      My question is the flop raise. Which amount is good to bet there, and how do you calculate what a psb would be?

      If Im not mistaken you calculate it like this: potsize (0,54) + bet (0,48) + call (0,48) + what it takes for you to call x2(0,48 x2 = 0,96), so a potsized reraise would be $1,96 if Im not mistaken.

      Yup, you are right. $1.96 would be a potsize bet here.

      @ Mugge88: I would raise potsize here on the flop ($2) to protect my hand against straight draws. After you get reraised it's an easy all-in.

      Good luck at the tables!

      With the caller, a pot size raise is $2.46 actually. Twice the bet plus the current pot size.

      (Current pot is $1.50, bet is $0.48. After your raise, the pot is $3.96 (well, minus rake, but we don't count that) and the bettor and/or caller has/have $1.98 to call. Which is half of $3.96, giving the same odds as a pot size bet to the first caller.)

      Yes, that's right. The formula was correct: pot size plus twice the amount you would have to call! But the calculation was wrong. Thanks, howard!

      Good luck at the tables!

      Here is another one: :D
      From the article on preflop BSS, the raise should be actual pot size x2 + what you need to call ,which equals 1,50x2+0,48 = 3,48.


      Oops, I went to check and I´m wrong. Howard ´s formula is right :rolleyes:
