^ dealing live, this is what I've been taught to enforce. By two different former casino pit bosses.
The TDA rule is different - it states that if the bet is less than a full raise then betting won't be re-opened for players who have already acted. Rule 10 of pokertda rules.
So a couple of scenarios based on that:
- After the flop, A bets $20, B calls and C shoves all-in for $30 total. A and B can either call or fold: they can't raise, because C's shove is for less than the minimum.
- After the flop, A bets $20, B shoves all-in for $30. C can call, raise or fold, because he hasn't acted yet. If C just calls (or folds), A can only flat call B's shove. If C raises, then action is re-opened to A again, and he can four-bet if he so pleases.
- After the flop, A bets $20, B calls and C shoves all-in for $42. A can now call, fold, or raise because the shove was above the minimum, and B can react accordingly.
