Most of you who are local receive these emails from a guy who promotes some games here in town. This one caught my interest because I didn't think this guy spread anything like $3-6 or $4-8, which is what would typically be described as "low limit" in the poker world... But, wow! $10-20 is now considered to be "low limit"? If that's the case I am really out of touch (and seriously underpaid)!

Hi Players :^) Tonight: Thursday: 6PM $1/$2 No LimitHoldem Thursday: 6PM $10/$20 Limit Holdem
UPDATE: On second thought, maybe he's saying that the $1-2 blinds in the No Limit game are relatively small compared to a $2-5 or $5-5 game, but still, $1-2 NL is not a small game to most people. I mean, the pot will be at least $15 or $20 preflop and bets will increase exponentially from there if people play correctly, you could easily be betting and raising $80 or more on the later streets. That's not "Low Limit" to me, but maybe I'm just poor and out of touch.
