Texas Holdem Online Limits

You will notice various limits when you play Texas Holdem poker online. The tables will be clearly marked with the limit amounts and typically require a specific amount (or a maximum amount) of a buy-in. The Texas Holdem limits include three types: Limit, No Limit and Pot Limit.

Limit Texas Holdem has previously known structured betting amounts or “limits” throughout the poker game, which will be known ahead of time.

Poker games like these will be listed with limits such as $.50/$1, $5/$10, $20/$40, $50/$100 and so on. This means the big blind and the bets before the flop and on the flop are all equal amounts (the smaller of the two amounts listed). It also means the bets placed on the fourth and fifth streets plus any raises are doubled (the second or higher number listed).

Raises permitted for this type of a game usually are capped at three per round. This means any player is only allowed to make four total bets during a poker betting round in a game of Texas Holdem online. This includes the initial bet, a raise, a re-raise and the final raise.

No Limit Texas Holdem is different than limit Texas Holdem poker and the only predetermined bets set for this type of poker game are the minimum bet, which is typically equal to the sum of the big blind bet. This type of Texas Hold’em poker game allows every poker player the chance to place a bet at any given time in any amount desired – up to the total sum of all of his or her chips involved in the game.

Raises in a No Limit game commonly are at least twice as much as the previous bet placed, such as any poker player who wanted to raise a bet of $10 would have to raise the bet to at least $20. The maximum amount of a raise is only limited by the total sum of your chips on the Texas Hold’em poker table and there are no limits on the total amount of raises allowed in a No Limit poker game online.

Pot Limit Texas Holdem is “just as it states” – the limit for each bet is whatever the amount of the entire pot is at any given time during the round. The minimum bet for a Texas Holdem pot limit game is equal to the sum of the big blind bet.

The minimum amount of a raise for a game using this type of limit would be similar to no limit, since it requires the poker player wishing to place a raise to make a raise in an amount at least twice as much as the previous bet made. The maximum raise is equal to amount of the pot at any time and there are no limits on the number of raises permitted per round.
