No Limit Hold’em Rules and Strategies


  • Date: September 13, 2016

No Limit Hold'em is the perfect storm of luck, action, and aptitude. It’s leading event in the World Series of Poker and has also become one of the most popular games at Spirit Mountain. We get the hype. It’s a rewarding game that keeps you on your toes!

If you haven’t played No Limit Hold’Em yet, no sweat. Here are a few tricks to make you pro-ready in no time.

What makes it different?
Whereas most Texas Hold’Em variations carry betting limits, No Limit Hold’Em goes in the opposite direction. Players can bet or raise any amount over the minimum raise - and they can bet all of their chips at any time.

How is the minimum determined?
The amount of the previous raise determines the minimum. If you want to raise, it needs to be equal to or above the big blind.

I’ve been dealt my cards. What are my options?
Like most poker games, you have three choices. You can:

  • Call to match the bet
  • Raise to increase the opening bet, or
  • Fold to remove yourself from the hand

How is my maximum raise determined?
Your maximum raise is equivalent to your full stack of chips.

How many raises are allowed during each hand?
It’s all in the name - there is no limit to the amount of raises that can occur in any given hand!

What are a few strategies that can enhance my chances of winning?
We’re glad you asked. Here are a few simple steps you can take to improve your game:

  • Limit the amount that you limp
  • Manage your bankroll carefully
  • Keep your bets consistent to disguise your hand
