    The explanation of Call 20 on PSO is:

    "Call 20
    With small and middle pairs you mostly look to flop a set. This is a very strong hand and will likely win you big pots. But you won't hit a set all that often on the flop so you need to be sure that the amount you and your opponent(s) have left is big enough to make the call worthwhile. Our rule of thumb is that you and your opponent need at least 20 times the raise amount in your stacks."

    What I need help understanding is, for example say the blinds are $1 and $2 and UTG+1 raises to $6. Do you multiply the $6 because that's what it has been raised to or $4 because that's the amount that has been raised?

    I use $4... as $4 is what the raise amount was.

      Thanks. I know it's a stupid question but I would rather ask it now instead of down the line.

            It's the price to call that you use. So in your example the BB should use $4, the SB $5, and the button, cut off, etc $6.
