Minimum and maximum buy-ins in cash games

  • All games are played table stakes. Only funds that you have brought to the table before a hand begins can be wagered in that hand.
  • For Fixed Limit games, the minimum buy-in is ten times the big bet. For example, in a 1/2 game, the minimum buy-in is 20. There is no maximum buy-in at Fixed Limit tables.
  • For No Limit and Pot Limit games, the minimum buy-in is 40 times the big blind. The maximum buy-in is 100 times the big blind. For example, in a standard 1/2 NL game, the minimum buy-in is 80 and the maximum is 200.
  • Minimum and maximum buy-ins may vary by table. Any such variations will be declared before you join a table. For instance, tables labelled Short and CAP allow buy-ins of between 20 and 50 big blinds. Deep tables offer a buy-in range of 100-250 big blinds.
