The Rules Are a Little Different in France

[user68268]

From early position, Andrew Hinrichsen raised to 700. The player on the button put in a reraise to 1,725 and action moved back to Hinrichsen. He four-bet by only made it 3,000. Why are we saying "only"? Well in France, the rule is you must double the total of the bet in front of you. In this case, Hinrichsen had to double 1,725 and make it at least 3,450 -- an extra 450 that what he wanted to raise to. Hinrichsen obliged and made it 3,450. His opponent moved all in and Hinrichsen folded.

"Could've saved 450," he said.
