No Limit, Pot Limit, and Fixed Limit Teen patti
Poker Betting Structures
No Limit, Pot Limit, and Fixed Limit
The first thing to note is that whatever teen patti limits you are using whilst playing poker, you can never lose more money than you have in front of you on the table, so all those films with people playing for a few dollars and someone suddenly loses their house/car/shirt etc, can't happen! That said there are huge differences between the different teen patti structures used in poker, and these are outlined below. No Limit This is the most common teen patti structure for Texas teen patti, and is by far the most popular over all formats, cash, stt and mtt. Basically it does exactly what it says on the tin - there's no teen patti limit, and you can bet anything from a minimum bet (the size of the big blind) up to all of your chips, during any teen patti round! This means that at any point you can be put to the test for all of your chips at any point in a hand if your opponent has equal to your stack or more. Some online poker sites offer capped no-limit cash games, where if a player wages a certain amount he is considered all-in, and can bet no extra over that amount, nor fold out of the hand. In this way the volatility of no limit is reduced.
This is the format most commonly used for Omaha and Omaha hilo games, both cash and tournaments. It is often used for stud games as well, and occasionally for Texas teen patti. Under this structure a player can bet anything up to the size of the pot at that point. If a player has a bet to call when it is his turn to act, he may raise by the size of the pot after his call. For example, pre-flop in a PL tournament, with blinds at 50/100, the first player to act could raise up to 250 more, putting in 350 total, but decides to just call the big blind. The next player to act may call 100, or raise up to 50+100+100+100= 350 more, 450 in total. If there is no bet for the player to call, then the maximum bet amount is simply the current total of the pot. In some cash games, for simplicity, the small blind is considered to have "completed" and made up the big blind, and for pot size calculations is treated as a big blind.
This teen patti structure involves fixed sized bets, and is used occasionally in all stud and flop based games, mainly for cash games, although tournaments are also run with this structure. There are usually 2 set bet limits, one used in the earlier teen patti rounds and one used in the later ones. For instance a /20 fixed limit Texas Teen patti game will allow bets and raises pre flop and on it, and bets and raises for the turn and river bets and raises. This means that the blinds will be 5/10. This contrasts to a 10/20 PL or NL game where the blinds would be 10 and 20 respectively. There is no option whatsoever of how much to bet or raise, players can either check, when available, fold, call or raise. There is usually a limit of 3 raises, meaning that when someone bets 10, the next player can raise to 20, the next can raise to 30, and finally the next player can raise to 40, thereafter players will only have the option of calling for 40 or folding. Some live cash games allow an unlimited number of raises when the pot is heads up, until one player is all in.
