate that the premature all-in is always binding, some will dictate that the 'call amount' portion of the premature all-in is "in the pot" even if the player decides to fold instead of raise after the action changes, and some will rule that an out-of-turn action is never binding at all.

Best to know the actual rules being used by the venue. Nothing trumps "My house, my rules".

I played in a south Florida casino (Seminole Hard Rock, Ft.Lauderdale if I recall) that held all verbal actions of a "significant" amount as binding. I hate the rule (it caught me for a big loss on one hand), but that was their rule.

Not a fan of the ambiguous "significant" amount. Not a fan of house rules that dont follow TDA or RRoP. Still finished up $74 for the session, so no sour grapes for the casino, but it could have been for much more.

I've seen 'significant action' interpreted as any action which is not a check or fold. Basically any action which introduces additional chips into the pot is 'significant'.
In home games, it is anyone's guess what will be ruled. :tdown:

I just want to clarify.

Player A bets 100, Players B and C have yet to act and Player D says all in out of turn. If B and C both fold then D Is committed to the all in?

Yes. It is the physical action of raising or calling with all of your chips.
