Example text

In no-limit, a three-way pot is somewhat uncommon; usually, it's only two-way action. But in pot-limit hold'em, a lot more people will see the flops, and there will be more multiway pots, especially when you get a lot of players in the game who have a lot of money and are liberal with their preflop action. This is what makes the pot-limit side games during a tournament so juicy sometimes. If you make the nuts on these more liberal players, you'll get action from them, whereas in no-limit, you're usually up against just one guy and you won't get the action that you want.

For a minimum bet, the size of the big blind in an unraised pot, or four times the big blind if someone brings it in for that amount, you can play pocket sixes or sevens — and you might flop something. It is a game that is completely different from no-limit in this respect. In addition to the small pairs, some players will even try to sweeten the pot with a little pot-builder raise with hands like J-10 or 9-8 suited. They're hoping to build a pot with their modest raises to make sure that there's a little something w the pot in case they hit a hand.

Of course, every time you do that, you had better be right. And the man on the button has to be a decent player, one that you know will lay down a hand against a raise. 55 Playing on the Flop The strategy in pot-limit is to build the pot. Always try to maximize the amount of money that you can win when you have a winning hand. Therefore, to slow play on the flop doesn't make much sense, does it? Say that you flop a big hand and you check on the flop, and all of your opponents also check. The result is that on fourth street, all that you can bet is the amount that you could have bet on the flop.
