Default Minimum bet in NL

I'm not really a newbie, but this is a newbie question so I'll post it here. What is the minimum bet and minimum raise in a no limit hold'em game?

I know it depends on the blinds and on the previous bets and raises, but I don't know exactly how. For example, does the minimum bet size double on the turn? What if someone bets 100 and the next guy raises to 250? What's the smallest raise (i.e. "bet larger than 250") that I'm allowed to make here? (Is it 500?) Suppose I fold instead, and that everyone else folds to the original bettor. What's the smallest raise (i.e. "bet larger than 150") that he can make? (Is it 300, since he has only been raised 150?)

Is the number of re-raises unlimited (i.e. limited only by the stack sizes and the rules about the size of the minimum raise)?

The MB doubles on the turn and the MB is the minium raise.Ones bets are limited by the buy in and any money you've won at the table;but you can bet your whole stack any time you want-lost 200BB going all in on the flop with pocket JJ that hit a set,while the winner was playing a QT and hit a straight

This should help:
http://www.homepokertourney.com/betting.htm

Depending on where you play the minimum bet may or may not double for the turn and river. At most online sites the minimum initial bet (equal to the big blind) remains the same throughout the hand. But, if you play at Pokerroom you will notice that on the turn and river the minimum bet is double the big blind.

Default number of re raises

no one has yet replied to the number of reraises.

i've been told betting and raises go around three to four times depending on what is agreed before the game begins. can anyone shed some light?

As it says on the page miser linked too, there is normally not a limit on the number of raises as long as nothing strange happens (like someone raising all-in for less than the minimum they would normally be allowed to raise), which would prevent any more raising.

Basically when one is in a raisiing war one will be making pot size bets-so you'll be all in in about three raises-unless you have a giant stack.
