In no-limit poker big connectors are not played as often, because their value is worth less. They can contribute to a win. But the amount one usually has to pay to play a hand in no-limit poker will often be too great to risk a lower odds hand. When a player is dealt a pair, the value of the hand increases significantly in no-limit Texas hold’em. Obviously, the higher the value of the pair, the greater your odds are of taking down the pot. As mentioned above, high pairs such as pocket aces or pocket kings, give you an opportunity to trap an opponent and perhaps even take their entire bankroll.
When playing no-limit Texas hold’em it is important to be aware of all the money, or chips, that are sitting on the table. You should always be aware of the variations of the chips because there will be often more variations in a no-limit game. Make sure you pay attention to the amount of money each player has in their stack, as well as the size of the pots at stake. If the player in the big blind position has only twice as much as the big blind itself, you may be better served to put them "all in" if you have an above average hand. The ultimate goal of the game is to make sure the other players are left with no money.
The following example is a risk vs. reward scenario that illustrates why you should be aware of the amount of money that each player has on the table.
Let’s say, hypothetically, you have $250 worth of chips in your stack while the other player has $25. The game you are playing consists of blinds of $1-$2. You are in the small blind position and your cards are QJ suited. The opposing player is in the first position and they decide to go all in. The other players at the table decide to fold all the way around to you. Now, you have a decision to make. You could call and risk your $24 for his $25 bet or you could follow suit like the others and fold. In this situation, to call would be considered an unnecessary risk, because even though you have two high cards in you hand, you still don't have anything of value. Even a pair of deuces holds slightly better odds to win against your QJ suited. Had several players called the $25 bet, let's say five players, there would be a pot of $152 (6 x $25 + $2 from the big blind position). In this case, it may be wise to call because the pot ($152) is worth the risk of just another $24.
