At this moment I just got two tab !!! FOLD and CALL 120 ( believe it or not, cos I didn't make video) I had 3 times experience like this at merge. Is it normal rule ? I am sure at other site I can reraise or all in.
In effect you are trying to re-raise yourself. You were the last one to raise, because the all-in is too small to be considered a raise.
If someone else had raised, before betting came back to you, then you would have the option to raise again.
You should consider this in your bet sizing, maybe allowing the all-in by the small stack, to be a real raise, so you can still go all-in over the top. But then you risk seeing the flop with multiple opponents, if the small stack doesn't go for it, and no one raises...

I didn't know this was a rule. So this way the game gives various opponents of the player who entered all-in with less than a minimum raise the oportunity to see cards at the table... This means the game can turn more difficult for Serpang at this point, because, if he entered all-in with his aces at that point, he would get more calls than if he only does it after flop. And things can even get worst on his side if it happens for someone to get a better combination than AA with the help of the flop.
