Within a variation of poker distinction is also still from No Limit, Pot Limit and Fixed Limit. In the online poker rooms (see poker room reviews) generally are offered all three options.
There is a fixed amount for a bet or a raise. for example in a $ 1 / $ 2 - limit game the bet amount shall be equal in the first (pre-flop) and in the second (post flop) round of betting $ 1 (small bet). We must raise even by just $ 1 (ie to $ 2, $ 3 and then finally to $ 4) and the maximum of 3 times (ie up to max. $ 4). When was raised three times refers to as the Cap. From the turn (3.Setzrunde) amounts of the bet is $ 2 (Big Bet), thus giving itself explains the $ 1 / $ 2 During each round of betting can be max. 3x to be raised.

In pot-limit game is always the small blind and big blind is given. Not to be confused with the SmallBet and BigBet! During each round of betting can be max. be increased by the amount lying in the pot. as pot-limit $ .10 / $ .20 Small Blind Big Blind $ 0.10 + $ 0.20 = $ 0.30 The next raise (without someone else calls) may not exceed. done for $ 0.30 to $ 0.50. During each round of betting may be increased as often as you want.
The supreme discipline. At any time, any amount can be pushed into the pot, ie there is no limit for a raise, and no amount of max. Raises per betting round. This can be very expensive but also very lucrative to be ;).
