Pot Limits

Pot Limit Hold’em

When it comes to Texas Hold’em there are a wide variety of different games with different betting limits. You can play No Limit games in which players can raise and bet with as much money as they have on the table, fixed limit games in which the increment of money that can be bet is set, and spread limit games in which players can bet any amount between a set minimum and a set maximum. However, one of the most popular Limit Hold’em games is pot limit Hold’em.

In pot limit Hold’em games the largest amount that players can bet or raise is the amount of money that is currently in the pot. If there is $50 in the pot then players can bet or raise up to $50. While pot limit may seem like a safe bet for many players who are nervous about the huge pots that can result from No Limit games, pot limit Hold’em can actually get quite expensive. If players continue to double the pot again and again then a pot limit game can wind up being very pricey. However, by the same token if you are looking to win a lot of money playing poker then playing pot limit Hold’em can be a good way!
