When you make a second raise
. The blinds are considered the first bet, the raise
is the second bet, and the re-raise
would be the third bet, or 3-bet
Example: John posts the small blind of $1 and Rob posts the big blind of $2. Tom in middle position pre-flop raises to $6. Jason in late position 3-bets to $18.
