No, there is no common gesture. There is, however, the "one chip rule": If you are facing a bet, and throw into the pot a single chip worth more than the amount to call, you have called. For example, if the bet facing you is $10, and you throw in a $100 chip, that's a call, and the dealer will make change for you. If you want to raise, you are required to ...

TL;DR: Please just say the word "call." I suspect different house rules might apply here, but in my experience, these are general rules. YMMV.

Even if you do fold, the question of whether or not the person (and I'm assuming last-preflop-aggressor?) even has an advantage depends on a variety of factors: 1) Board texture. Some boards can be double-edged swords to his "visibility advantage" since his range opens way up on the best boards for him to c-bet, you have to be ready to raise and give them ...

First of all, if this is your first visit to a casino for poker or one of the first visits, it's a good idea to check out the specific rules that this casino abides by as things can vary from casino to casino and there's all kinds of little things that might differ from the online rules that you're used. To answer your question, make it a habit to verbally ...
