Pot-Limit Texas Hold 'Em

Postby redwill on Sun Feb 16, 2014 4:42 pm

As I mentioned in the No-Limit Hold 'Em thread, I'm looking to learn the scoring rules for pot-limit. I think I have a grasp but there's no substitute for doin' it.

If anyone is interested in helping me out with this, please sign up here.

No more than six. Got too much on my plate for more.

I'd have no idea what I'm doing, but for some reason it seems I should be playing.

I haven't played in years, so I downloaded an app for my Android. I was expecting to play against 5 or so computer opponents.

Not true.

In my first game, there were two obvious bros, with their avatars as a shirtless selfie. wtf?

It made me realize how staid LGP is, relative to the real interwebz.

so what are the ground rules as far as time limits are concerned (not trying to hurry MWB... just curious)? I saw in the other poker thread some got panties all twisted up over time limits.

Re: Pot-Limit Texas Hold 'Em

Hands are out.

Again, please be patient with me as I am trying to learn here ...

Here's what I get from Wiki:

In a pot-limit game no player can raise more than the size of the total pot, which includes:

1. Chips collected from previous betting rounds (Starting pot)
2. Previous action in the current betting round (Trail)
3. A call from the player making the raise


So the previous round = 0
Current betting round = 6
Call requires 4 from MWB = 4

So maximum raise is 10?


I see that MWB folded. OK. But what about the calculation? Any help?

That's what I was just wondering redwill.... I'd like to raise. So the pot is 6, my call would make it 10, so I can raise 10 to make the bet now 14? If so, I'd like to do that.

I think you have it right, c2i. Your 4 covers the call, so the pot goes up 4, then you can raise the pot.

Your action is effectively "call 4, raise the pot".

Golly, this is complicated. I understand why no-limit has become the standard amongst us poker-illiterate types.

But, yeah, c2i, I think you have it right.

Pot: 20

columbia is up. He can figure out what he can bet.

Haha ... while I work it out.
