could someone tell me how they calculate the bet size? i see people betting more than the total pot (including pot + bets and calls before them)

the amount includes rake

for eg if pot size is 10\$ and they have raked 1\$, the pot size shown is only 9\$ whereas people can bet upto 10\$

Sometimes rake is huge

If their rake calculator is up to date, it's still 1c per 15c in the pot on NL and PL on micro, 1c per 20c in the pot on 0.10/0.25 and 5c per 1 dorrarh in the pot on anything over.'

And they list it as one category "No limit/Pot limit" as being the same.

Isn't a pot-sized raise something to do with the pot+one big bet or something?

I've never been too great with understanding pot limit besides the general gist.

I think his question is not related to the rake... maybe it's something like this:

We're HU in the hand and the pot is \$3. Villain bets \$2 into it (making the pot \$5 at this point in the hand), and then the software tells us that we can bet "pot" with \$9. The OP looks at the \$9 and doesn't understand why it can be so, instead of \$5.

That happens because a "pot bet" is equal to the sum of that which we have to call and THEN to the size of the pot.

In our example the pot is \$5 before we act. As we have to call \$2, the pot becomes \$7 and THEN we can put \$7 more, making it a \$9 total maximum pot bet (\$2 call + \$7 raise)

In another situation, if villain bet \$5 on a \$5 pot our maximum"pot bet" would be \$20.
