So I am at a 1-2 NL game and there is a hand with two players left. The turn comes and the first player who has $200 makes it $50. The second player has about $90 and moves the whole stack past the line and quietly says call. The dealer says all in and the first player says call. In the meantime the second guy tells the dealer he said call not all in so the dealer puts $40 back and deals the river. The first player still thinks the guy is all in and shows his cards. The second guy mucks and then the first guy see's that he still has some chips left and questions the dealer about the all in call and he says he would have made a bet on the river if he had known the guy was not all in. Of course there begins a whole table full of arguments about should haves etc. etc. The question is, should the dealer have given him his chips back or declared it to be an all in as the stack crossed the line. I don't think this was an angle shoot as the second player did not seem to be very familiar with live poker and his demeanor was one of uncertainty throughout the game. In my opinion this is another of many problems that can be avoided if the dealer would just do his job and take control of the table. At the least he should have made sure player one knew that he has ruled that it was not an all in as he had stated so player one could have made his bet on the river.
