Making the switch part 1
When you make the switch from no limit to limit sometimes it's hard to make the transition. I'm going to list some hand histories and discuss the betting differences between my limit betting and my no limit on the same hand. If anyone would like to post their own hands please feel free to do so.

Game #6995675237: Hold'em Limit ($0.25/$0.50) - 2006/11/12 -
Table 'Gienah' 6-max Seat #5 is the button
Seat 1: klitkat ($4.45 in chips)
Seat 2: badboy45 ($14.45 in chips)
Seat 4: acesinreno ($9.20 in chips)
Seat 5: cherygarcia ($4.50 in chips)
Seat 6: eraser09 ($9.50 in chips)
eraser09: posts small blind $0.10
klitkat: posts big blind $0.25
*** HOLE CARDS ***
Dealt to klitkat [Kh Ks] woohoo! nice big one to start with
acesinreno: calls $0.25
eraser09: raises $0.25 to $0.50
klitkat: raises $0.25 to $0.75 playing NL and having a raiser in front of me with a hand like this would cause me to nudge it up a wee bit more maybe 2 more x BB. I went as far as the players wanted in this limit hand.
acesinreno: calls $0.50
eraser09: calls $0.25
*** FLOP *** [3h 2d Kd]
klitkat: checks I check here trying to entice a play for a check raise on limit. If this was NL I would make a bet of 2X BB
*** TURN *** [3h 2d Kd] [Tc]
klitkat: bets $0.50 No biters on last play on limit, have to make my own momentum. If no limit, bet would be pot limiting any type of str8 draw crap.
klitkat collected $2.15 from pot
*** SUMMARY ***
Total pot $2.25 | Rake $0.10
Board [3h 2d Kd Tc]
Seat 1: klitkat (big blind) collected ($2.15)
Seat 2: badboy45 folded before Flop (didn't bet)
Seat 4: acesinreno folded on the Turn
Seat 5: cherygarcia (button) folded before Flop (didn't bet)
Seat 6: eraser09 (small blind) folded on the Turn
In no limit I think I would have seen more action on this hand PF than I did here in limit. One of the biggest differences you get between NL and limit that you have to accept is that when you get a killer hand you aren't going to make the killing you used to playing NL. And you have to adjust yourself accordingly. You have to relax and accept a pot of say $2 or $3 instead of a pot of $10 - $20. And that's a little hard.
