Aug 17, 2007
No Limit Texas Holdem is enjoyed by millions of poker buffs. As the name states, in the game there is no limit for betting. The game allows players to bet different amount of money in four betting rounds.

In this game players can bet on all of their chips, From a beginners point of view it is quite easy to play the game. However they need to be very careful on how much money they bet. The most important thing is to consider probabilities, hand rankings, and odds. It is easy to learn the rules of the game, however to win the game one need master the game to its subtle intricacies.

The game is same as the ordinary Texas Holdem. The game is played with standard 52 cards.

It starts with two cards dealt to each player. Known as Hole Cards, these cards are dealt face down. The first round of betting begins after each player is dealt with hole cards. Same as Texas Holdem, in the game also there are community cards. Known as The Flop, these cards are placed in the middle of the poker table. The players are allowed to use these cards to make the best possible poker hand.

No Limit Texas Holdem Forced Bets

Usually there are two forced bets in the game known as the Ante and the Blinds. An Ante bet is usually seen in tournament play, in which each player need to place a specified amount as bet before the game begins. The ante is not counted towards any future bets.

According to Texas Holdem rules for Blinds, two forced bets need to be placed by players on each hand. There is a small blind in the game this is half of the low limit bet size, and a big blind, which is generally same as the low limit bet size. Before each hand begins, the player positioned immediate left to the dealer is forced to post the small blind and the big blind is put up by the next player towards left. These bets are regarded as live bets as the players can select to raise even if nobody else has.

The main aim of the game is to make the best poker hand with the cards in your hand and the community cards.

The game will be a test of ones own judgment of character, mathematical skills, and common sense. The game has more money at stake when compared with the other Texas Holdem games. The potential gains and losses are also higher than other poker variations. It is better to keep off from competitive No Limit games completely If you are not a skillful player.
