Spread Limit Poker
Spread Limit Poker is Low Limit No Limit Texas Hold‘em or Omaha Poker. This is a game with a modified wagering structure to allow for a version of an “all in” wagering within Provincial regulations for Charity Casinos. All other procedures and irregularities of the game are played using Texas Hold‘em and Omaha rules of play, with the following additions/exceptions:
Buy-ins and Re-buys:
- A patron must meet the minimum buy-in requirements and not exceed the maximum buy-in in order to play.
- When a patron is deemed to be all-in and loses all of their chips, they must re-buy for the minimum requirement amount to stay in the game.
- When a patron is below the minimum buy-in level but is not out of chips and the patron wishes to re-buy, they must top up to at least the minimum buy-in amount and may not exceed the maximum buy-in.
- When a patron has at least the minimum buy-in in front of them, they may add-on for any amount (minimum $5.00) up to the total maximum buy-in for the table limit.
Table Limit: $5 - $100
Min Buy-in: $200
Max Buy-in: $500
Small Blind: $2
Big Blind: $5
- Patrons may wager up to a maximum of $100 per wager in any round. All bets must be made in increments of five dollars.
- Patrons may raise any previous wager by at least a minimum of the wager to a maximum of $100.
- Minimum raise will be the difference between the last 2 bets. For example, if the big blind is $5, the minimum raise will be to $10 (double the big blind). If the raise has been made to $50, then the following raise must be to a minimum $95 (the difference between the big blind and the raise).
- An “all-in” raise is not considered a full raise if it is not equal to or greater than one half (1/2) the minimum raise.
- Less than a full (all-in raise) raise does not re-open wagering to patrons who have already acted.
- If a player puts in a raise of 50% or more of the previous bet but less than the minimum raise, he or she will be required to make a full raise. The raise will be exactly the minimum raise allowed.
- A single oversized chip will be considered a call if a raise is not announce. If a player states raise but does not state the amount, the raise will be the maximum allowable up to the size of that chip. After the flop an initial bet of a single oversized chip without comment will constitute the size of the bet.
- On the flop, turn and river, the Opening bettor does not have to announce their bet, but it must be minimum the big blind.
- In one round of play with more than two players there can only be One Bet and Three raises. Short all in raises will be considered a raise with three or more players.
- During a Head to Head situation, there may be unlimited raises.
