Raising Buttons - confused by numbers


I'm confused by the numbers I see when using the Raise buttons 1/3, 1/2, 3/4, Pot, Max in the trainer. In one example the pot is $13, I'm the SB ($1), the call button says $1, when I click the Pot button the Raise button says "Raise to $16". Why not "Raise to $13" which is the pot? I get that $16 is Pot+SB+BB but I don't understand the logic of it.

In another example I'm the dealer, blinds are $1/$2, the Pot is $11, the call button says $2, I click the Pot raise button and Raise button says "Raise to $15". Can someone explain?

    The pot raise will always take into account the pot size AFTER you call the bets that you are facing. I can't interpret the numbers you have in your post, but pot raises are always based on the pot amount after you call any bets you are facing. Same with the 1/3, 1/2, 3/4 and max buttons. Your raise is based on the pot after calling the best you are facing.
