I went thru this scenario this past weekend. Sailboat, plee, packer, msbj and I were playing on sailboats reserved bacc table. On one hand i pushed my chips in on a bet and told the pit to give me an X amt if it lost and went to stand next to sailboat and plee. The max bet is 20k and i thought i had less. They took the bet and we won and i was over the max by an X amt and they only honored the 20k. Should they have honored the bet for that one time and what wouldve happened if i lost? Ive already gotten answers from my friends at the table but it is still in my mind. After we won the hand, they pushed the extra chips i had above the max bet on the hand back and would not pay the overage i had and said they would have done the same if i would have lost the bet. Ive only gone above table limits once but nate put my exta on his hand and the pit told the dealer that it was fine and "they saw nothing".
