How to calculate pot size for raises?

In pot limit games, I can't seem to grasp where the "pot" size raise is calculated. I'm hoping someone can shed some light on this for me with regards to the math, hopefully with a sample or two.

For example, let's say the blinds are $2/4, and you're the first one entering the pot. A pot sized raise would be $14, but where does the number $14 come from? There's only $6 in the pot, and another big blind on top of that would be $10 total. So why wouldn't a pot sized raise be $10? I just don't see the math that leads to the number 14.

Help!

Re: How to calculate pot size for raises?

before you raise the pot, they take into account the amount you would have to call so

SB posts 2
BB posts 4

Hero calls 4 (pot now 10$) and raises what is now the pot on top of that (so 10$ more to 14$)

some beef calls 14$

now villain raises the pot, so he calls the 14$ which makes the total pot now 2+4+14+14+14=48$. that means he can raises 48$ above the 14$ to 62$ total

example (also enjoy this hand )

Poker Stars $2/$4 Pot Limit Omaha Hi - 6 players
2+2 Hand Converter Powered By DeucesCracked

FlyingSumo (BB): $184.70
PokerJello (UTG): $234.00
dontryitfool (MP): $189.30
Hero (CO): $577.00
UNDPOKER (BTN): $727.20
iggymcfly (SB): $387.45

Pre Flop: Hero is CO with 7 A A J
1 fold, dontryitfool raises to $12, Hero calls $12, 1 fold, pot is 30$ and it costs iggy 10$ to call (which then makes the pot 40$) so he can raises 40$ above the 12$ inital raise iggymcfly raises to $52 , 1 fold, dontryitfool calls $40, now the pot is 120$ and it costs me 40$ to call so pot is 160$ when i call, i can now raise this amount above iggys bet Hero raises to $212, iggymcfly calls $160, dontryitfool calls $137.30 all in

Flop: ($617.30) 2 Q 3 (3 players - 1 is all in)
iggymcfly checks, Hero bets $365 all in, iggymcfly folds

Turn: ($617.30) A (2 players - 2 are all in)

River: ($617.30) 5 (2 players - 2 are all in)

Spoiler:

Ahh, taking the call prior to the raise into account is what I was missing in trying to figure it out. That makes a lot more sense, thanks!
