This hand is part of the IRC poker database. It's a limit heads-up game with a $10 small bet and a $20 big bet.
The database shows the following actions for the two players "Carcass" and "num":
PREFLOP FLOP TURN RIVER TOTAL BET Carcass Bf - - - $10 num r - - - $20
In this database, action
B means to post a blind,
r is to raise, and
f is to fold.
My understanding is that the game goes like this:
- Carcass posts small blind of $5 (half of small bet)
- num raises by $10 (small bet)
- Carcass folds
If this is correct, "Carcass" has bet a total of $5, and "num" has bet a total of $15. However the database shows that the total bets are $10 and $20, respectively. Is there any explanation for this, or perhaps the database has it wrong?
One thing that seems odd is that there is nothing that suggests "num" posting the big blind.
