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!
