Bets are essential in a poker game, given the fact that the pot, the main stake of most of the games depends on betting. Therefore it is of great importance for any player to have well clarified different types of bets when playing poker and also to know the rules of betting.

  • There is the opening of the pot, the first bet, which cannot be retracted by the player who made it. Then, there are a few bets categories, which depend on the position of the players, their hands, the pot limits and on the number of players in a game.
  • The forced bets are made in the first round of betting, and they consist in ante (compulsory for every player), the blind (they have to be called by two players for each round) and the bring-in (must be paid by one player at the end of the round).
  •  The straddle bets are blind bets which can buy a player the right to take the last action.
  • Betting limits fix a minimum and a maximum amount of money that can be waged in a game. There are four types of limits: no limit, pot limit, fixed limit and spread limit.

The rules for the betting are confined within the betting structure of the game, rules that specify the way wagers can be made.
