CAP Tables

Cap tables allow you to enjoy No-Limit and Pot-Limit games without the risk of losing all your bankroll in one hand. Hands on Cap Tables are played exactly as in regular No-Limit and Pot-Limit games. Here is the catch: once the betting cap is reached, all active players in the hand will be considered all-in only with the ability to match the bet that reached the cap.

For example, if you’re in a $60 Cap game with $400 in bankroll, you may only wager up to $60 of your stack on a single hand, including pre-flop and post-flop plays.

In the following example, you are seated at the bottom centre position as Player5.

 

You have $281 on the table and the stakes are $1/$2 with a $60 cap. After the blinds are posted, Player9 raises to $6. Now it's your turn.

 

In this case, even though you have $281 in front of you, you can only raise a maximum of $54, i.e. put $60 into the pot, since the cap is $60 for this table. If you bet the cap and Player 9 calls your bet by adding another $54 to the pot, both of you are considered all-in for this hand. There is no more betting and the pot stands at $123. Even if your opponent were to win this hand, you would still have $221 remaining to play.
