A quick look at the three main betting structures for poker.
Betting is as important to poker as water is to a fish. Without betting, it's, well, it just isn't poker. But how is betting organised?

Well, the main ways of organising a betting round are Limit, Spread Limit, Pot Limit, or No Limit.

Limit poker, like the name suggests, the bets are set at a certain limit. Typically the Big Bet is twice the Small Bet and there are an even number of betting rounds at each limit.
