A 3-bet is the third bet on a street. A 4-bet is the fourth.
Preflop, the first bet is the BB posting his blind.
Preflop a 3-bet is the re-raise
BB posts, UTG raises, BTN re-raises (3Bet) SB re-reraises (4-bet)
A 5-Bet is almost always a shove unless stacks are very deep.
Preflop, normal bet sizes are raise = 2.5-5BB
3-Bet = 3 x previous raise
4-Bet = 2.5 x previous raise
Post flop a 3-bet is again the third bet made.
UTG raises, BTN re-raises, UTG re-re-raises (3bet)
Usually a post flop 3-bet = a shove
