An increase to the size of a previous bet using more than one statement about the wager or using multiple motions to put chips into the pot; a raise that is made in the form of a string bet.
ADDITIONAL INFORMATION: Many cardrooms forbid string raises. One reason for this is that opponent's reaction to the first portion of the action may impact a player's decision on whether or not to raise or how much to raise. Cardrooms typically require that all chips for a wager be put into the pot at the same time or that the total amount of chips be declared before putting any into the pot.
EXAMPLE: "I call the blind and raise $100."
