Compared to Rounders Card Club cash game offerings, there are a three notable differences.

#1. $1/$2 No Limit is now a $100–300 buy-in (hard cap)

When we asked members what cash game changes they’d like to see, capping the buy-in at $1/$2 was the #1 request.

Previously, the $1/$2 game allowed buy-ins of up to 75% the largest stack. This often led to very deep stacked games, which many members found unappealing. Putting a $300 hard cap on the buy-in addresses those members’ concerns.

Players who enjoy playing very deep stacked still have the option to do so in our $1/$3 and $2/$5 games (both of which allow players to buy-in for 100% of the biggest stack at the table).

#2. Bomb pots are now capped

Bomb pots (especially of a PLO double board variety) are a Texas poker staple.

At our Austin location, we’ve found that capped bomb pots are more popular among members and are a much better choice for protecting the ecosystem. In other words, games run longer and break less often with a cap in place.

We’ve discussed specific cap amounts with San Antonio players and have settled on higher caps compared to Austin.

Here are the caps for the most popular games:

  • $1/$2 NLH – $3 ante, $300 cap
  • $1/$3 NLH – $10 ante, $1,000 cap
  • $2/$5 NLH – $15 ante, $2,000 cap
  • $1/$2/$5 PLO – $5 ante, $500 cap

How do bomb pot caps work?

The cap applies to post-flop betting only.

For example, suppose you have $1,700 in your stack in a $1/$3 game.

You bet $90 on the flop and an opponent raises to $350. You call.

At this point, each player has put $350 into the pot post-flop. That’s $650 away from the cap and therefore the max bet is $650.

Once the cap is reached, betting halts and the hand is treated as if players are all-in.

#3. $1/$2 PLO is now $1/$2/$5 PLO and the buy-in cap has increased

To make our PLO game appealable to more players, we’ve increased the buy-in cap to $100-1,000.

Additionally, there is now a $5 bring in. No more calling for $2 and waiting for the dealer to make change for multiple players!

While we test out this new PLO buy-in structure, there will be no charge for time at PLO tables from July 3rd – 10th.
