During the Divine Liturgy, how many times does the priest cense before the Pope, Bishop and Priest?

During the Divine Liturgy the priest censes twice before the bishop(s) or the priest(s), once during the prayer of incense for the Pauline Epistle and another during the Praxis. In each of these times the priest censes three hands before the Pope or the bishop, two hands before a hegoman and one hand before a priest. An extra censing to the highest rank in the church is given during the Pauline.
