Bets are not equal when you consider their sizes or importance. In these articles, I want to throw light on the numerous types of bets that a player can make at many points in the game.
Part one consists of preFlop action.
Forced bets are the first two bets that are made to go in the pot when you are playing Hold’em game. Hence, these bets are named as “blinds”. It is because the players do not even need to take a glimpse of their cards before making this bet.
In the first round of betting, the players can either fold or call or raise. One should note that checking in this case is not allowed. The first player who does it “opens” the game.
Poker limping: limping is done when a player tries to enter by merely calling big blind. If a player is said to be limping in poker, he is usually trying to see the flop and continue to play accordingly.
Many players do not support open limping in poker.
Just like bets, a player can easily limp from any point of the game like early, middle or late point. Limping at certain point in the game speaks a lot about the playing skills of any player. For example, a straightforward player is more likely to limp in the middle pair.
Limping is just another way for the players to see the flop.
Over-limping: in an already open hand, a player decides to limp too. This situation is known as over-limping.
This is a cheap way in which one can enter the pot, more importantly if a player wishes to win big pot.
