SPECIFIC POKER FORMS




Pot Limit & No Limit Poker : Play Poker

USING THE MATERIAL

    Here, we will talk about the specific forms of poker. Covered are hold’em, Omaha, seven-card stud, lowball draw, London lowball, and high-low split eight-or-better.

    Most of these poker games are usually played in pot-limit poker while the other games are played at no-limit poker.

    Understanding when to overbet the pot size, and recognizing when you are being charged too much money to stay in the pot are the two main adjustments that a pot-limit poker player must make in no-limit poker.

    Since, the rules of  play are similar, we have compressed both pot-limit poker and no-limit poker into the same chapter for games like hold’em and lowball which may be played with either betting structure.

    As you read further, pay attention to the amount on money in front of the poker players and the pot size whenever a decision is made. These factors heavily influence the right play on a big-bet poker hand.

    To get the maximum out of the book, we urge you to read all about the poker forms, including the ones you have no interest in playing.

  There are always chances that some valuable ideas discussed in one form of poker can be applied to another form of poker.

    By seeing an idea applied to several different games, you can understand it better and memorize it.

    An important concept called “Important Pot-limit Concepts” should be gone through. Since, the ideas are presented in a London Lowball poker setting we have elected to place it right after the London Lowball chapter.

    There is a quiz on the presented material following each major chapter. The score for each answer is given in brackets.

    Although, you might not be interested in all games, we recommend you to look at each question.

    The considered point could be relevant to more than one game. You can theoretically asses your ability to play in each game by adding up your score in each section and then summing it up.

    You have made a ghastly play if your choice has been awarded with a negative score. These quizzes will help you determine whether you are fully ready to combat other players.
