      Just one quick question,

      A standard pre-flop raise is (3 + no. of limpers) times the blind. If the SB completes, is he also counted as a limper?

      For example, if i get 2 limpers + SB who completes, do i rase 5 or 6 times the BB?

      Hi hammiemon85,

      You should actually be raising 4bb's + 1bb for each limper.

      If we are in the BB, and there is 2 limpers + the SB completes, imo we should raise 6.5 BB's. You need to bet according to the pot size, and the SB only contributes an extra .5 of a BB.

      But remember, if you are betting half of your stack, you need to push allin instead.

      Theres more info on SSS bet size's here.

      Best regards,
      Stiev

      right, i think i get it now. Sorry about the confusion with the 3 or 4 raise, i actually meant a bet of 4BB (1 + 3 raises)
