Can someone please explain this to me? Someone has before but it must have gone in one stupid ear and out the other. Just watched a little \$2/\$4 PLO and someone raised \$14 from the button. If there's only \$6 in the pot...

I'm not a PL Player but hopefully this little article I found will explain

"The maximum amount a player can raise is the amount in the pot after the call is made. Therefore, if a pot is \$100, and someone makes a \$50 bet, the next player can call \$50 and raise the pot \$200, for a total wager of \$250."

If the pot is 100, and someone bets 50 into it, than you can pot it again. This means: 3x the original raise plus what is in the pot already. So: 3x50+100. It will be than 250.

Also described: the chips which is already in the pot called active pot, plus all other money on the table, plus the minimum bet what the raiser has to call.

In pot-limit Omaha, many structures treat the little blind as if it were the same size of the big blind in computing pot size. In such a structure, a player can open for a maximum of four times the size of the big blind. For example, if the blinds are \$5 and \$10, a player may open with a raise to \$40. (The range of options is to either open with a call of \$10, or raise in increments of five dollars to any amount from \$20 to \$40.

So there are slight differences in calculating the pot, but the basic method is 3x the original bet plus whats in the pot already.
