The half-bet rule
says that if a player puts an amount of chip greater than or equal to one-and-a-half the original amount needed to call
, the player is committed to raise
Example: The amount for me to call was $4. Mistakenly, I put $7 into the pot. Since it was greater than one-and-a-half the original amount to call, I was committed to fully raise to $8.
