Texas hold'em is easily the most popular poker game played in card rooms in the United States. Hold'em comes in four betting structures: limit, no-limit, pot-limit and spread-limit. No-limit hold'em (NLHE) is the rising star of poker games. A few years ago the game could not be found in a live poker room, but the popularity of televised poker has increased interest in this structure. In some rooms it rivals limit hold'em in popularity and is about even in popularity at online poker venues.

The no-limit structure allows players to bet up to the total amount they have on the table at the time the hand begins. On each betting round - preflop, flop, turn, river - the bet can be any size equal to or larger than the size of the big blind. The minimum raise size is the size of the previous bet or raise. Further details and examples of this betting structure can be found in the article on no-limit itself.[1]
