Limit Texas Holdem

In a fixed limit betting structure, players choose whether to bet or not the amount is fixed by the rule of the game. To create a bluff environment, the fixed amount generally doubles at some point in the game. This double wager amount is referred to as a big bet. For example, a four-round game called "10 and 20 limit" (10/20) may specify that each bet in the first two rounds is $10, and that each big bet used in the third and fourth rounds is $20. This amount applies to each raise, not the total amount bet in a round, so a player may bet $10, be raised $10, and then re-raise another $10, for a total bet of $40, during the game. Also a fixed limit game has a predetermined number of raises in a round and each casino or game has its own rules three to four is the norm. A common exception in this rule practiced in some holdem games is to allow unlimited raising when a pot is played heads up , when there are only two players ,this has occurred because all other players have folded, and only two remain. Many card rooms will permit these two players to continue re-raising each other until one player is all in.

Sometimes a fixed limit game is played as a kill poker game. In such a game, a kill hand is triggered when a player wins a pot over a certain fixed amount, or when the player wins a certain number of consecutive hands. The player triggering the kill must post a kill blind, generally either 1.5 times or double , a half and full kill, the amount of the big blind. In addition, the betting limits for the kill hand are multiplied by 1.5 or doubled, respectively. Limit holdem is about making correct decisions in every pot Limit holdem is more technical, no limit is more psychological
