ANSWER: Assuming you have options, the place to toke is on the final bet. That’s the one that has to stay in action, whereas you can choose to pull either or both of the first two bets back.
When Let It Ride was new, if I was on a winning streak I used to put tokes on the line on all three spots. I’d put $1 in front of each of my three bets. If I didn’t like my cards and pulled bets back, I got the bet for the dealer back, too. The last bet always stayed in action. We were guaranteed to either win together or lose together.
One day I was told I could no longer toke in that way. The casino now would allow bets for the dealer only in front of the final player wager. Policies may be different at different casinos --- I don’t play that much Let It Ride. If in doubt, ask the dealer about house policy.
