# SB raise in preflop in no limit TH

please correct me if I am wrong:

No Limit Texas Holdem

5 players at the table. Each has bankroll of \$1000. SB = \$1. BB = \$2.

• Player1 = BTN
• Player2 = SB
• Player3 = BB
• Player4 = UTG1
• Player5 = MP1

Pre-flop.

1. PL2 - sb - \$1.
2. PL3 - bb - \$2.
3. PL4 - call - \$2.
4. PL5 - call - \$2.
5. PL1 - call - \$2.

NOW:

I assume that if PL1 want to do minimum raise he must do:

PL1 - raise - \$4.

and preflop must go another turn.

In poker rules is written: Minimum raise: In No Limit Hold'em, the raise amount must be at least as much as the previous bet or raise in the same round.

(On some websites about poker I saw that PL1 must do \$5 raise. They say that at first he must put \$1 to call and then \$4 to raise. I think it is wrong. I do not provide links to that website to avoid spread of potentially incorrect information).

Am I right?

## 1 Answer

Since you didn't engage any money yet if you call you would do \$2 but the minimum amount for a raise there is \$4 since the \$2 is from the max amount that was bet in the table and the next amount you can place is \$2(max bet)+\$2(BB).

Answer:\$4

Some casino's might have some rules and sometimes they aren't the same as in other casino's.
