2.
A poker term used for the restriction of betting. In Pot Limit, the biggest bet or raise may only match the current pot size, as opposed to No Limit, where the range of betting is unlimited.

For example, if there are 30 chips in the pot when Player A decides to bet, the most he can bet is another 30 chips. If Player B decided to raise, he would call the 30 from Player A (bringing the pot to 90), and could raise up to 90 more (This is because whenever someone raises in any form of poker, the raised amount includes the call of the original bet/raise with an extra amount on top).

The most common forms of poker played Pot Limit are Omaha and Five Card Draw, and occasionally Texas Hold 'em.

Playing poker with live money in the form of chips at a casino. There are certain tables for certain games, such as No Limit Texas Hold 'em, Limit Hold 'em, Omaha, and Seven Card Stud. Each of these tables also has a particular stake, ranging from $1/$2 into the thousands with its own minimum buy-in (No Limit and Pot Limit tables also a maximum buy-in).

Not to be confused with tournament tables, one can sit at and exit a cash table at their leisure, bringing and taking their chips with them, and may switch tables as much as they like.

At cash tables it is also customary to tip the dealer with a chip or two when you win a substantial pot, as a symbol of "thanking" the dealer for the cards. While the dealer has nothing to do with the cards other than dealing them out in random orders, their income from tips is notable enough to justify doing it both from a symbolic perspective and a friendly, sportmanlike persective. Plus, you'll seem stingy to them and the other players if you don't.
