Fixed Limit Hold'em Course

In Fixed Limit Hold'em you can only bet or raise a fixed amount. This makes it different from No Limit, where you can bet all the chips you have at any given time. A fixed betting structure can therefore limit your options, but also reduces the size of possible mistakes, making Fixed Limit a safer starting point for beginners, yet still a challenging game.

This course will teach you the basics of what you need to know, and how to play each different stage in a hand. As always, a quiz awaits you once you have completed the course.
