Pot Limit Poker

We offer Pot Limit Hold'em and Pot Limit Omaha table games and tournaments. The progressively higher bets make pot limit very exciting and different from a limit game.

General betting rules for Pot Limit Poker

The mechanical difference between regular limit games and Pot limit games are the betting amounts; in Pot-Limit, a player is permitted (assuming he has enough chips in front of him at the start of the hand to do so) to raise any amount within a certain range, up to the pot size at the time it is that player's turn to act. 

Minimum eligible raise: The minimum allowable raise amount must be at least as much as the previous bet or raise in the same round. As an example, if the first player to act bets $10 then the second player must raise a minimum of $10 (total bet of $20). 

Maximum eligible raise: The maximum allowable raise is the size of the pot. The size of the pot is defined as the total of the pot in the middle plus all bets on the table plus the amount the active player must first call before raising. Let's consider an example where the blinds are $1-$2. The next player to act can fold, call the $2, or raise by placing any amount between $4 and $7 in the pot. If the player bets $4, he has raised the minimum, because the previous bet was $2, and he is doubling that. If the player bets $7, he is betting the maximum, because he is first calling the $2 blind bet, creating a total pot size of $5, and then raising the size of the pot. The $2 call plus the $5 raise yields the $7 bet. Computing maximum raises can get tricky and we suggest you practice computing maximums before playing (our poker software will calculate the proper raise range allowed and will not allow a player to make a raise too small or too large). 

As you can see, if several players in a row decide to make pot-sized raises, the size of a pot can escalate rather dramatically and we do not recommend Pot limit games for beginners or players not comfortable with large betting amounts.

Our pot limit and no limit tables have a betting "slider" which allows you to bet many amounts between the minimum and maximum bet size. You can customize the location of the "slider" bet feature in the game.
