Texas Hold'em was originally (of course) from Texas. However the game gained a foot-hold in the Vegas casinos thanks to poker pioneers Crandell Addington, Doyle Brunson and Amarillo Slim.

There are three forms of Texas Hold'em, and while the game play is identical, the difference comes down to the betting.

No Limit Texas Hold'em

As the name suggest in No Limit there is no maximum amount a player can bet. A player can bet all of their chips at any time.

Pot Limit Texas Hold'em

In Pot Limit a player can only bet a maximum of what is already in the pot. Pot limit is a good choice for those players who enjoy the excitement of big bets, but don't like the idea of risking their entire stack on one hand.

Limit Texas Hold'em

In Limit Hold'em a player can only bet the specified table limit. There are always two limits given on limit tables. An example is $1/$2. This means that a player can bet $1 on the first two rounds of betting and $2 in the second two rounds.
