Rules for Bets
In a poker game
limit, the amount you can bet is limited to a certain value. This limit will appear in the name of the game in question ($ 3/6 $ 20/40; etc.).
Thus, for example, if you are playing a game of 'limit $ 1/2', the minimum bets would be:
****- Pre-flop (before the flop): $ 1.00
****- On the flop (when the first three community cards are dealt): $ 1.00
****- On the turn (when the fourth community card has been dealt): $ 2.00
****- On the river (when the fifth and final community card has been dealt): $ 2.00
Note that you can not make a smaller bet than the big blind. Furthermore, all raises must be done in order to increase the amounts of the table.
For example, a limit set $ 1/2 increases are limited to four times the amount of the first bet made as follows:
****- Pre-flop: $ 1, $ 2, $ 3 to $ 4
****- On the flop: $ 1, $ 2, $ 3 to $ 4
****- On the turn: $ 2, $ 4, $ 6 up to $ 8
****- On the river: $ 2, $ 4, $ 6 up to $ 8
