How Much Should You Raise in Poker

start exploring

MINIMUM POSSIBLE RAISE

The minimum raise sizing available is identical to the size of the previous raise. This rule is slightly easier to conceptualise using a postflop scenario.

CALCULATING A POT-SIZED RAISE

Calculating a pot-sized raise is especially important for playing poker variants with pot-limit betting structures.

WHEN RE-RAISING IS ILLEGAL

Re-raising is not always a legal option in poker, even if we have chips behind.

USEFUL FORMULAS

Calculating minimum raise

Must be equal to previous raise size (not necessarily previous bet size).

Calculating Pot Sized Raise

Pretend we make the call and then look at the total pot. This is the raise amount.

Is the action still open?

Only if we have faced at least one full sized raise since we bet.
