opening bet

(1/1)

Kerry George DeVore:
Two Questions:  I have 5 players A B C D & E. Player A is dealer, place B small blind, Player C is big blind. Blinds are 100 200. Player D wants to start the betting with a raise to 300. Can he do this or must he bet 400 or more if he is raising?

Second question:  Same set up as above. But player D & E  folds. Can player A raise to 300 or must he go to 400 or more if he wants to raise?

T-Bone:
Poker Tournament Directors Association rule book says it best: A raise must be at least equal to the largest prior bet or raise of the current betting round. The big blind is considered a full bet so the raise must be equal to that amount or more. In your example, a raise to a total of 400 or more.

Kerry George DeVore:
Quote" If the big blind is a full bet and a raise must be equal to or more of the full bet" isn't 300 equal to or more?

efdenny:
No, 300 would be equal to the pot at that point... in either scenario, the minimum raise is the previous bet, $200 added to the call amount, $200, for a total of $400.
