How large is a 50 big bet pot (fixed limit)?

Played a 50 big bet pot the other day. Been playing limit poker live quite a few years and it was the biggest pot I've ever seen. Game was $6/12 Omaha-8 with a $10/20 kill (it was a $10/20 hand so a $1k pot).

What's the biggest fixed limit pot you've ever seen? Heads-up for a gajillion bets each doesn't count.

Oh yeah I had nut straight + nut flush draw and lost to a board pair on the river.

How large is a 50 big bet pot (fixed limit)?

Upper 40's biggest I've seen this year online, my biggest scoop is 36 Big bets. Baby flush plus nut low ftw!

Two sets capped it on the flush river, I guess they both had 2nd lows How large is a 50 big bet pot (fixed limit)?

I've played a similar sized pot at Canterbury, but it's been a little while. Are you one of the fun players, OP?

Re: How large is a 50 big bet pot (fixed limit)?

i watched a guy go ~12 bets on the river at 8/16 at canterburry many years ago.

Board was 10/j/q/k of diamonds. Obv 9d vs Ad.

The guy with the 9d was so confused but put in 6ish raises on the river.

lol, poker is fun

Re: How large is a 50 big bet pot (fixed limit)?

OP we need more information to give you a proper answer. For instance, were the chips in the pot mostly small denomination, like all whites and reds, or were people making change with greens and blacks? Because if it was all whites and reds the pot would obviously be larger than if it was full of greens and blacks, right?

Re: How large is a 50 big bet pot (fixed limit)?

I played in a 8/16 O8 game with a guy who would raise/cap preflop any four at the venetian (5bets was the max there at the time). Went to the river 8ways with all the previous streets being capped then one more bet 3 ways (5 others were all-in). So 83 bets.

It was chopped up like four ways. No sure the biggest scoop pot I've seen was.

Re: How large is a 50 big bet pot (fixed limit)?

Raise raise raise and so on all in on a board were 9s and 6s were top sets first time I PLAYED limet with my whole roll on one table New to the game some how got sixs mixed up with the 9s and thought I had the nuts , took few mins realise I lost

Always remember that pot was on a site called aces royal or something was first ever online mobile real money poker only had no limit and limit and no chat but there was preset text like gg wp and others, there was one button were when you pressed it it made the other players phone vibration, player who won kept pressing it I remember being utterly infuriating

Site went out business and went into administration never thought ever see my money on the site

Got email I think saying been bought or something and we get full balance back

Site who bought it was
Spoiler:
never even heard of poker stars back then but was nice get my cash because of them

Must bought it for some reason?
