This is a discussion on 3 betting within the online poker forums, in the Learning Poker section; I have heard the term 3 bet or 3 betting but what does it mean ?
I've probably used the concept but how is it used?
Aha I can answer this one.
Betting 3x the big blind.
If there is more to it let me know as I am just learning all this to kick some tourney butts!

Preflop, the first raise is a "2-bet". The big blind is a "1-bet". Thus, if you re-raise a preflop raiser, you have 3-bet them. It originates from limit poker, where 4-bets are max per round, and counting the bets actually matters.
