  4. ##### EXAMPLE #####
  5. 100/200 NL, 3 players who we'll call B, SB, and BB.
  7. B is first to act and raises 300 on top of the big blind for 500 total. The minimum raise is now 300 on top, or 800 total.
  9. Without announcing a raise, SB throws in a 500 chip, putting 600 in front of him. Since the raise amount was less than half of the minimum, the dealer announces that this is a call of 500, and returns 100 back to SB.
  11. BB does the exact same thing as SB did, and throws in a 500 chip without announcing raise, putting 700 in front of him. This time the raise amount is more than half of the minimum, so the dealer announces that this is a raise, but the player must make a full raise of 800 total.
  13. Unfortunately BB didn't have enough to complete the full raise. He only had 50 chips left so he is now all in for 750. Since no players completed a full raise over B's initial raise, neither B nor SB are allowed to reraise here. Their only options are to call the 750, or fold.
  15. ##### EXPLANATION #####
  16. Here is Rule 41 of the TDA :
  18. 41: Raises A: A raise must be at least the size of the largest previous bet or raise of the current betting round. If a player raises 50% or more of the previous bet but less than the minimum raise, he must make a full raise. The raise will be exactly the minimum raise allowed.
  20. B: In no-limit and pot limit, an all-in wager of less than a full raise does not reopen the betting to a player who has already acted and is not facing at least a full raise when the action returns to him. In limit, at least 50% of a full raise is required to re-open betting for players who have already acted.
  22. For example, let's say you are playing NL holden with blinds at 100-200. You are first to act after the flop and you bet 500. A shortstacked player then shoves all-in for 700. Two other players call behind him. Now it's back up to you and you want to reraise. This scenario leads to arguments all of the time and I've seen lots of floor staff get it wrong.
  24. Rules are going to be different from place to place, but under the TDA rules, it does not open up the action again to you unless the shortstacked player's raise is at least a full raise. So in the example I gave, the shortstacked player would have to have made it 1000 for you to be able to reraise when it got back to you
