Poker Dictionary




A 4-bet is the act of placing the 4th bet (= 3rd raise) on a single street of a poker hand. <br>
Pre-flop the bb is counted as the first bet, so the first raise is the second bet, the re-raise is a 3-bet, and the raise of the re-raise is a 4-bet. <br>
Post flop it becomes more obvious.
