Poker Rule: No-Limit Poker

No-limit poker (NL) involves the most strategy of all the betting structures. It is also a very fun game, although it is very intense. In each hand you could potentially win or lose your entire stack. There is no limit to the maximum bet you can make in any betting round. However, there is a minimum bet amount, which is equal to the big blind.

For example, in a $1-$2 no-limit game, the small blind posts $1 and the big blind posts $2. All players must call or raise the big blind ($2) or fold.

Let’s suppose another player bets $200, but you only have $80 at the table? You can go all-in on your $80. If you win the hand, you get only $80 from your opponent. If two other players bet $200, and you only have $80, then you would win $80 from each of them ($160 total). Then the winner between the two of them would get the remaining money (the sidepot).
