    What counts as a 3bet in NL?
    Preflop:
    Raise, reraise - is that a 3bet because it looks like a 2bet.

    Postflop:
    Bet, raise - ?

    3bet stat is only applicable to preflop play

    Can remember the history of its something to do with limit poker where the term originated from, The big blind is counted as a bet, since sb isnt a full blind, the first raise is a 2bet and the re-raise a 3bet. A re-raise is pretty much universally known as a 3bet now which causes some confusion post flop as people then start calling a re-raise a 3bet which it isnt

    So, post flop a bet and a raise is just a 2bet?
