Raising Other Players in No Limit and Pot Limit Hold’em
Part and parcel of any poker game is that players can raise one another. In both No Limit Texas Hold’em as well as Pot Limit Texas Hold’em gamers can either make a Minimum Raise or a Maximum Raise.
A Minimum Raise is when the raise amount is at least as much as the previous bet or raise in the same round. An example of this would be that when the first player to act makes a bet of $5 then the second player must raise a minimum of $5 for a total bet of $10.
A Maximum Raise is when a player raises or bets the size of their stack (their chips on the table).
In Pot Limit Texas Hold’em a Maximum Raise could be the size of the pot, which is defined as the total of the active pot plus all bets on the table plus the amount the active player must first call before raising.
Basic Terms in Texas Hold’em
A Flop is when three cards are dealt face-up on the board. In Hold’em, the three cards on the flop are community cards, available to all players still in the hand.
The Blinds; a marker called ‘the button’ or ‘the dealer button’ indicates which player is the nominal dealer for the current game. Before the game begins, the player immediately clockwise from the button posts the “small blind”, the first forced bet. The player immediately clockwise from the small blind posts the “big blind”
The River is the fifth and final community card in a Hold’em game.
