Acting out of turn

Acting out of turn

In live poker, announcing an action or making a motion to bet, raise, call or fold when it is not one's turn to act. A certain amount of this occurs accidentally (because players are not paying attention or cannot see that another person hasn't acted yet), but when done intentionally, this can be a form of angle shooting (watching the opponent's reaction to the action out of turn and then revoking or modifying the action when it is the angle shooter's turn to act).

Example: "I was playing against a real angle shooter. Twice, he went all-in out of turn, said 'oops', and then folded after I shoved with the nuts."
