under raising rules
I currently had a situation in a live game and despite several conversations we couldnt get to the bottom of the rule.
blinds are 2k and 4k, under gun under raises all in 4600, 3 players fold and I have big pockets so want to raise, I am told I cant as there is an under raise, is this correct?
As I have not acted yet surely I should be allowed to do what I want, why should I let the players following me get in for very little than the BB when I have a big hand.
I understand if I have allready acted then the under raise doesnt open up the betting again but if I have not acted can I do whatever I want, including a 3x BB raise?
I understand there are some rules about the size of the under raise, some say if the under raise had been 6001 or more then it opens up the betting as it is 50% of the min raise, is this correct even though it is not too relevant in this instance I as I believe I can do anything as I havent acted.
If anyone has a link to a rule showing this it would be appreciated.
