      I am a bit confuse as I have been in more occasion to make the raise in early phase of a Sit to 3 time the Big Blind.

      Now, I have just read the new article of Steinek that suggest to raise 4 time the Big Blind.

      Somebody may help to clear my confusion?
      Thx :heart:

      Both is fine.
      Some argue that in the early phases you should raise 4 to get more chips in the pot but imo it doesn't make a big difference.
      I would say do whatever you feel comfortable with.

      There is a quite new article in the section about betting sices. essentially you bet higher at the beginning of a tournament, because otherwise people won't respect your blinds, in the later stages your raises get smaller.

      in the 10/20 stage you should raise 4x bb... Just to get some marginal hands out the way and get more value since you are only raising with decent hands early on.

      Yeah in lower limit if you raise to 3bb on 10/20 level you generally get a few people along that you dont want :) Some ppl are just calling anytwo since its only 60chips and well, you still have 1420 left if you dont hit. Personally i raise 4 bb at 10/20 then to 3bb untill 50/100 where i do 2.5bb raises unless its push or fold already.
