This is a discussion on Limit or no-limit? within the online poker forums, in the Cash Games section; As the title says, I have a question about limited vs non limited games. I see limited cash games aren't very popular, specially online.
I have tried to play limit HE. I didn't like it. I thought it was kind of boring. Since there is a limit on your raises, you don't have to fear getting re-raised as much, since it won't make a huge difference compared to NLHE. So you see a lot of raise, call, call, re-raise, call, call actions on every street all the time.
Sure, your loss will be small overall, but your profit will be as well.
I love unlimited. There is an opportunity to throw in the allin at any moment. Make a big raise and this will prevent the opponent from seeing the next cards on the table and thereby protecting his card. This is very important.
It is true, NLHM earnes more money but the risk of losing is also higher. However, I don't think I am patient enough to w8 for long to build a profit in LHM since it is possible (if u play solid) to make that profit faster in NLHM.
I guess this is sort of a risk vs reward situation
I'm on the fence when it comes to no limit and limit holdem games, I enjoy playing them both equally. Depending on the day and how I feel like playing decides which game I am going to play that afternoon.
No limit games have a higher variance so I mostly play those games when I'm able to focus and really want to get into the game. Limit on the other hand has much less variance, I enjoy playing there when I want to relax and not have to focus as much while wanting to just play some cards.
( I know all about the bingo players, I really don't bluff very often at all. I play tight)
your going to fold more hands than you will ever play, and will fold most hands you do play. when playing Limit, your going to whittle your stack down and lose way more games
than you would ever win. with no limit you get a chance to win back blind money and folded hand bets lost.
If playing a no limit tourney, make sure you know where the button is, and what cards you should be playing for your position. also a way to avoid the bingo players a bit is fold
fold fold fold, until you have a very strong hand, or until other players knock them out. people who play a lot of bingo poker really don't last long against tight seasoned players.
I hope this helps you out. Happy bank rolling Peace"
Most players who play online look for that "adrenaline" and excitement. Thus no limit poker is what better suits them. No doubt limit poker is way cooler that does avoid frequent all ins and annoying bingos but it becomes pretty boring for players who want to play tight and also who are looking to bluff more occasionally. That's the reason why limit poker is somewhat less popular in the online world in spite of being way better...
I’m quite sure it was Harrington who said that Limit play is great tool for total noobs, because they see the river much more often than on No limit and thus gain understanding cheaply what hands are winning on the river.
Also calculating outs and pot odds is more relaxed.
Sometimes winning and sometimes playing 6max zoom NL5 micro player with passive tight style.
i try many times play a limit poker, i have good results there but its so boring in my opinion. bluff there is almost impossible think, i like to overbets or shove river and there is not possible to do this
I like limit poker but not so much limit Holdem. If I play limit holdem its usually as part of HORSE but I don't think I agree with your comment of avoiding bingo players, I think limit encourages bingo plays rather than discouraging it because kind of like you mentioned it avoids larger losses by chasing hands.
I hate limit games, at the low stakes anyway. Way, way too much chasing - it costs less to chase, so people do it even more than they do in NLHE. PLUS, when you do actually get a good hand, you can't force the chasers to pay or fold, so they keep chasing and your odds of getting paid go way down.
I played limit cash at the beginning of my online game let's say career , but I don't think the limit edition stops donks playing any two cards , quite the opposite I would say . As for the money to win , I don't know , I couldn't understant the basic rules maybe of limit play or else I can't understand the big losses at micro stakes I used to have .
I have heard limit holdem is better for the new players , for me it wasn't ....
I find Limit and No-Limit to be extremely different games. Many NL posters do not like the idea that players can call to the river in Limit games and then beat you on the river. However, this is what makes Limit games profitable - the fact that many Limit players, especially at the lower limits, are weak poker players. They put lots of dead money into the pot - money that is yours for the taking - if you know your poker math.
Bluffing very little impact in Limit Hold'em, especially since many players call with weak hands.
I play both, with a preference for Limit, maybe because I am not too skilled at noticing bluffs.
If your good and mathematically sound then find limit as high as 5-10 to 10-20
Finding these stakes may be tough unless you live in Vegas and know of a casino that runs this game if so it's tough but profitable as a smooth grind. Most of these guys would be rockish to a lil lag but mostly fundamentally good. You play from position make good bets and make zero mistakes to maybe 1. at 3/6 my profit margin is 85 bucks at 4/8 you would get a lil more at say 120 5-10 now is near 200 on an average night and 10-20 nearing 500 or more!! It's a grind a science and a different game overall and need higher stakes to make ot worthwhile longterm and lower stakes to have more fun.
When i started playing poker LH was my favorite type of game, unfortunately the vast majority of people prefer to play No limit and i had to transition to that game but if i could i would still play LH exclusive.
I’ll play limit once in a blue moon. I can’t really get into it. Part of what I like about HE is the strategy of bluffing and hero calling in NL in a cash game. You really have to consider betsizing
When I get bad at bluffing /making bad calls at HE I switch to play PL Omaha There is less bluffing and cold calls but still has plenty of action.
I think texas holdem limit games had their glory days many years ago. Today no limit is the most widely practiced variant. But for those who like limit games there are still mixed games where there is some action. For example pot limit omaha which is very popular.
There are pretty nice Limit Holdem cash games on PS but I prefer No Limit because its easier to get someone off the hand by bluffing and on Limit Holdem you can't probably get that much value off good hands
when playing online I like to play no limit. If I was playing live then I| would prefer to play limit poker. That way I could relax more with my buddies and enjoy the game. When playing no limit poker live then you might have an early night ti go home.
I think in poker (how in life by way) good is variety... Therefore need try different kind
of poker: first of all, that to understand, what suits you best? This can only be understood
experienced way! My opinion: be best alternate no limit and limit games -- this learn
your brains switch, developed their... And at all, I'm for universalism. All will useful!
