Spread-Limit Games


  Spread-limit games don’t have fixed bet sizes. 

  They are structured with a maximum bet, and you can bet any amount from $ 1 to the   maximum for the betting round.

  The first thing to keep in mind when playing spread-limit games is that you should almost   always bet or raise the maximum amount. 

  An exception is when you’re just calling, then call whatever the bet is.

  Sometimes spread-limit games are structured to allow the same betting range at every   betting round. 

 

  An example of that is 1-5.Some spread-limit games double the maximum allowable bet on   the turn. 

  An example of that is 1-4-8-8.

  No matter how the spread-limits are structured, spread-limit games tend to have two things   in common:

              1. The blinds are small compared with the maximum bet.

              2. The initial pre-flop bet is small compared with bets on future rounds.

  The small blinds and small initial bets mean that it’s sometimes correct to play very tight in   these games. 

  It’s sometimes correct to play very loose. Which you choose depends on the particular   game conditions.
