Fixed Limit Texas Hold'em (FL) Strategy
Fixed Limit Hold’em was once the most popular variant of Texas Hold’em, until No Limit became the dominant form. Although on the surface they look very similar, the differences between Fixed Limit Hold’em and No Limit are vast. The skills needed to master one game are very different than those needed to excel in the other, and many people suggest that Fixed Limit is more of a science, compared to the art of No Limit.

What is Fixed Limit Texas Hold'em?
The fundamental difference with Fixed Limit Poker strategy is that you can only bet one amount at any one time, and can only reraise a set number of times, per street. This limits the number of decisions available to you, and as a result there is usually a more definitive answer of whether a particular play is right or wrong.
Fixed Limit Hold’em is also, therefore, a great game to learn first, because mistakes are much less costly. In No Limit you can lose everything in a single hand because of one error, but the amount you potentially can lose in Fixed Limit Hold’em is much smaller. As a result it is also a great game if you have a risk averse attitude.
Generally people play more hands for this reason also, making it a fun game for recreational players. Therefore if you are prepared to put the effort in to learn Fixed Limit Poker strategy, you may find yourself playing against much weaker competition than in No Limit.
