Example

A player may bet a maximum of 200 if there is no prior action on a previous betting round and the size of the pot is 200. The player who is clockwise from the existing player will make the next move after that bet. That player can raise any amount between the minimum and the maximum, call 200 or can also fold. The all-out bet in this event would be 800. The raiser would first call 200 which will bring the pot size to 600 by making a whole bet of 800 after raising 300 more.
