No Limit and Pot Limit is said to be the purest form of Poker. The general game structure and rules of No Limit and Pot Limit games are identical to those of Limited games, with two very notable exceptions: There is no Lower Limit Stake or Higher Limit Stake at the table and no Cap to the Betting Rounds. Instead, the minimum and maximum amounts that players are permitted to wager are according to No Limit and Pot Limit Betting Rules/Structure.
