Fixed Limit
When an online poker game is played for what is termed a Fixed Limit this means that players are only permitted to raise a maximum of 3 times per round of betting. Once completed all that is left to do is for those players still in the game to either fold or call. It is important to know and understand that all raises and bets are equivalent to the size of the initial blind bets. When poker is played with a Fixed Limit, players can only raise three times per betting round. When three raises have been made, the only options left for the remaining players are to fold or to call. The raises and bets are always equivalent to the size of the blinds.

No Limit
There are the most popular games played and a No Limit game means just that, there are no limits on how much you can play for, and you are allowed to bet all your chips in one bet should you feel your hand is the strongest.

Pot Limit
This is easy to understand and a Pot Limit game permits you to only bet the total of the money in the por this of course includes the amount in the pot by way of both the blind bets.
