After a bet is made in a betting round, any further increases to the bet amount are referred to as a "raise". The amount of money that a player may raise is dependant upon the game type. For further information on game types visit our Games Limit section.
A raise is a bet that increases a bet by a previous player. If player A bets 30, player B might raise to 60 forcing all other players to call 60 if they wish to stay in the pot, and forcing player A to put in an additional 30 to stay in. Most games have a maximum number of raises for each betting round. This number is typically three.
To increase the amount of the bet after the betting has already been opened in a round. For example, if the betting limit is $10 and player A bets $10, player B can fold, call the $10, or raise it to $20. Often, an inexperienced player will say "bet" when he means raise or "raise" when he means bet.
When one raise's they are increasing the bet required for other's to stay in the pot. This way a player can rank him/her self amongst others to see the strength of the hand. This action also gets rid of players with weaker hands. If the raising occurs in the first round than this is known as the opening bet. When a player wishes to raise the raised amount he/she is said to re-raise. It is required that the person re-raising to re-raise the equivalent to higher amount of the previous raise, for example, if Mike raises $20 than I might re-raise him $20 or more. Mike: Raises $20 pot: $20 Tiam: Re-raises $20 pot: $60 (Mike's $20 plus I bet $40 (matching Mike's raise and re-raising him $20) I am not able to re-raise mike for $10 since that is lower than what he raised. This is called the minimum bet. For more on poker betting hand look at our Poker Tutorial Section.
