Bet Control 'Em with Limit Hold 'em Poker

In Hold'em Poker, there are certain rules that govern betting. These rules vary among the different Hold'em Poker bet-based variants. The pot amount that can be raised per game is partly dependent on these betting rules.

There are three types of Hold'em Poker betting structure. These are Limit Hold'em, Pot Limit Hold'em, and No Limit Pot Hold'em. Each type determines how much a player can expect to win from a game. Among the three, Limit Hold'em Poker has the most hold on how large a pot size can go.

In Limit Hold'em Poker, as the phrase implies, there's a restriction on how much players can bet and how many raises can be done. The amount of bet that players can add into the pot are fixed to a certain amount. Here, bet limits are practically the same as raise limits.

Not only is there a restriction on how much amount can be raised, there is also a restriction on how many times can raise be taken as an option. In Limit Hold 'em Poker, this roughly translates to one big blind, one raise, and two or three reraises.

For instance, in a $5/$10 Limit Hold'em Poker with a small blind of $2.50 and big blind amount of $5, the bets increase in additions of $5 for the first and second rounds of betting.

For the third and fourth rounds of betting, the bets are in additions of $10.

On the one hand, the restrictions that this game imposes on betting amounts may not be bad for players with bad hands and a terrible streak of bad hands. On a $5/$10 Limit, their losses would range approximately between $5 and $25 on the first round and The Flop, and between $35 and $55 during The River and The Turn.

Limit Hold'em Poker may also work just fine for gamblers on limited bankroll. Raising can be used in poker as a strategy to bump players off the game, and if you play in no limit games, you may yourself out of the poker table just after a few raises.

On another hand, players may just content themselves with a fairly less juicy pot prize.

In Limit Hold'em Poker, raises are fixed to a specified amount, and re-raises are restricted to a few, specified times. How large a pot can be is already predetermined to a certain degree in Limit Hold 'em Poker.
