More and more are hooked up with poker game. This all-time favorite casino game has its humble beginning as a family card game and dramatically changed to what it is known today worldwide. In fact, it has become a prestigious event done annually in elegant hotels and casinos across the globe. Word Series of Poker or WSOP is the oldest-running poker tournament way back during 1970’s and has given out billions of dollars as cash prize. The recently concluded WSOP season was an astounding success with more than 70,000 poker players joined representing over a hundred countries all over the globe. As poker has lots of variations, so with WSOP comes with different poker events including the Limit Hold’em Championship.

The No Limit Texas Hold’em is the most famous poker game variation which has become the
main event in any prestigious poker tournament like WSOP. But, majority are puzzled on how the limit version, the limit Texas hold’em works. Well, for the limit counterpart, a fixed bet amount is established while you are only allowed of up to three raises. Besides, the strategy in playing Limit Hold’em is way different from the No limit version, though the dynamics remain the same but strategies radically change. Moreover, No Limit is somehow more profitable but Limit Hold’em is a game about slight edges of exploiting the weakness of less skilled counterparts.
