Default Very confused on PLO

Here's why, I have been railbird'n it on a few sites.

Pot is $5 and next guy bets $9, the pot is $5, how is he able to bet $9?
I made sure my eye weren't playing tricks on me. 1/2 PLO, 1/2 blinds and one guy came in early with his $2, making pot $5, fold, fold, UTG+2 bets $9!

I saw a huge over bet on another site in a PLO tournament, pot was say $350, the next guy bet $800.

Please explain...

TIA!

If you want to raise, you first call. Then you add on top of that your pot size raise.

So UTG+2 has to call the 2, making the pot 7, so he can then raise 7.

2 (the call) +7 (the raise) = 9 total.


A simpler example: Pot size is 1 unit. Player bets 1, you can then make it 4 total.
