Hello folks,

Sorry if I doubled someone's post, but I could not read all the 3 pages to wait for clarify situation =)

Pot limit calculation is what Brian said.

Its like in movies :

"I call you Johnny..., and I raise to ten thousands dollars !

(Crowd) : OOOOOOOOOOOWWW

Of course today it is considered as not eligible action but by these old times, guns were allowed at the tables =)

**So here we go for the table :**

Blinds : 100/200 Preflop

Player A : SB - 100

Player B : BB - 200

Player C : Calls 200

Player D : Raises PotThe traditional how-to is the following : (like in movies remember)

Player D puts the amount of the call, in this case 200, then we make the SUM of the pot so

Pot : 0 (Preflop)

A: 100

B: 200

C: 200

D: 200 (amount of call)

We get 700.

**This amount is the raise, not the entire bet. So you have to add the amount of call (200) and the amount of raise (700) to a total to 900.**If we take another situation where Player A as SB raises pot, we get the following :

A : 100

B : 200

C : Calls 200

A : Raises pot

A puts the amount of the call (200) then we go to the maths

A : 200

B : 200

C : 200

**and we get a 600 raise for a 800 total bet.****So we can see that prior chips do not enter in the pot calculation.**With the 3x rule, we get the same results

Case 1 : (3xC) + (A + B) -> (3x 200) + (200 +100) = 900

Case 2 : (3xC) + A -> (3x200) + 200 = 800

And I just saw that the original post was from 2012
