Hi, not sure where to post this so stuck it in here. I need help solving a few mysteries. If you are using the half bet rule:
1. blinds are 25/50, after the flop the 1st player to act goes allin with $15, what option should the next player in the hand be given? and what amounts?
2. blinds 25/50, first player bets $50 after the flop, second player raises allin to $65, all others call, is the first player allowed to re-raise?
3. blinds are 25/50, first player bets $50 after the flop, second player raises allin to $80, all others call, is the first player allowed to re-raise?
Appreciate your help!

HALF BET RULE
January 13th, 2011 #2
From what I've read, the half bet is only used in Limit (or spread limit) games, but since you ask for amounts, I assume you mean NL, where they normally use a full bet rule.
Here's how I read it:
1) The bet is less than a blind, and is all-in. This should be viewed the same as a limp, but creates a side pot, only allowing the player $15 per person in the pot. The next player can do as they please, as it is not a raise, merely a call.
2) Player 2 has raised less than the minimum, and does not constitute a complete raise, it is merely an oversized call. The rest of the table can call or raise this bet, except the first player. If everybody calls or folds, then the first player can only complete the bet, the action is not open to him again.
3) The first player can raise in this scenario, as the action is open to him again under the half bet rule.
