      hi.

      How much to raise?

      One rule says: There has been one or more raises in front of you

      -->3 x the last raise + 1x more for every caller.

      I am not sure what the caller means in this rule

      lets say I play NL20 (my stack 4$)


      UTG: $0.20
      UTG+1: $0.20
      UTG+2: $0.20
      MP1: $0.20
      MP2: $0.20
      MP3: fold
      CO: $0.40
      hero BTN: $1.20 (3x$0.40) is here my raise ok?or it should be all in?( (3+5)x$0.40

      SB: $0.10
      BB: $0.20

      thank you!

      Come again?

      What do you mean with this: 5 limpers and one min reraise?
      so all in is less than pot size bet than and it is a easy shove


      If some one raise and there is a call of his raise after that then you raise (3+1c)x or about pot size bet.
      If there are some limpers in front you add them to the raise to make it pot size again...

      Best regards,

      Some one raise before you and someone else called his raise before you, this is the caller.

      thank you!

      If you mean, as Kukki said, 5 limpers and 1 min-raiser you have to bet (roughly) 4BB + 1BB per limper + 2BB for the min-raiser = 4 + 5 + 2 = 11BB. And that would surely mean you'd have to push all in, not re-raise to 1,20.


      In another example, let's say you are BU and there was a raise from MP3 to 3BB and CO called his raise. You then have to re-raise (3+1)x 3BB = 12BB. That was 3 times the last raise plus 1 time the last raise because of the caller, which in the end is simply 4 times the last raise.

      I hope this helps,
      Dandy.
