# Full bet rule?

"In some casinos, the rule that a player must wager the full amount required in order for his action to constitute a raise. For example, in a game with a \$4 fixed limit, a player facing an opening bet of \$4 who wagers \$7 is deemed to have flat called, because \$8 is required to raise. Compare to “half bet rule”. See Public cardroom rules and “All in” betting.

The full bet rule states that if the amount of an all-in bet is less than the minimum bet, or if the amount of an all-in raise is less than the full amount of the previous raise, it does not constitute a “real” raise, and therefore does not reopen the betting action."

From wikipedia.

Hi i just wanted to ask about this, because i feel that this i quite important rule in hold em and don’t see it working on here. It is used everywhere i’ve played and i feel it should be used here too.

Example:

Player 1 got 1 000 000 chips. Player 2 got 3 000 000 chips. Player 3 got 4 000 000 chips.

Player 1 is dealer and raises preflop to 480 000 chips. Player 2 decides to call and Player 3 raises it to 999 999 chips. Player 1 goes all in (raising the pot only 1 chip!!!) and Player 2 decides to call. Now because replaypoker doesn’t have full bet rule Player 3 can still go all in, because he got raised (even when it was that 1 chip) and force Player 2 to unbelievable bad situation which could had been avoided by using the stantard (but still optional) no limit hold em rules.

So my question is that is this intented? And if it is, why?

I love existing rules, because you can tactics and use it as a trap to lift the pot.

Yep lol, been using it, but i feel guilty :)… Just wanna know rp stand on this

Interesting… we’ll take a look and see what’s going on. You might be right, in which case we’ll change it! I’ll get back to you on this one…

r u saying if you all in with say 15.000 two players call,but say i have

only 13.000 i should be forced to fold?

No remorse , it is no limit holdem. At any time, and everyone can play all in… or fold. Consequently there side pot.

There is a related problem with the blinds :Big Blind Smaller Than Small Blind

There’s a good explanation here: http://www.learn-texas-holdem.com/half-or-full-bet-rule-which-is-correct.htm

I’d like to get more feedback from players…

I’m old-timer

Why would a game adapted to someone with at least chips !?

Others players with more chips must be enabled continued tendering !

Who want different game there also pot and fixed limit tables.
