each player before each hand, or a blind , paid by one or two players, where
the turn to pay rotates with the dealer.
What is the minimum and maximum bet / ante

/ variant there is no maximum limit, with varying possibilities in between.
How many times can you raise within a
betting round. In some groups there is a limit of three or four raises, while
in some game contexts players can continue to raise each other indefinitely.
