 Small Stakes PL Omaha Discussion of 1/2 and below pot-limit Omaha poker

 05-02-2008, 11:12 PM #1 KidLifeCrisis veteran   Join Date: Aug 2006 Location: Colorado Posts: 2,574 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!
