  A Guide to No Limit and Pot Limit Poker Games: A Common Form of Betting

It is important when playing a poker game that you know the basic etiquette of betting and the flow of the game. Part of this includes No Limit games and Pot Limit games. This guide will explain various "need to know" information for proper poker playing and explain the difference between No Limit and Pot Limit poker playing.

Almost all poker games are played with some sort of betting involved. Betting while playing makes the game more exciting and interesting. It adds an element of suspense and you have to use your brain to figure out who has what types of cards.

There are typically several rounds of betting during each game of poker. You will have a dealer who after each game is played will change to the next person. Typically, there is a left rotation of the dealer.

Betting usually begins with the person to the left of the table and continues to go around the table as many times as needed for each round until all players have either called, meaning they met the minimum bet, folded (decided there hand was not good enough for that round of play) or raised the bid. When raising, you must first meet the current bid and then add whatever increment you would like.

Pot limit poker is betting based on the pot in the middle of the table. When betting, a player is allowed to bet the maximum size of the pot at the time their bet is being placed. This can get really interesting because as you move around the table, the pot will increase. Each person can bet based on what the amount in the pot is at the time they are about to bet. In pot limit poker, you do not however have to bet the maximum amount.

In other words, if the pot is $15, then the player can bet up to $15 but not any higher than that. This will typically not allow for players to go all in, or to bet all their chips in a certain round.

There are, as in most games, variations to this rule. Different gamers judge what the "maximum pot" is. Some include the large and small blinds that player place. The blinds are typically played at the beginning of each round by the first two people to the left of the dealer. The small blind is usually half the size of the large blind.

These two players have no choice but to bet these amounts. This betting starts each round of play and should be done before cards are dealt.

No limit poker is typically the betting style that is played when a poker game such as, Texas Hold 'Em or Omaha Hi is being played. No limit poker sounds just like its name. You can bet as little or as much as you like as long as you at least call the amount of the current bet. You can then raise the bet to as much or as little as you like.

Some players who think they have a hand that no one can beat will bid their entire pot or go "all in." When going all in, the player is either going to win a huge hand or they will lose all of the chips they have if their hand is not as good as they thought it was.

As a poker player, it is important to understand both No Limit and Pot Limit poker playing. These are two of the most common ways to play and bet. Many different poker games have been developed, but most use one or both of these forms of betting.
