Winning real money in poker is not just about winning pots. In fact, being an overall winning player probably has more to do with losing less when your cards don’t come in the running than it has to do with the pots you win when you have the best hand.

There are three types of pots in poker:
The stakes are limited, not the pot although if but
indirectly whose value will depend on the number of players cheering. There are
then 2 limits: for example in Texas Hold’em Limit $5 / $10, during the first 2
betting rounds you can bet $5 then 4 10 during the last 2 laps. You now
understand why the pot is, therefore, also limited.
The maximum amount of the pot is limited (per stroke
of course). Players can bet as much as they like in the different betting
rounds as long as the pot limit is not reached. In other words, we could
imagine that a player starts to stack right from the hand, up to the limit of
the pot. Thereafter there will be no more possible bets.
As the name suggests, there is no limit on players who
can then bet as much as they want during speaking rounds for any total amount
of the pot. It is the auction that leaves most of the bluff. It is also the
auction used during the flagship and legendary event of the world poker
championships: the Main Event of the World Series of Poker.
