Limit Poker

A variation of poker game that is played more in live card rooms. As you can guess by the name, in limit poker betting (ie. bets, raises, re-raises) is limited to a certain limit. Each player can therefore only bet a specific, predetermined, amount. This amount is in most cases determined by the table limit. For example, when you sit at a $1/$2 limit table the following rules apply:

$1 before the flop (small bet)
$1 after the flop,
$2 on fourth street (big bet)
$2 after the river card

EXAMPLE β€œAt my home game, we sometimes play $3/$6 limit poker.”
