Hey gang! I have been playing NLH now for about 2 years. Mostly home games. The people I play with want to start playing Limit hold em. We want to play $3/$6. I understand that $3 is the min. bet pre flop and after the flop and that $6 is the min. bet on the turn and river. My question is how to the raises work? Is there a max amount you can raise? For instance, if someone bets $3 before the flop how much can I raise it? Thanks for any help/advise.

$3 and $6 is the amount you can bet and raise on the streets, theres no minimum or maximum. hence limit.

Generally, it's 4 to 5 bets as they call them. Say someone makes a bet after the flop for $3... a raise would make it 6 (2 bets) reraise makes it 9 (3 bets) and then normally you would cap it at 12 (4 bets)...some rules allow 5 (wsop does I believe). And then the same after the turn, but it goes 6, 12, 18, 24. Hope that helps.

you can also remove the limit on amounts of bets when you are heads up...the 4 or 5 bet limit is for pots involving three or more ppl.....thus allowing you and your heads up oppennent to reraise until happy. but the bets will still be in the 3$ or 6$ increament..p.s. i wouldnt go over the 4 or 5 bets without a darn good reason too..FWIW :wall:
