The most common form of betting limit. A fixed limit
game sets a specific limit on all bets. Usually, the limit doubles in later rounds. Thus, a 4/8 fixed limit
game features a $4 betting limit on early rounds and an $8 bettling limit in later rounds. (In hold 'em, the lower limit applies to pre-flop
and the flop
, and the higher limit to the turn
In a fixed limit
game, the options available to a player in an unopened
pot are to check, or bet the fixed limit
. The options available to a player in an opened pot are to fold
, or raise
in the amount of the fixed limit
. The players are not allowed to size their bets.
Example: Hero is in the cut-off with pocket kings in a 9/18 fixed limit game. UTG raises to $18, and a player in middle position re-raises to $27. Hero's only options are to fold, to call the $27, or to re-raise to $36.
