# Raising and multiple All-Ins

After reading the following links about raising after an all-in in NLHE, there was still a scenario I wasn't sure about when multiple all-ins occur.

In the scenario:

``````Mike    blind   10
Luke    blind   20
John    AllIn   35      Called 20 + 15 extra
Pete    ...
Bill
``````

Pete's legal raise here would be 55: call(20) + raise amount(20) + extra(15)

If Pete though only had 45 chips and pushed all-in

``````Mike    blind   10
Luke    blind   20
John    AllIn   35      Called 20 + 15 extra
Pete    AllIn   45
Bill    ...
``````

If Bill wanted to raise, what would the next legal raise be?

Was Pete's 'AllIn' considered a raise because it is now more than the previous complete raise/bet(20) plus the legal raise amount(20)? If so, the new raise amount would be 25 and the next raise would need to be at least 70.

Alternative, is it NOT considered a raise because it was less than the min raise amount (only 10) above the previous all-in. Therefore, min raise amount remains 20, and the next raise would need to be at least 65.

Or, am I missing something and the answer is something else?

• I think you answer your own question and the accepted answer is wrong. You say Petes legal raise would be 55, but hes all in 45, so its not a legal raise. The next raise should match 45+20=65. Jul 14, 2015 at 3:57
